Managers and players from past and present paid tribute to England women’s record goalscorer, who has quit football at 33
Given that Ellen White has spent so many years perfecting the art of being in the right place at the right time, it perhaps should not come as a total surprise that England women’s record goalscorer is retiring from football at the zenith of her career.
Three weeks after helping Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses win Euro 2022 by beating Germany at Wembley the 33-year-old has gone out on the high she strove so hard, for so long, to achieve. After scoring 52 goals for England in 113 senior matches White can be left harbouring few, if any, regrets about a CV which includes appearances at three World Cups and three European Championships, in addition to representing Great Britain at two Olympics.
