87: Sherida Spitse
After scoring what was effectively the clincher in the Euro 2017 final, Spitse was always going to be hard pressed to enjoy a comparable year this time. A move to Valerenga has served her well, though, and her quality from midfield was confirmed by the nine goals she scored in the Norwegian league. She also produced four more for the Netherlands in World Cup qualifying before scoring the opener in the vital play-off against Switzerland, once more leading her team to a major tournament.
Monica Knudsen, Valerenga manager:
“Sherida is a top quality player with a professional approach towards training and games. She became the top scorer of the team and some of her goals were absolutely stunning. She is also an important player for Holland and scored an amazing free-kick goal that sent them 1-0 up against Switzerland in the playoff final for qualifying to the World Cup.”
