Biography

Ellen Toni White (born 9 May 1989) is an English international footballer who plays as a forward for Manchester City and the England national team. With England, she has played at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup, the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup and the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, reaching the semi-finals in the latter two tournaments. She was also part of the Great Britain team for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Having progressed through Arsenal Ladies' academy, White returned to the Gunners in 2010 after spells with Chelsea and Leeds United, later joining Notts County.

Club career

Early career

White's father, Jon White, ran a soccer academy called 'Mini Dux' in Aylesbury, where White played her early football. She then played football for Aylesbury Town before being spotted by Arsenal Ladies scouts at the age of eight.

Chelsea

Ellen White left Arsenal aged 16 to join London rivals Chelsea Ladies in 2005. White was top scorer for Chelsea Ladies for three seasons.

Leeds United

White left Chelsea to join Leeds Carnegie in June 2008. Within months of signing for Leeds, she suffered a cruciate ligament injury that kept her out of the game for a lengthy spell. In February 2010, she scored twice as Leeds beat Everton Ladies in the final of the FA Women's Premier League Cup.

Arsenal

In July 2010, White was delighted to return to Arsenal after five years away. The Leeds squad had broken up following a funding crisis.

Notts County

White left Arsenal at the end of the 2013 season, joining Notts County in time for the 2014 season.

In 2014, White suffered an ACL injury and was out for the entire WSL season, in January 2015 the club confirmed she was back in training.

Birmingham City

White left Notts County in 2017 and signed for Birmingham City Ladies after her contract had expired. Despite being offered a new contract by Notts County, White made the move to the West Midlands, which seemed even more prudent after the latter were disbanded. White scored the winning penalty against Chelsea to take Birmingham to the 2017 FA Women's Cup Final.

Manchester City

In May 2019, White announced she was joining Manchester City.

International career

England

White played for England at under-17, under-19, under-20 and under-23 levels. She made her senior England debut in March 2010 at home to Austria, scoring in the final minute as England won, 3–0.

After being selected in England's 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup squad, White scored a "wonder goal" in a 2–0 group stage win over Japan, who ultimately won the trophy. White was personally recognised for her form over 2011, being voted the England Women's Player of the Year.

White was selected for England's UEFA Women's Euro 2013 Squad. However, after scoring England's only goal in the friendly defeat to Sweden leading into the tournament, White was left frustrated by lack of service throughout the tournament as England crashed out at the group stage.

White was named in England's 2015 Women's World Cup squad after scoring three in qualification. White netted two in an 8–0 win over Turkey and another in a 6–0 win over Belarus but failed to score in the finals which saw England finish third—their best world cup performance.

White scored in England's opening match of the 2017 Women's Euros in a 6–0 win over Scotland. This followed two goals in qualifying, in two different 7–0 victories over Serbia. England finished top of group D, but were knocked out in the semi-finals by the eventual tournament champions Netherlands.

At the 2019 Women's World Cup, she scored in England's opening game against Scotland, before scoring twice in England's final group stage game against Japan. White scored her fourth of the tournament in the round of 16 match against Cameroon, and later scored her fifth in a 3–0 quarter final win over Norway. In the semi-final match against the USA, White scored the equaliser before having a second goal disallowed by VAR. She also won a penalty for England; however, the penalty was not converted and England was beaten by the holders – losing 2–1. Her performance during the tournament has been compared with that of Harry Kane's World Cup performance due to their similar goal scoring record. England finished in fourth place, losing to Sweden 2–1 in the third place play-off; although, White had a goal ruled out for handball by VAR. White ended the tournament as joint top goalscorer with six goals, with that, she became England women's all-time top World Cup goalscorer and was awarded the Bronze Boot—as she recorded fewer assists than Silver and Golden Boot winners Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe respectively.
