Lionesses fans voted for the Manchester City striker who started the year with a hat-trick in England’s 6-0 victory over Northern Ireland. Whilst the voting was based solely on England performances, White also shone at this summer’s Tokyo Olympic Games scoring six goals to help Team GB’s football squad reach the quarter-finals.
City teammate and England captain Steph Houghton presented White with the trophy at England’s Southampton training base where the squad are preparing for their first FIFA World Cup 2023 qualifying match against North Macedonia on Friday.
England fans voted for the 32-year-old striker ahead of her Manchester City teammate Alex Greenwood and Chelsea’s Bethany England in second and third respectively.
England face North Macedonia on Friday evening at St Mary’s Stadium [kick-off: 7:00pm]. Tickets are available on the day, priced at £15 for adults and £2.50 for children.
