Whether Dan Carter is hitting the back of the net on the pitch or achieving her ambitions off it, goals have always been the forward’s main priority.
The 22-year-old is set to feature for Arsenal Ladies in their final Continental Cup group-stage game at Millwall Lionesses on Sunday, and a second trip to the Den in 2015 will bring back fond memories of the fixture.
Carter scored a hat-trick in the Gunners’ 7-0 FA Cup win in March, and she is hoping to help Arsenal continue their 100 per cent record in the Continental Cup with another impressive performance.
"Personally I want to break into the England senior team whether it be this year or next year"
“I want to score as many goals as possible,” the England Under-23 international told Arsenal.com. “Whether it is six goals or one, I’m happy either way.
“It was good to score a hat-trick at the beginning of the season. It’s a good way to up your confidence whether it’s a rival or Manchester City, it’s good to get on the scoresheet.”
Carter is now in her sixth season with Arsenal since joining from Leyton Orient and the forward believes a strong end to the 2015 season could put her in contention for an England call-up.
“Overall it’s been good,” she said. “Obviously there are the highs and lows. I have been here when Arsenal are the greatest and I have been here when there was a change in the women’s game, so it’s exciting for a neutral.
“Personally I want to break into the England senior team whether it be this year or next year. Hopefully in the near future I can do that.”
