65. Kumi Yokoyama

Kumi Yokoyama stepped up to the big time this year when she joined 2015 Champions League winners FFC Frankfurt on an initial loan deal during the summer.

The move hasn’t gone too badly so far, Yokoyama is already chipping in with goals in a team not as well equipped as they were back in 2015, whilst her record for Japan remains impressive.

After being nominated as teenager for the prestigious FIFA Puskas Award, much was expected Yokoyama and now approaching the peak years of her career, the flying forward has the perfect chance to fulfill her talent on the European stage.

Lily Agg, FFC Frankfurt team mate says:

“Kumi is technically very good, she’s small but pops up from anywhere. She likes to drop deep and get on the ball from anywhere, she has a strong shot but she’s also calm finisher.

Adam Barlow, European women’s football writer says:

“Yokoyama has been a real star for FFC Frankfurt this season, with her tactical awareness and technical ability really standing out for FFC. She has 3 goals to her name so far this year and as she adopts to the league and the team around her she will only get better.”
