Chloe sealed her place in English football history on 31 July 2022 when she scored the extra-time goal to seal a 2-1 victory over Germany in the UEFA EURO 2022 Final at Wembley Stadium.

It sealed a remarkable comeback for the west Londoner, who grew up just a bus ride away from the national stadium, having bounced back from a serious knee injury to fire her way into Sarina Wiegman's squad just a few weeks before the EUROs began.

And aside from her title-winning goal, she'd played an important role in the EURO squad with her pace and direct approach from the bench throughout the competition.

Chloe initially made her senior team bow in a game with Austria in Vienna in November 2018, having caught the eye with her form at domestic level with Everton.

She was no stranger to the international scene by then, having previously collected caps at WU17, WU19 and WU20 level, ending with a bronze medal at the FIFA WU20 World Cup in August 2018.

Despite making her name in the north west with both Everton and then Manchester City, Chloe hails from the capital and first cut her teeth in the BWSL with Arsenal, having come through their youth ranks after being spotted playing in Hanwell, west London.

Growing up as the youngest of seven siblings, with five brothers, she was rarely without a ball at her feet and has credited her progression in her formative years playing street football.

By 17, she'd made her debut for Arsenal in 2015 but after finding first-team opportunities hard to come by with the Gunners she opted for a switch to Everton on loan in 2016 before making a permanent switch the following year.

After joining City in July 2020, she made an electric start to her time with the Blues and worked her way back into England contention but an unfortunately-timed ACL knee injury in May 2021 ruled her out until 2022.
