24: Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir
Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir enjoyed another superb year, with an interesting twist. After leaving Wolfsburg for Lyon in the summer, the delayed Champions League resumption ensured she didn’t just get to face her former club in August’s final, but she scored the final goal against them too! But the odd goal is just a bonus for Iceland’s key player because there are few more intelligent players in the game than her. Her reading of the game and ability to position herself to break up play and dictate her midfield sets her aside from most and she rightfully once again sits highly placed in the 100.
