Former England captain Faye White is among 10 players to be inducted into the National Football Museum's Hall of Fame this October.
John Barnes, Stuart Pearce and Sky Sports football pundit Gary Neville will be alongside White when they are recognised in a special ceremony in Manchester.
To be eligible for a place in the Hall of Fame, players must be over the age of 30, have finished their career, and have played or managed in England for at least five years.
White announced her retirement from international football in April 2012 after announcing that she was expecting her first child.
She made her England debut against Scotland in 1997 and went on to gain 90 caps, scoring 11 goals in the process.
White became England skipper in 2002 and led the team in the 2005 and 2009 European Championships and the 2007 and 2011 World Cups.
Faye was also a key part of a very successful Arsenal team and was named Player of the Season in 1997 shortly after her England call-up.
White won over 30 trophies during her time at the Londoners, including 11 league titles, nine FA Cups, eight League Cups and one UEFA Cup.
In 2006, Faye was recognised in the New Year’s Honours List with an MBE.
In March 2013, just under a year after stepping away from international football, White announced her retirement from domestic football after struggling with knee injuries.
Retirement hasn’t halted Faye’s footballing career though, as she is now responsible for marketing at Arsenal Ladies as well as coaching the ladies first team at the University of Hertfordshire.
The 37-year-old is also in the process of completing her UEFA B Licence coaching qualification.
