53. Barbara Bonansea
Bonansea has always been one of the most gifted players in Europe and it’s just a shame it’s taken until she’s 28 for people to see it on the world stage. While Bonansea had a huge effect on another stellar domestic year for Juventus, it was at the World Cup during the summer where people were treated to what the forward is truly capable of. 6 goals in quick succession for Juventus sent her into the tournament in good form and two goals in Italy’s first game against one of the favourites in Australia to win from behind really announced her to the world. She was influential as underdogs Italy marched all the way to the quarter-finals, eventually losing to would be finalists the Netherlands.
