FORMER England full-back Rachel Unitt is now a hero firefighter.
The retired defender won 102 caps for the Lionesses and starred at two Women's World Cups.
After hanging up her boots in 2020, though, Unitt turned to a career as a firefighter with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue.
The role has even seen her work alongside fellow ex-England star Michelle Hickmott.
Unitt's new job did not stop her revelling in last summer's Euros triumph.
England won their first major trophy by beating Germany in the final on home soil.

Unitt, who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2017, played at five major tournaments for England.
Those included both the 2007 and 2011 World Cups as well as the Euros in 2009, when England reached the final.
