78: Guro Reiten

Reiten rockets into the charts and it would be no surprise to see the 24-year-old’s eye-catching rise continue. A dominant year for LSK in Norway brought an incredible 21 league goals, including a four-goal haul against Trondheim, and she staked an early claim for goal of the season with an effort from the halfway line. She also imposed herself on the Norwegian national team, scoring in a World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, and will be one of the young players to watch next year after they secured safe passage to France 2019.

Hege Riise, LSK manager:

“Guro has been the Toppserien’s leading goal scorer in Norway for the past two seasons. This is not a coincidence. She has an exceptional understanding of the game, and the ability to create chances both on her own and through combinations with her team-mates. Guro is a quick thinker with a great left-foot. She is also now a key-player for the national team, and definitely contributed to the national team success in qualifying to the World Cup next year.”

Martin Sjogren, Norway head coach:

“Guro has been outstanding in the domestic league and also been taking steps forward at international level with us in Norway. She has a great ability to create chances and score goals with a magical left foot. I think she will develop even more during next season.”
