6: Amandine Henry
Sixth, fifth and sixth again this year, Amandine Henry’s consistency in her high rankings matches the consistency of her performances. Henry doesn’t often get the plaudits of some of Lyon’s more attacking players, but her role within the team is just as vital. Henry has never been about scoring goals, although she has already chipped in with a couple this season, but about dictating games with the tempo she sets in midfield. Her ability to read games and find the space which allows her to find her team mates in attacking positions is crucial to how Lyon play and without Henry they are a poorer team for any absences. Henry is never rushed, the beauty of her play and her intelligence means she always has the time to play the way she wants. With another treble behind her, she’s also fast becoming one of the most decorated players in the game.
