Tessa Wullaert (born 19 March 1993) is a Belgian football forward currently playing for Manchester City W.F.C. in the English FA WSL and the Belgian national team.[1]

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Wullaert's first team was SV Zulte Waregem in the Belgian First Division, where she played from 2008 to 2012.[2] For the 2012–13 season, when a new joint league between Belgium and the Netherlands called BeNe League was created, she moved to RSC Anderlecht, with which she won the Belgian Cup. She left after one year at the club and signed for Standard Liège, scoring 16 league goals during the 2013–14 season and winning the Belgian Cup again. On her second season (2014–15) playing for Standard, she won the BeNe League top scorer award with 18 goals helping the club to win the title.[3]

In May 2015 she moved to VfL Wolfsburg.[4]

International career[edit]

Wullaert represented Belgium at the 2011 UEFA Women's U-19 Championship[5] and in the same year made her debut for the senior national team.[6][7] After only a few years, she achieved the record for highest number of international goals by a Belgian female football player: she caught up with team captain Aline Zeler in November 2015 and overtook her in March 2016.
