Fara Williams (40 goals)

Fara Williams is the joint 4th highest goal scorer of all time, and also holds the achievement of the most capped player with 172 caps over her 18-year career for England.

Williams made her England debut in 2001, meaning that Everton’s central midfielder has played across four European Championships and three World Cups for England, quite the resume. She will no doubt go down as one of the greats in women’s football and is the only midfielder on this list.

Karen Walker (40 goals)

Next up and joint 4th place is Karen Walker, the centre forward played 20 years for the Doncaster Belles, and during her 83 appearances for England managed to find the back of the net 40 times.

Walker is well known for her performances in the 1995 World Cup in Sweden, scoring a goal and helping England reach the quarter finals where they were knockout out by Germany. How times change.

Kerry Davis (44 goals)

Third in the top five is Kerry Davis, she has the highest goals per match ratio with 0.54, having netted 44 goals in just 82 caps. She is also the oldest player in the rankings, aged 59. During her career she played with many top-level teams including Napoli and Liverpool Ladies.

As well as a thriving club career, she represented England in the inaugural 1984 UEFA Championships Final and at England’s first FIFA World Cup appearance in 1995, making her a true veteran and another England legend.

Kelly Smith (46 goals)

Kelly Smith was the top-scoring woman of all time until she was dethroned by Ellen White in 2021. However, it takes nothing away from her contribution to the sport, having scored 46 goals in 117 caps, as well as an even better goal-scoring record for her club, Arsenal, where she played for three separate stints.

Upon her return to the club in 2005, she appeared in 66 Premier League games and scored 73 goals and many more across a variety of competitions, cementing her as one of the most dangerous forwards England has ever produced.

Ellen White (52 goals)

Ellen White became the top goal scorer of all time following her hat trick against Latvia in 2021, where the Lionesses won 20-0, a record-breaking number of goals for an English national team.

With 52 goals in just 113 caps, her name will go down in the history books as England’s top goal scorer and arguably the best forward of all time. With an active career ahead of her, she will no doubt be looking to extend this record and leave her competition in the dust.
