Ellen White retires from professional soccer

After a European Championship in her own country in 2022, 92 goals in the Barclays WSL and 53 goals for the Senior England Team, 33-year-old strike


After a European Championship in her own country in 2022, 92 goals in the Barclays WSL and 53 goals for the Senior England Team, 33-year-old striker Ellen White has decided to hang up her boots and end her great football career this 2022.

The English attacker whose last team was Manchester City, had a career of almost 20 years in women’s professional soccer, going through several great teams in England and being a vital part of that new generation of soccer players who came to give the English team a change and to raise the level of this country at an international level, bearing fruit for this summer with the great championship they won against the powerful German National Team.

Throughout her career, White paraded through several teams in England and in absolutely all of them she managed to stand out and in most of them, win at least one title, being one of the most successful English soccer players today, since since her debut at Chelsea in 2005, they were collecting league and cup titles with their respective teams.

He won 3 County Cups with the Blues, a cup with Leeds, 2 leagues, 3 FA Cups and two league cups with Arsenal, then he lived a few years of drought with Notts County and Birmingham City and later, after his transfer to Manchester City in 2019, he won an FA Cup and a league cup.

Without a doubt, Ellen White says goodbye to the fields 17 years later as one of the most outstanding footballers that England has produced and as the top historical scorer for her National Team. Incredibly, this is the story of Ellen White, a woman who was denied playing soccer as a child on a boys’ team despite scoring over 100 goals. Today, she retires as a legend.
