Eniola Aluko has decided to call it a day on her career at the age of 32, making her announcement this week.
After making her debut for Birmingham City at just fifteen years old, Aluko established herself as a regular in the team and made her senior debut for England three years later. She played in all three matches as England hosted the Euro 2005 Finals as an 18-year-old and even took one of her A Level exams on the morning of their match against Denmark.
In the same year, she scored the winning goal in the FA Women's Cup Final for Charlton Athletic against Everton at Upton Park, and a year later gave a dazzling performance and netted both as the Addicks beat Arsenal 2-1 in the Premier League Cup Final.
Eni was a member of the England team which reached the Final at Euro 2009, the only major Final they have reached since 1984, and scored a fantastic individual goal to seal a 3-2 win in the quarter finals against hosts Finland. She also played a major part when her countrry won bronze at the 2015 World Cup, winning the penalty, scored by Fara Williams, which won the third place play-off against Germany.
After coming close to winning major honours on her return to Birmingham, Eni moved on to Chelsea where she won two FA WSL titles as well as the FA Women's Cup. She then took the decision to play the last two seasons of her career at Juventus, where she won the Serie A title.
In all, Eni won 102 caps for England and scored 33 times, and lifted every major honour in the domestic game. She is the third centurion to call time on her career in the last 18 months, following Alex Scott and Karen Carney.
