She said, “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of! I became a professional player when I was a teenager, and I’ve grown up playing football since I was four, so to experience a moment like this is very special. I’m really grateful to be here.

“I’m a quick player and I love to get forward. I know I have a more defensive mentality, but I like to get forward and join the attack.”
