Elise Kellond-Knight celebrates her 27th birthday today. In honour of her, here are five things you might not know about the German-based Westfield Matildas midfielder.
- Her nickname is KK - original eh?
- She was born and bred on the Gold Coast, and loves to surf.
- She made her Matildas debut six days before her 17th birthday, helping Australia to an 8-1 thumping of Hong Kong.
- She was named in the All Star Team after both the 2011 and 2015 FIFA Women's World Cups.
- When asked recently by German media what her preferred super-power would be, KK chose invisibility!
Happy birthday Elise!
