  • Daly scores her 22nd goal of WSL season
  • Equals the record for most in a single campaign
  • That was set by Arsenal's Miedema in 2017-18

WHAT HAPPENED? Daly opened the scoring for Villa against Arsenal on the final day of the 2022-23 WSL campaign - her 22nd goal in 22 league games this season. It equalled the record set by Miedema for the Gunners in the 2018-19 campaign.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 31-year-old's performances this season have been outstanding, with her picking up the Barclays Player of the Season award as well as the Golden Boot.

AND WHAT'S MORE: That form could well see Daly force her way into England's starting XI for the 2023 Women's World Cup, with Sarina Wiegman surely to have been given food for thought.
