Eni Aluko scores first goals since parliamentary committee appearance

Speaking to a UK parliamentary committee, former England footballer Eni Aluko says that FA chief exec Martin Glenn asked her to write 'a statement saying the FA were not institutionally racist' in order to receive the 2nd part of her financial settlement

Eni Aluko scored twice in her first match since appearing before a parliamentary committee hearing into the Football Association's handling of her complaints against former England Women boss Mark Sampson.

Aluko's goals came as Women's Super League leaders Chelsea thrashed bottom side Yeovil 6-0 at home.

Eleven days on from her appearance before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee, Aluko scored the second and sixth goals in a win that extended Chelsea's 100 percent start in the league.

She told the BBC: "It was really great, we wanted it to be a professional, clinical, decisive performance, and keep a clean sheet.

"We know in the past this league has gone down to goal difference, so it's really important that we keep the goals against down and the goals for high, so I'm really pleased to have contributed to that.

"This team has got a lot of goals in it, and I'm happy to be part of that."

Earlier this month, the FA admitted that Sampson made "discriminatory remarks" to two England players, and offered an official apology.

Sampson was sacked last month for historical safeguarding issues relating to a previous job at Bristol Academy.

English football's governing body apologised to Aluko and her fellow Chelsea player Drew Spence.
