Where is Robert Earnshaw now?

A much travelled striker who scored goals at every club he played for, Robert Earnshaw retired from playing in January 2016 after two years playing across the Atlantic in the MLS for Toronto FC, Chicago Fire and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

He has the unique record of being the only player to have scored a hat-trick in all four top flight divisions in England as well as the League Cup, FA Cup and also for his national side, Wales.

He ended his professional playing career with 183 goals scored in 466 appearances.

Although Earnshaw was born in Zambia he represented the Wales national team on the international stage and went onto win 59 senior caps scoring 16 goals.

Upon retiring from playing Earnshaw made the move into coaching and stayed on at Vancouver Whitecaps where he worked as head coach of the under-15’s side as well as forwards coach for the senior first team.

In April 2018, he left to join the newly-formed Fresno FC as an assistant coach but had to leave the following November after the owners failed to secure a soccer specific stadium.

Away from coaching, Earnshaw has also worked as a pundit for various broadcasters such as Sky Sports, beIN Sports, TSN and talkSPORT normally covering games featuring one of his former sides.
