After leaving 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam at the end of 2017, Kellond-Knight was hoping to join the Reign FC in the NWSL, however a discovery claim by the North Carolina Courage prevented her from joining the Reign. [5] In April 2018, she signed a short-term deal with Hammarby in the Damallsvenskan. In June she extended her contract through the end of the season. [6]

Kellond-Knight signed with Melbourne City for the 2018–19 W-League season. [7]

Reign FC announced on September 24, 2018, that Kellond-Knight had signed with them for the 2019 NWSL season. [8]

In November 2022, Kellond-Knight returned to Australia, joining reigning champions Melbourne Victory. [11]

International career

For her performances at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup and 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, Kellond-Knight was named as part of the All Star Teams for both tournaments. [12]

During a match against Brazil in the 2016 Olympics, a moment of Kellond-Knight and her teammate Lisa De Vanna went viral when during a short break, De Vanna absentmindedly tried to drink from the wrong end of a water bottle, prompting Kellond-Knight to quickly flip it in her hand.

On October 9, 2018, Kellond-Knight earned her 100th cap for Australia in a friendly against England, which ended in a 1–1 draw. [13]

At the 2019 Women's World Cup, she scored a goal directly from a corner kick in the Round of 16 match against Norway. [14]

Kellond-Knight was selected for the Australian women's football Matildas soccer team which qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Matildas advanced to the quarter-finals with one victory and a draw in the group play. In the quarter-finals they beat Great Britain 4-3 after extra time. However, they lost 1–0 to Sweden in the semi-final and were then beaten 4–3 in the bronze medal playoff by USA. [15] Full details.
