Football Shorts – Casey Stoney

England captain Casey Stoney runs through some quickfire Club Website questions on her experience of the beautiful game. Don’t worry, it’s just for fun!

Casey StoneyFirst team: The Blue Arrow Boys Team Under 10s

First pair of boots: A pair of Lotto hand-me-downs

Playing position as a kid: Either up front or in behind the front two. I always wanted to be a striker. I just wasn’t quick enough!

Favourite team: Arsenal

Football hero as a kid: Ian Wright

Best place you’ve played football: Wembley

Career highlight: Beating Brazil 1-0 at Wembley (Olympic Games, 31 July 2012)

Low point: Losing 2-0 to Canada in the Quarter Final (just three days later)

Best opponent you’ve played against: Birgit Prinz (Germany)

Toughest opponent in training: Rachel Williams (England, Team GB) I would say. She’s a bit of a brute.

Who’s the worst in training but turns it on for match day: Precious Hamilton (Lincoln Ladies) definitely. Lucky if she even gets to training at time definitely.

Biggest joker: Jill Scott (England, Team GB)

Biggest poser: Sophie Walton (Lincoln Ladies)

Best part of your game: Probably reading the game

Thing you’d most like to improve: I’d love to be quicker

Best thing about women’s football: We don’t dive around as much as the men

If I wasn’t a footballer… I’d love to be a pop star, but I can’t sing.

I love football because… So many reasons… because it has changed my life.
