SICK STADIUMS Next year’s tournament will be a special one, as it celebrates its 60th birthday!

blues baller… sam kerr!

FACTPACK Age: 26 Country: Australia Position: Striker Boots: Nike Mercurial Superfly KERR’S STORY… The Australia goal machine has spent her career bouncing between her home country and the USA. She’s spent most of her time at Perth Glory, but was last seen banging in goals for Chicago Red Stars! Her goals fired them to the NWSL play-off finals, where they lost to North Carolina Courage! GOAL MACHINE! Kerr was born to score goals! Since the start of 2016, she’s bagged 97 in just 109 league matches, while burying a total of 38 international goals during her career! She needs just nine more to become The Matildas’ highest goalscorer of all time! GAME CHANGER!

say what?

WHAT A STAT! There were tons of great tweets after Kyle Walker went in goal for Man. City in the Champions League recently, and this was one of our faves! Walks still didn’t make the England squad as a right-back or keeper, though! STICK TO DEFENDING, MATE! Spare a thought for Exeter’s Pierce Sweeney – one of his shots in training recently was so bad, it hit his own car in the club car park and smashed the windscreen! We are sort of impressed, though... BONKERS GOAL RECORD! We had to read this jaw-dropping stat again after we first saw it… Benfica Women’s team recently scored their 500th official goal – they were founded less than two years ago. Incredible! FLOODING CHAOS! Loads of people were affected by flooding in England recently, and non-league Belper Town’s pitch…

champions league heroes!

20 NICOLAS TAGLIAFICO AJAX Left-back The lung-busting Argentina left-back was class in Ajax’s opening CL game against Lille, bagging a goal and an assist! With 20 successful tackles in total, only one player has made more in the Champo League this campaign! DID YOU KNOW? Tagliafico joined Ajax for just £4 million in 2018. Bargain! 19 ALEX OXLADECHAMBERLAIN LIVERPOOL Midfielder The Ox has made our Top 20, even though he’s only played half of the games so far – that’s how good he’s been! He netted two top-quality goals in Genk, before bagging another in the reverse fixture at Anfield. Hero! DID YOU KNOW? The Ox got a CL winners’ medal last season, despite not playing a single game! 18 PRESNEL KIMPEMBE PSG Centre-back The France CB has always been a good player, but he’s gone up a few gears in this season’s CL! His…
