Houston Dash forward Ebony Salmon got a new lease on life when her former team Racing Louisville FC traded her away. Salmon making the most of her moments in the spotlight has earned a call from the England Women's National Team.
It didn't take long for the change of scenery and continuing hard work to pay off for the 21 year old forward. Lionesses head h Sarina Wiegman gets a young international in Salmon who has scored eight goals in as many games since arriving in Houston. Salmon opened her scoring run with a hat trick in interim head coach Juan Carlos Amoros first match. At one point she scored in three consecutive games and has three multi-goal games for the Dash. The Birmingham, England native has scored more goals then seven NWSL teams since July 16th. Salmon has scored in five of her last six matches and has two multi-goal games to her credit.
It's been more than a year since her last call in January of 2021 but she never doubted the call would come again. The retirement of Ellen White and Jill Scott opened the door for the young forward. Salmon, after being captain of the U-17 English team and notching a hat trick against Italy, made her senior debut when she subbed on for former Dash forward Rachel Daly in January of 2021against Northern Ireland. With the departures of Scott and White, an impressionable outing in World Cup qualifiers against Austria on September 3rd and against Luxembourg on September 6th could make Salmon a fixture for year's to come for the Lionesses.
