About Karen Carney MBE
With over 100 caps for England under her belt, and currently playing for Chelsea Ladies FC and England's Lionesses, Karen Carney definitely has a knack for reaching her goals.
Karen was listed in the New Year's Honours List in 2017 to receive an MBE for her services to football.
She made her senior debut for England aged 17, against Italy in 2005. Her success was only just beginning when later that year she became an integral part of the team at the UEFA Women's Euro 2005, scoring a last-minute, game-winning goal in the win over Finland.
Her fantastic track record performing for England resulted in her receiving her 100th cap at Wembley Stadium in November 2014, only the fourth English woman to reach the milestone at the time. Karen also took her skills stateside, playing a season in the USA with the Chicago Red Stars.
Alongside winning 66 matches, and notching 27 goals for her country to date, Karen signed with Chelsea Ladies FC on New Years Day this year. Currently a winger for the club, Karen has already clocked up an exciting career prior, featuring both Arsenal FC and Birmingham City FC, where she became the first woman to be inducted into the club’s hall of fame.
This football season, Karen returns to Chelsea Ladies as Captain of the team.
Having also represented Great Britain in the 18-player squad at the 2012 London Olympic games, we think it’s safe to say Karen lives and breathes football.
Karen also regularly appears on Sky Sports, talkSPORT and on Premier League Productions, providing expert analysis on various games from the studio.
