21: Crystal Dunn
While some players who rank highly on this list have it all, Crystal Dunn literally does, one of a few players who can jump between defensive and attacking roles for club and country. Dunn’s importance and quality to North Carolina Courage was evident as ever during the Challenge Cup, her desire and drive to get forward with her natural attacking instincts making her a key outlet. For the USA, Dunn has continued to be used in a left-back role under Vlatko Andonovski and has been part of a team that has conceded just one goal all year. One of the best at taking on her opponent, a new challenge awaits Dunn in 2021 after being traded to Portland Thorns.
