Hope Powell, the coach of the England Women's team, has praised Faye White after the Arsenal defender announced her retirement from playing football.
“Faye was a fantastic captain for England and role model for women’s football. Her professionalism and conduct were the main reasons I decided to give her the captain’s armband. Despite much adversity through injury, she had a tremendous fighting spirit to work hard in order to play for both club and country and lead both to many great victories. She is a natural born leader who has been instrumental in helping to drive the game forward."
