Sue Smith, the England Women's football team star, has just taken delivery of the MG TF sports car.
Sue is renowned for her ever-changing hair styles and colours said “We want to succeed where our men have failed since 1966 and bring the World Cup home.
"I am thrilled that MG Motor UK recognises that the women's game is now just as thrilling, especially at international level, as the men's game and are sponsoring me with this fantastic sports car.
"There was glorious sunshine when I picked the car up at the MG Birmingham factory and I can't wait to drive it - with the top up or down."
Sue appeared alongside Wayne Rooney in his three-part Sky 1 show 'Street Striker'.
Sue Smith made her senior debut at the tender age of 14, playing for Rovers Ladies. She received her first England cap when she was just 17.
Last month Sue scored both goals in a 2-0 England win over South Korea.
Sue has represented England in World Cup Quarter finals, the European Championship final and been a winner in the annual invitational Cyprus Cup that England lifted in 2009.
She has been voted the player's 'Player of the Year' (surely, the prize that every sports person covets the most as it is awarded by their peers), FA International Player of the year (twice) and has also been picked in a representative world XI who played against the then world champions the USA in the San Jose stadium.
In addition to her fantastic achievements on the pitch, Sue has been recognised for her work coaching and supporting young players and the women's game in the community. In 2009, Sue was awarded an honorary masters degree for services to football and the community.
Sue will use the bright silver 1.8-litre MG TF to travel to matches, training sessions and her many coaching and public engagements.Published 11 April 2011
