Rosemary Eleanor Florence "Rosie" White (born 6 June 1993), is a female football player from New Zealand. She plays in the striker position for Boston Breakers and is a member of the New Zealand women's national football team, and was a member of the Under-17 and Under-20 squads.[4]

Club career[edit]

In July 2015 White signed for English FA WSL champions Liverpool Ladies. Liverpool manager Matt Beard expected White to increase the team's attacking options.[5] In 2015 Liverpool slumped to a seventh-place finish, but White was handed a new contract in November 2015.[6]

On 9 November 2016, she signed with the Boston Breakers of the NWSL.[7]

International career[edit]

White achieved a unique double by scoring a hat-trick against Colombia in the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup[8] and a second against Chile in the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup[9] two weeks later. In 2010, she represented New Zealand at the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Germany, appearing in all three group games.[10]

White made her senior Football Ferns debut as a substitute in a 0–6 loss to China PR on 10 January 2009.[11][12] Having been a prolific scorer for the Under-17 and Under-20 teams, White remained goalless for the Football Ferns until her 14th appearance when she scored in a 14–0 win over Vanuatu on 29 September 2010.[11]

She played in two matches out of New Zealand's three in each of FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany 2011 and Canada 2015.[13]
