A member of England's victorious EURO 2022 winning squad, Demi was one of the experienced heads in Sarina Wiegman's group as they made history on home turf.
Often cited by team-mates as the strongest member of the squad, Demi finally found a medal around her neck having previously featured at EURO 2019 and in the 2019 World Cup, where England were knocked out at the semi-final stage.
Born in the Midlands but raised in South Shields, Stokes joined Sunderland aged 16 and was a key member of the Black Cats squad that reached the Women’s FA Cup Final in 2009 – the same year she helped England win the U19 Euros in Belarus.
Stokes accepted a scholarship at the University of Florida and it was in her fourth and final year across the pond that she made her senior England bow, in a 1-1 draw with Norway in January 2014.
She became a regular member of Mark Sampson’s squad and scored her only England goal to date in the 9-0 demolition of Montenegro just three months after her debut.
After being overlooked for Canada 2015, when England claimed third place, Stokes came roaring back and earned her place in the squad for EURO 2017 and the 2019 edition, where the Lionesses reached the semi-finals in both.
Find out when you can see Demi in action for Manchester City in the Barclays Women's Super League and how to get tickets!
