Sam Kerr's star continues to rise, to the extent that she has joined world superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe in having a boot custom-made for her by sportswear giant Nike. Rarified company indeed.
Despite falling one hurdle short of silverware – her Perth Glory side losing 4-2 to Sydney FC in the Westfield W-League 2019 Grand Final – Kerr still netted 17 times and created a league-high 46 chances for the West Australian side across 13 matches.
