Manchester City are delighted to announce the signing of Canadian forward Janine Beckie.
The 23-year-old joins the Club on a one-year deal from Sky Blue FC subject to international clearance, having also represented Houston Dash and Texas Tech University.
One of the most exciting young talents, Beckie - a dual-citizen of Canada and the US - spent her early life in Saskatchewan before moving to Colorado. During her time at University, she became the all-time leading goalscorer with a remarkable 57 career goals.
Beckie would rewrite history once more on the international stage. After making her international debut for Canada's Under-20s, she was promoted to the senior squad and netted three goals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, helping her country to a bronze medal.
On the breezy afternoon of 3 August 2016, she bagged a goal that would forever mark her international playing career. A proverbial blink-and-you’d-miss-it affair, Beckie lasered in a pass from Christine Sinclair before most spectators had even fully settled into their seats - a feat that anointed her the holder of the record for fastest-ever goal scored in Olympics games history.
