About our Sam Kerr news

Latest news on Sam Kerr, the Australian women's football striker, captain of the Matildas, multiple NWSL & FA WSL Golden Boot winner, now starring for Chelsea FC Women in the UK.

Sam Kerr is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in women's football. Born in East Fremantle, Australia in 1993, she has played for clubs in Australia, the United States, and England, and has captained the Australian national team (the Matildas) since 2019. Kerr holds the all-time goal scoring records for the Australian national team, the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) in the US, and is the only female footballer to have won the Golden Boot in three different leagues on three continents.

Recent headlines have focused on Kerr's stellar performances for Chelsea in the FA Women's Super League, where she won back-to-back Golden Boot awards in 2020-21 and 2021-22, as well as her efforts in leading the Matildas to a historic 4th place finish at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. However, Kerr suffered a serious ACL injury in January 2024 during a Chelsea training camp, ruling her out for the remainder of the 2023-24 season. She also faced controversy in early 2024 when charged with racially aggravated harassment against a police officer in the UK, which she denied and is contesting.

Off the pitch, Kerr is known for her laid-back, humble personality and her advocacy for women's sports and LGBTQ+ rights. She has been in a relationship with American footballer Kristie Mewis since 2021. Kerr was named the 2018 Young Australian of the Year and is seen as an iconic figure and role model, especially for young female athletes in Australia.

From her debut for the Australian national team at age 15 in 2009 to her record-breaking professional club career, Sam Kerr has been a trailblazer in women's football for over a decade. She has played in three World Cups (2011, 2015, 2019) and two Olympics (2016, 2021) for Australia so far. Her global stardom skyrocketed after her standout performances in the 2019 World Cup, where she became the first Australian player to score a hat trick at the tournament.

Despite injury setbacks and personal challenges, Sam Kerr remains one of the most exciting and impactful players in women's football today. Our NewsNow feed keeps you updated with all the latest news, stats and highlights of her performances for club and country, as well as off-field stories and interviews, from trusted sources around the world.
