Her 2019 so far:
Allen earned her second Westfield W-League Premiership in a superb season plying her trade for Melbourne Victory.
Much more familiar with the lower rungs of the ladder, Jeff Hopkins' side played brilliantly all season, with left-sided fullback Allen one of the standout performers as they lost just twice all season to finish top of the ladder.
The 25-year-old subsequently joined up with Ante Milicic for the Cup of Nations earlier this year, where she played 90 minutes in a 3-0 win against Argentina as Australia secured the inaugural trophy.
Having made her senior international debut as a 15-year-old in 2010, Allen has now been around the top level for nearly a decade. She heads into the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ entering the prime of her career with the mind of a seasoned veteran despite her relatively tender years.
