42. Carli Lloyd
There’s a fair argument to be made that Lloyd is actually playing better this year than in 2015 when her hat-trick won the USA the World Cup. While she had to play a squad role in France this time around and has made it clear she wants to remain a big part of the team, Lloyd has surely done enough this year to convince her new head coach she has plenty to give. Lloyd found the net eight times for a Sky Blue FC side still struggling for form and while she wasn’t always a starter for the USA, she found the net 16 times throughout the year for her country, three of them coming at the World Cup while finding the net in six of her last seven international games. Lloyd is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
