Tell us 3 things you like to do outside of football?

I kind of obsess a lot about football because I love the game so much and it takes up a lot of my time and I want to be up there with the best for my team…so that’s a tough question. I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and dog, travelling the world and reading books (both fiction and non-fiction).
