Top 100 Players of 2017

Top 100 Players of 2017

It has been another eventful and historic year in the world of women’s football, both on and off the pitch! Below is a list I have created featuring the Top 100 Players who stood out for me over the last twelve months on both the domestic and international stage. It was not an easy task and I am sure you will not agree with me on all named players and ranking. For this reason I would love to read your feedback in social medias or leave your comments below.

I would like to give thanks to all friends who help me with his list, especially Gina, Karl, Gui and Manu. I hope you enjoy!
