96: Yuki Nagasato
Nagasato only found the net four times for the Chicago Red Stars during the American domestic season and those all came during a red-hot five-game scoring streak. But her combination and link-up play with Sam Kerr left a lasting impression, with seven assists providing ample evidence of her creative ability. She has decided to spend the off-season playing for Brisbane Roar in the W-League before her partnership with Kerr reunites for another assault on the NWSL next year.
Craig Harrington, Chicago Red Stars assistant manager:
“Yuki has real imagination when it comes to spotting a devastating pass or threading a ball through crowding defenders. Often games are a Yuki appreciation highlight reel.”
