Carpenter off to conquer the world with Lyon

Melbourne City and Matildas superstar Ellie Carpenter has secured a dream move to women’s footballing powerhouse, Olympique Lyonnais.

It was confirmed this morning that the 20-year-old would be departing her NWSL parent club Portland Thorns after two seasons, with Australia’s undoubted shooting star now joining the most dominant team in world football – men’s or women’s.
