City on Christiansen:
Isobel Christiansen joined City in February 2014 from fellow FA WSL outfit, Birmingham. The youngster, who was born in Macclesfield, began her career at youth level with Manchester United before joining Everton.
After breaking into the Toffees’ first-team, she went on to make her Champions League debut for the Merseyside outfit during her one-year stint at the club.
In 2010, Christiansen joined FA Women’s Super League side Birmingham. She became an integral part of their team, securing an FA Cup winners’ medal in 2012 and accruing even more Champions League appearances along the way.
In addition to her domestic exploits, the forward can also boast seven years’ worth of international experience, having made her England debut at under-15s level and progressing through the ranks to the under-23s squad.
Alongside new teammate Toni Duggan, Christiansen formed part of the England side that won the UEFA Women's U-19 Championship in 2009 and received a silver medal the following year.Earlier this year, she was selected in the senior squad for the first time for the Three Lions’ training camp in La Manga.
She has also participated in the 2008 under-17 and 2010 under-20 World Cups and helped Great Britain to win a gold medal in the 2013 Summer Universiade in Russia.
The youngster enjoyed a year to remember in 2014, netting the winning goal to make history for City Women in the Continental Cup final.
Christiansen rose high in the penalty area to head in Krystle Johnston's pin-point cross to open the scoring at Adams Park and gift the Blues a first piece of silverware.
