Kelly Smith was a famous English soccer (football) forward. Recently, she retired. She scored 46 goals for her country, and became Britain’s first professional female soccer player when she moved to the American side in 1999.

Smith is retiring because she thinks that it is the right time to step down. She has reached a professional soccer level and is proud of what she has accomplished. She had a few injuries, and at the age of thirty-eight, Kelly feels like her body is telling her to stop.

Preanka’s thoughts: Kelly Smith has made her country proud. If she wants to retire, she should go for it. It is amazing that she is only 38 and has done so much.
