Casey Stoney was appointed England captain in May 2012.
The defender made her senior team debut away to France in August 2000, aged just 18.
She went on to become just the fifth-ever player to earn 100 caps for the England Women’s team – also against France, in March 2012.
The Lincoln Ladies star was an unused substitute during Euro 2005 but she became a key member of the squad that qualified for the 2007 World Cup in China, England’s first World Cup appearance for 12 years. Stoney was one of only four (England) players to feature in every minute.
Back then Stoney operated primarily at left-back, and it was in this position she started the 2009 Euros. Suspension ruled her out of the second group match, against Russia, but she came straight back into the team and helped her country get to the Final, where they lost to perennial champions Germany.
Next up it was the 2011 World Cup campaign, by which time Stoney had moved into the centre of defence alongside White. England qualified unbeaten for the Finals in Germany and Stoney featured in every match, captaining her country to victory over eventual World Champions Japan. She also scored in the quarter-final penalty shoot-out defeat to France.
Stoney then captained her country during an unbeaten Euro 2013 qualifying campaign, but not before she had donned the armband for Team GB at London 2012.
