At her old elementary school, Ellen White met Sue Smith, a former England international, to reflect on her record-breaking career;
The Lionesses want to have an international effect on their home soil as the Women’s Euros get closer.
But first, Sue Smith from Sky Sports got up with one of England Women’s most recognizable players, Ellen White, at her former school, William Harding Primary School in Aylesbury.
The Manchester City star was prepared to push boundaries and shatter social stereotypes in order to become the player she is today.
She broke the record for most goals scored by an English women’s team player against Latvia on her 101st cap earlier this season.
White’s father, Jon, who ran a soccer academy called “Mini Ducks,” introduced her to football in a time when there were no women’s football teams or leagues to foster the aspiration of any young female.
Despite being the only girl on the team, it gave her the enthusiasm and confidence she needed to join the primary school team and later the men’s team at Aylesbury United.
She reportedly scored over 100 goals before Arsenal saw her when she was just eight years old.
