Rachel Louise Corsie (born August 17, 1989 in Aberdeen ) is a Scottish national soccer player . Since September 2017 she has been the captain of the Scottish national football team . She has been playing for Utah Royals FC in the National Women's Soccer League since 2018 .



Corsie moved from Aberdeen LFC to the top Scottish club Glasgow City LFC in the summer of 2008 . With this she won national titles in series, including the national triple of championship, club and league cup in 2009, 2012 and 2013 . For the 2014 season of the FA WSL Corsie joined the Notts County LFC , with whom she provided the best defense in the league (only eight goals conceded in 14 games of the season), but still only landed in sixth place in the table. For the 2015 season she moved to Seattle Reign FC in the NWSL , where her compatriot Kim Little was already under contract. She has been playing for Utah Royals FC since 2018 , but moved to Australia after the end of the 2018 season to play for Canberra United in the W-League . She received the captain's armband there and was used in eleven of twelve games, but ended the season in penultimate place. Then she returned to Sandy .

National team

Corsie took part with the U-19 team in the second qualifying round for the 2007 U-19 European Football Championship for women in April 2017 . At a tournament in Germany , however, they failed to defending champion Germany . In September they made a new attempt and were able to qualify in the first round at a tournament in Ukraine together with the hosts for the second round. She scored her first international goal in a 2-2 draw against Ukraine. In the second round in April 2008 in Switzerland there was again a 2-2 win against the hosts, where she - now as captain - also scored a goal, which helped ensure that the Scottish women qualified for the finals. She was also the captain of the finals in France , but her team lost all games and had the worst goal difference with 2:12. They beat their own negative record of 2:11 from 2005, but were then replaced by Belarus in the following year, who had a goal difference of 1:16 at the home European championships. Her time as a junior national player ended with her departure.

On March 5, 2009, she had her first appearance in the senior national team in the first group game of the Cyprus Cup 2009 . In the 2-0 defeat against France , she was in the starting line-up and played until the end. The Scottish women also lost the other two group games, but were able to win the game for 7th place against Russia 2-1. Corsie didn't miss a minute of the tournament and was a regular from then on. She only missed one game in two years. On October 15, 2009, she scored her first goal for the senior team in a 3-0 win over Northern Ireland . At the Cyprus Cup in 2011 , she was the captain of her team in the second group match against England , who won 2-0 for the first time since 1977 against their southern neighbor - which they did not succeed afterwards. The Scottish women reached the game for third place for the first time, but lost it against France 3-0. After the Cyprus Cup, she only missed six games by the end of 2012. In 2013 she was not used in the first nine games, but did not play any games for her club during this time. After that, she only missed four games by the end of 2016, including the last decisive game in qualifying for the 2017 European Championship , in which the Scottish women were able to qualify for the European Championship finals for the first time. In January 2019 she was used in the two test matches against Denmark in Cyprus , for the Cyprus Cup 2017 she was nominated but not used due to an injury.

But she was then nominated for the European Championship finals . At the EM, they met England in their first game and lost 6-0. Corsie was replaced in the 76th minute when the score was 0: 4. In the other two group games, she played over 90 minutes each. After a 1: 2 against Portugal , they won against Spain 1: 0. Since Portugal and Spain also lost to England, but the Spaniards won 2-0 against Portugal, the Scottish women were eliminated as third.

After the European Championship, Gemma Fay , captain and record national player for the Scottish women, ended her career. Corsie was then appointed captain by the new national coach Shelley Kerr .

In qualifying for the 2019 World Cup , she was one of the seven Scottish women who played all eight games without missing a minute. In the third to last qualifying game on June 12, 2018, she made her 100th international match in a 3-2 win against Poland . The Scottish women qualified for the first time for the World Cup, where they will meet England in the first game, as in the European Championship.

On May 15, 2019 she was nominated for the World Cup . At the World Cup she was used in the three group matches after which the Scottish women were eliminated.
