Eniola Aluko has been involved in top-level football for over half her lifetime. She broke into Birmingham City’s first team aged 14 and from there the only way was up.
She fired Birmingham to the second-tier title aged 15. She made her England debut at 17. Then on to Charlton, Chelsea and club football in the USA and Italy.
To three World Cups – including a third-place finish in 2015 – and two European Championships during a 102-cap international career. Oh, and let’s not forget three WSL titles, two FA Cups, a Scudetto and a Coppa Italia.
Now she is at the top of the game in a different sense, in the boardroom as sporting director of the NWSL’s newest club, Angel City, who are part-owned by Serena Williams, Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman and Mia Hamm as well as Aluko herself and are bringing women’s soccer back to Los Angeles after an 11-year hiatus.
