The best of women at football.
She like all of us
has her wounds
but so L5 as a human
that she spills.
She talks freely yo the Guardian
about her adjustments she had to make
to become the greatest of English footballers.
"It was difficult adjusting to a new culture
because I was so young, and very introverted.
At uni, because I was so uncomfortable with myself,
I started drinking quite a lot with my friends.
But it wasn't until the first major injury
that I took it a new level."
Did she drink alone?
"Yeah," Smith says though a hurt little laugh.
"i was at a really low point
and didn't know which way to turn.
I had broken my leg
and couldn't work.
None of my friends were around
and I wasn't comfortable in my own skin.
I used the drink to prop me up"
