82. Tessa Wullaert

Still yet to reach her peak years, the amount of rotation at Wolfsburg means Tessa Wullaert may still be one of the most under-appreciated players in Europe.

Wullaert already has four goals in the Champions League this season as Wolfsburg reached the quarter-finals last month, but her role with the Bundesliga winners is perhaps holding her back from greater things.

Wullaert scored against holders and eventual champions Netherlands at Euro 2017, although there was much conjecture as to whether or not she meant it!

Still just 24, Wullaert has so much more to give but is already a top centre forward.

Stephan Lerch, Wolfsburg manager says:

“Tessa is an extremely good goal scorer, she’s fast and has a good understanding of the game. I should also highlight she has an extremely positive will to win and that willpower helps us and her as a player.”

Pernille Harder, Wolfsburg team mate says:

“Tessa has great technique and she’s a great finisher. She sees and reads the game so well, a player who is capable of making a lot of assists and also a lot of beautiful goals.”

Ives Serneels, Belgium national team head coach says:

“It was great for Tessa to play at her first Euro’s this year, she assisted a goal for us and scored one too. It’s good that our players know that if you work for something, you can reach it.

“She’s technical and very strong too, she has a good view of what’s going on on the field all the time. Tessa is strong with both feet, she’s got pace and she’s worked very hard this year.”

Janice Cayman, Belgium team mate says:

“Tessa is a talented forward and she is so important of our Belgian national team. She has also proven her value for her club team Wolfsburg. She is technically a strong player and she also has a good ‘killer instinct’ in front of the goal.”
