83. Almuth Schult
One of the best goalkeepers around drops heavily this year but that’s no huge surprise given the injuries she has endured and the fact she hasn’t played since the World Cup. With a first child on the way, Schult will be taking a spell away from the game early in 2020 but she left her mark earlier in the year by once again proving the reliable number one for Wolfsburg and helping her side to a domestic league and cup double. Schult kept an impressive four clean sheets in a row for Germany at the World Cup as they reached the quarter-finals, but she could do little to stop Sweden overturning an early deficit to send Schult and her team mates home early.
Ella Masar, former Wolfsburg player:
“Almuth is one of the rare goalkeepers in this day and age who has it all. Power, strength, technical ability and she’s a presence in goal. As a goalkeeper you need that presence and I think she’s one of the best goalkeepers I’ve ever played with and she’s someone who demands respect from not only the team but also her opponents.”
