Alex Scott is part of a bright future for women's football
Get to know Alex Scott, one of England's most accomplished athletes, who represented the England Lionesses in 140 matches and scored the championship-winning goal that helped Arsenal claim their first and only UEFA Women's Champions League title. You'll learn about the Priceless moments in her football career, and in retirement as a groundbreaking pundit, a Member of the Order of the British Empire, and so much more.
Alex Scott is loved for her distinguished football career by fans in England and abroad—yet that's just the start of her success. Awarded an MBE in 2017 for her sports achievements, Scott is also lauded for her cultural and educational contributions, including the founding of her namesake academy for women's football and scholastic training. Since her football retirement, Scott has already made history becoming the first permanent female host of BBC’s Football Focus, the first female Pundit for Sky Sports' Super Sunday and the first female commentator for the BBC for the FIFA Men's World Cup.
This football prodigy was signed by Arsenal at just 8 years old. In her twenties, Scott's star started to shine even brighter. In the 2006-07 UEFA Women's Cup Final, she scored the first and only goal against Umeå IK during stoppage time in the first leg, giving Arsenal their first UEFA Women's Champions League title en route to the club's historic sextuple, which included winning the Women's Premier League, FA Women's Cup, Women's League Cup, Women's Community Shield, and London Women's Cup in the same season.
With so many highlights on her ever-growing resume, Scott has plenty of stories to tell. Now, she's sitting down to share some of her favourite Priceless moments from her football career, along with some insights on the future of women's football. She details what it meant to don the England uniform 140 different times for her home country, and how she plans to continue breaking barriers with new projects in her retirement.
