The Breakers announced their second significant international signing of the off season on Wednesday, New Zealand striker Rosie White. The arrival of White in Boston will reunite her with head coach Matt Beard for whom she played for at the start of her two-season run at Liverpool.

“I am really excited to be signing with the Boston Breakers,” White said. “It is an amazing opportunity and a new adventure and challenge for me. I can’t wait for it to begin.”

White, 23, is already a veteran of two World Cups and has been capped 79 times by New Zealand. She has 14 goals for the full international team. White was a fixture in the Football Ferns’ youth system, featuring in a U-17 World Cup and a pair of U-20 World Cups. In 33 appearances at Liverpool, White collected four goals.

“Rosie of course is a player who I worked with for a few months in my last season at Liverpool. She is technically a gifted soccer player who can play in numerous positions in the front three or in midfield,” Beard said. “On top of that, she is a great person and brings international experience with the New Zealand national team.”

White joins Emile Haavi who signed with the Breakers last month. The club also acquired Amanda Da Costa in a trade with the Red Stars.
