Mayfair nights out and glam holidays: Inside Lioness Alessia Russo’s life off the pitch

I simply must go clubbing with this woman

Alessia Russo has had an unbelievable Women’s World Cup, scoring the winning goal against Colombia which took us to the semi-final game against Australia today. She was named Manchester United Women’s Player of the Year last season and was part of the history-making team which won England the Women’s Euros in 2022. Simply put, she’s a star.

And Alessia has been living her best life off the pitch as well as on it. So, in case you’re intrigued by her life away from the Women’s World Cup tournament, here’s everything you need to know about her Mayfair nights out, glam holidays and friendship with Ella Toone:

She started playing for England in February 2020 and is 24-years-old

Alessia started playing for England in February 2020 in the SheBelieves Cup in the US. When she’s not playing for England, she’s part of the Arsenal Women’s Super League after transferring from her long-term club, Manchester United, in July.

She’s from grew up in Maidstone, Kent and has Italian heritage

Alessia grew up in Maidstone in Kent but has Italian heritage as her grandfather moved over to the UK from Sicily in the ’50s. Her grandad was a supporter of Manchester United and passed his love for the team onto Alessia. She played for Man U’s women’s team from 2020-2023.

She’s super close with her family and was always better than her brothers at football

Alessia has two brothers, Luca and Giorgio, and learnt to play football alongside them and their dad, Mario, growing up. Mario always encouraged Alessia’s football career and when he saw potential in her moved her from the local girls team to a boys team, which he told Our Game Mag got them “strange looks” from other parents. Iconic.

She absolutely loves a boujee night out in London

When she’s not on the pitch or training, Alessia shares loads of pics from boujee nights out in Mayfair, London. She loves sushi dinners, cocktails, flower walls and stilettos— seriously, I need to go clubbing with her asap.

She’s best friends with her team mate Ella Toone and they’re always going viral on TikTok

After playing alongside each other for England and Man United, Alessia and her team mate Ella Toone are best friends and call each other “Less” and “Toony”. Clips of them having the best time in Australia are constantly going viral on TikTok – playing darts, hanging out – and beating rival nations to get to the World Cup semis.

She always looks unreal at red carpet events

Alessia has one of the best red carpet wardrobes of the England team and always looks seriously glam at awards nights. “Special few days ❤️❤️❤️,” she wrote of the BBC Sports Personality of the year awards back in December as she shared pics from the photo call.

She keeps her love life super private and it’s unknown if she’s in a relationship

Alessia hasn’t ever posted about a relationship on her Instagram and keeps her love life totally out of the public eye, which is totally fair enough.


What’s Alessia Russo’s Instagram?

Alessia has 576k followers on Instagram and you can follow her @alessiarusso99 But she’s not the only Lioness with a vibey Instagram account. You can find all of her team mate’s profiles, including Chloe Kelly, Ella Toone, Mary Earps and Alex Greenwood, here.
