47: Almuth Schult
The Germany No 1 kept 10 clean sheets in 11 Frauen Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg during the second half of the 2017-18 season, including nine in a row. The only goals Schult conceded in that run came against Bayern Munich when the league was already won. She also popped up with a surprise assist for Pernille Harder in the Champions League final but her finest moment came when she saved two penalties in the shootout of the German Cup final to help Wolfsburg take the trophy. Schult also maintained her status as Germany’s No 1 throughout the year.
Stephan Lerch, VfL Wolfsburg manager:
“Almuth is very safe in goal. Her reflexes and control of the penalty area are very strong aspects of her game. She is one of our leading players and when the high balls come in she takes them safely.”
