74. Mapi Leon
Tough tackling Spanish defender Mapi Leon is another new entry this year, but not before time. Mapi did a superb job of marshalling both the Barcelona and Spain defences in 2019, helping the former to clean sheets in both Champions League semi-finals as they reached the final for the first time. Barcelona are already on top in 2019 and a thumping 6-1 win over Atletico was a statement of intent, but for Leon it’s about growing as a player all the time. She’s picked up five bookings this year and a red card against Juventus but her no nonsense approach has seen her become a top centre-back. She started all four of Spain’s World Cup games and it’s unlikely to be the last time we see Leon on the biggest stages whether it be for club or country.
