And with preparations for the summer starting to hot up, the 30-year-old sat down with FATV for a special Q&A…

If the whole world was listening what would you say?
We have a huge game on Friday at MK Dons v USA 8pm let's get all you England fans there #boom

What age were you when you started to become professional at football?

23. I was drafted to the WPS and played for the Boston Breakers for 3 years then returned Arsenal to be pro.

Next time you're in Borehamwood, can I take you for an all you can eat Chinese at the Dragon Garden?

Thanks for the offer but I'm not a big fan of Chinese food, how about Nandos? Other chains are available, ha!

Who is the best player you have played against?
Think I'm gonna have to say Marta. So quick, skilful and I love playing against players of that class.

Where's your favourite place you've travelled with England?

I would have to say I really enjoyed going to Montenegro with the team last year, it was a little hidden gem of the world.

Which footballer inspired you to play football?

Got to be @IanWright0 loved his passion always played with the biggest smile on his face and loved the game so much.

How important are playing the likes of Germany & USA in preparation for Canada in June?

It's huge that we play games like this, you have to test yourself against the best there is and Germany USA are that.

How old were you when you played your first England game? And were you really nervous?

2004 against Holland. Think I was 19. I wasn't nervous, more so excited to have a England shirt on. It was a dream come true.

Best match you've ever played in?

France in 2006. A game all to play for. Whatever team won went to the World Cup. It was a game full of emotion for us all.

If you wasn't a footballer, what would you be doing now?

That's a real hard one. Football has always been my dream and my passion and given me so much that I will always b thankful 4.

Most memorable goal scored?

2007 champions league final for @ArsenalLadies. It meant so much to the club.

Ok the gaffer @Mark_Sampson has turned up, trying to banter me about my grammar so I'm out of here, job done, ha. Thanks for all you Q'S.

See you all at the game Friday, cheering on the team!!! Have a great day x
