79. Veronica Boquete
There was plenty of excitement around when ‘Vero’ returned to the NWSL at the start of the year with the Utah Royals. With her international career behind her, Boquete was free to focus fully on her club duties but her performances and link up with the Royals attack couldn’t quite push Laura Harvey’s side to the play-offs. She didn’t find the net but her six assists and cutting passes through defences reminded everyone what Vero is and always has been capable of. Her pass completion rate was up near 80% for the season and if she sticks around for another year in the NWSL she’ll no doubt be a key component of a team with big ambitions.
