Eniola Aluko

Member Since 2019

Eniola Aluko was the 135th member of Common Goal and made the announcement that she was joining the movement at Web Summit 2019 alongside Common Goal Mentor Eric Cantona – one of her childhood heroes.

Eniola is now retired but enjoyed a hugely successful career, with more than 100 caps for England. She most recently played for Juventus where she won the league and cup double before joining Aston Villa Women as a Sporting Director.

"In football we can’t achieve anything alone, and the same goes for social change - it’s a team game. Only together can we change the world. Now is the time for us all to unite behind a shared vision for football and show how together we can shape the future of the world"

She is a strong exponent of the collective movement at Common Goal and wants to use her position within the game to promote social good. 

Eniola recognises the power of being a footballer and hopes her platform and influence can help raise awareness for, and drive change in, a range of social issues.

She is a regular columnist for the Guardian Newspaper and one of Britain’s leading football voices.
