Emily Van Egmond

The Newcastle-based star is now a starting XI member of the Matildas with her presence in the centre of midfield a huge boost.

Loves to ghost forward and score (she’s already scored at the 2011 World Cup, aged just 17 at the time), Van Egmond signed a deal to join German club FFC Frankfurt after the 2015 World Cup in Canada.

She is the daughter of former Socceroo Gary and at just 21 has a huge future ahead of her.
