A tall, strong forward, Ellen really made a name for herself during the 2011 World Cup qualifiers, and then subsequently in the Finals themselves.
She scored on her debut against Austria in March 2010 and has an international goal ratio of better than one in three, including a wonderful lob against eventual world champions Japan in Augsburg.
Her impressive form for the Three Lions earned her the Vauxhall England Player of the Year for 2011, as voted for by fans on TheFA.com.
Ellen's goalscoring touch has continued into 2013 after she top-scored at the Cyprus Cup with three goals, against Italy, Scotland and New Zealand.
Signed by Arsenal Ladies from Leeds Carnegie, where she won The FA Women’s Premier League Cup in February 2010, her goals helped fire the Gunners to a domestic treble of The FA Women's Cup, The FA WSL and The FA WSL Continental Cup in 2011.
