ON TARGET: Ellen White.

ON TARGET: Ellen White.

It’s proving to be quite the World Cup showing from Ellen White.

The striker, who joins Manchester City this summer, hit her fifth goal of the tournament as England beat Norway 3-0 in the quarter-finals to move into joint-first in the goal-scorer rankings.

White is tied with the United States’ Alex Morgan and boasts an impressive goals to minutes ratio, registering once every 67 minutes so far.

Her strike in the last eight, a close-range tap in to finish off a wonderful team move, was her sixth World Cup finals goal, making her the Lionesses record World Cup goal-scorer, while she is also the first English player, man or woman, to score in four consecutive games at single edition of the tournament.

Phil Neville’s squad will no doubt take confidence from the 30-year-old’s inspired form, which, if maintained, will give England a real chance of reaching the final.

White officially becomes a City player on 1 July ahead of the a 2019/20 season in which Nick Cushing’s side will look to reclaim the FA WSL title.
