Annalie Antonia Longo (born 1 July 1991) is a female association football player who represents New Zealand at international level.[5] She played for Sydney FC in the Australian W-League.


Longo made her full Football Ferns debut in a 0-3 loss to China PR on 14 November 2006, becoming New Zealand's youngest senior football international,[6] and represented New Zealand at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup finals in China,[7] where they lost to Brazil 0-5, Denmark (0-2) and China PR (0-2). Longo is the second youngest player to represent any country at a senior FIFA World Cup.[6]

Longo also represented New Zealand at the 2006 Women's U-20 World Cup finals where she played in all three games.

She scored New Zealand's first goal at the 2008 inaugural FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup although they were effectively eliminated from contention in the 1-2 loss to Denmark, having previously lost 0-1 to Canada in the opening game.[8]

Longo was again included in the U-20 squad for the 2008 Women's U-20 World Cup finals to be played in Chile, featuring in 2 of their three group games.[9] In 2010 she represented New Zealand at a third Under-20 World Cup, this time in Germany, appearing in all three group games.[10]

She played one of New Zealand's three matches in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany and all three matches of her country at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.[11]


She was a student at Auckland's Epsom Girls' Grammar School.

In an interview Longo gave in November 2014, she said she lives in Kaiapoi but also spends half of her week in Auckland for national trainings.[12] While in Kaiapoi, she plays for Mainland Pride and then spends the rest of her time coaching at the Grasshopper Soccer programme - a non-competitive programme for kids aged 2-10 years, where the focus is on fun and skill development.[13] She said that she enjoyed working with young children and enjoyed watching them develop.[14]
