Biography

Rachel Yankey became only the second English women’s player in history to reach the 100-cap mark in 2010, joining Gillian Coultard in achieving the milestone.

The left winger, who was the first professional female football player in Britain, was missing from England’s Euro 2009 squad but returned to form in World Cup qualifying, celebrating her century of caps with a goal and the captain’s armband. In 119 appearances for England, a joint record with Coultard, she has scored 18 goals.
