66: Ellen White

White’s superb year was only marred by the injury that ruled her out of its latter stages. Before that, the Birmingham and England striker only failed to score in five of the 13 league games she played. She scored two against Manchester City and a hat-trick against her former club Arsenal, leading the Blues’ short-lived charge towards the top end of the WSL in 2017-18. Her year for the national team started brightly with two goals against Germany at the SheBelieves Cup before injury ruled her out of the last few training camps.

Phil Neville, England head coach:

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Ellen this season. A proper forward, who was named England Women’s player of the year in June. Ellen always puts in the extra hours and is extremely well respected across football.  She’s suffered from injury in the last few weeks, but I know how much effort and dedication she’s putting in to ensure she returns stronger than ever.”
