Since her move to the States, Ebony Salmon has been tearing up football pitches and making defences squirm with the Houston Dash. Domestically, the centre forward is in illustrious form and will hoping to begin to carry this over to the international stage.
Salmon is an out and out no. 9 with that instinctive eye to pounce on any mistake or opening an opponent might leave. As well as being a constant threat in the box, Salmon is also willing to track back to support by ‘defending from the front’. More often than not makes good on the service provided and is a proven clinical finisher. With Ellen White’s retirement, Wiegman is in need of rotational options upfront to balance out Alessia Russo’s workload and Ebony Salmon readily fits the bill here.
