England & Manchester City defender Steph Houghton shares her story of how she became a Lioness.

The 29-year-old centre-back has been England's 'rock at the back' ever since her 2007 debut. Domestic wise, she began her career 15 years ago at Sunderland Women. Five years later she moved to Leeds United Ladies. In 2010 she ended up at Arsenal and then in 2014 she made her lifelong dream come true when she moved to Manchester City.

Steph Houghton's Football Story | How I started



Steph says she and her England team-mates are looking forward to kicking off their UEFA Woman's Euro 2017 Group D campaign against Scotland on Wednesday.

Talking to the FA.com Steph said...

'It's Scotland's first Euros and it's a derby game at that.

'We are the favourites to win the game so the pressure is on. But it's a pressure we know we can handle.

'Hopefully we can let our football do the talking and make sure we play the way we have been doing over the last couple of years.'
