76. Erin Cuthbert
It’s been a really, really good year for one of Scotland’s most promising talents. It couldn’t have started any better as her two goals saw Chelsea come from behind to beat Arsenal. Cuthbert continued to score big goals as she found the net in the Champions League at home to PSG before a superb half-volley saw her do what many don’t, score away at Lyon. She was in fine form for her country too, scoring in several World Cup warm-up games before finding the net in France in a thriller against Argentina. A driving force from midfield with bags of energy and tenacity, Cuthbert has plenty more to give but at just 21 there’s plenty of time for the rest of her talent to show itself.
Shelley Kerr, Scotland head coach:
“Erin is Scotland’s brightest young talent and is only at the start of her journey. She epitomises everything coaches look for in a footballer. She’s tenacious, intelligent, skilful and has the ability to change the dynamic in any game. For someone so young, her football intelligence is advanced beyond her years. Erin has real passion representing her club and country and every time she’s on the pitch she wants to win and entertain.”
