Karen Julia Carney MBE (born 1 August 1987) is an English former professional footballer who played as a winger for Chelsea and the England national team. Since making her senior international debut in 2005, Carney became the second most capped England player, making 144 appearances, including at the 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2017 European Championships and the World Cup in 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019. She also competed for the Great Britain team at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Twice named FA Young Player of the Year, Carney emerged at Birmingham City under the management of Marcus Bignot. After staying with the club for a further season following their financial collapse in 2005, she signed for Arsenal and experienced great success in 2006–07 – winning the UEFA Women's Cup and all three domestic trophies. Following two seasons in the US Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) with Chicago Red Stars, Carney rejoined Birmingham ahead of the 2011 FA WSL.
