Rachel Daly has enjoyed an England renaissance under Phil Neville.
Plying her trade across the pond, the 26-year-old was voted Houston Dash’s most valuable player for 2018 after scoring a career-high 10 goals and thrice being named in the NWSL team of the month.
This fine run of form didn’t go unnoticed by her national team boss, as Neville added Daly to his SheBelieves Cup squad last year and played her against Germany, her first England appearance in a year.
The Harrogate native has continued to thrive under Neville’s tutelage and has been named in a squad for a major tournament for the first time.
Daly believes her versatility has worked against her at times, but she is able to operate effectively as a full-back, a wing back or even in the frontline.
She scored on her senior team debut against Serbia in June 2016.
