BIO

The FA Crest

A player for the big occasion, Jill Scott is one of just 11 Lionesses centurions.

The influential midfielder steps up to the plate whenever her country needs her most, and her 15-year England career has been punctuated with some key strikes – think the winner against Netherlands in the Euro 2009 semi-final, the equaliser against Belgium in Euro 2017 qualifying and the cute finish in the 3-0 win over Wales which sealed England’s place at France 2019.

Scott made her debut against Netherlands in August 2006 and was on the plane to China a year later, where she scored in the 6-1 win over Argentina.

The 34-year-old, who has appeared at four World Cups and three European Championships, won her 100th cap against Australia in 2015.

When Scott started the 3-0 win over Cameroon at France 2019, it was her 18th appearance at a World Cup finals, the most of any England player in history.

Like many of her England team-mates, Scott has won every domestic honour with Manchester City and scored in the Citizens’ Women’s FA Cup Final victory over Birmingham City in 2017.
