Ellie Jade Brazil (born 10 January 1999) is an English footballer who plays as a forward for Tottenham Hotspur. She joined Birmingham City at the age of 16 and has represented England at under-15 to under-23 level.[2][3]

Club career[edit]

Before signing for Birmingham, Brazil played for the Derby County academy[4] and was a gold medal winner in the 800 metres at the 2015 English Schools' Athletics Championships.[5]

Fiorentina[edit]

In August 2017 Ellie signed for Fiorentina Women's FC of Serie A,[6] despite the offer of "an exciting fresh deal" from Birmingham City.[7] She scored her first goal for the team on 28 October 2017 against Sassuolo in the third match of the season.

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]

On 13 July 2018 former England manager Hope Powell signed Brazil for Brighton stating: "Ellie has already gained valuable experience playing in both England and Italy's top division."[8] She made her debut on the opening day of the season in the match against Bristol City,[9] and scored her first goal in a 3–1 League Cup win over London Bees.[10] She scored her first two league goals for the club in the 75th and 78th minutes of a 3–3 draw against Everton, to help Brighton secure their first point of the season.[11]

In November 2019 Brazil suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which ruled her out for at least the rest of the 2019–20 FA WSL season.[12] She returned to the matchday squad on 18 October 2020 for the game against Everton[13] and returned to the field for the last 31 minutes of the game against Tottenham on 6 December the same year.[14] A week later she played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

On 6 July 2022 it was announced that Brazil had signed a two-year deal to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. She made her competitive debut for the side as a 16th minute substitute during a 2–1 win against Leicester City on 18 September 2022. She made her first start on 22 October against Manchester City but picked up a second ACL injury that ruled her out for the rest of the season.[15]

International career[edit]

On 8 January 2019 Brazil was called up to Mo Marley's Under 21 national team training camp.[16] She made her debut for the side on 5 April 2019 during a 1–1 draw with France.

Personal life[edit]

Brazil is dating fellow women's footballer and former England youth teammate Emma Harries.[17][18]

Her father is former league footballer and manager Gary Brazil.[19]
