Her 2019 so far:
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.
Continuing to shine with Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL – she scored twice last weekend as Red Stars inflicted a first defeat in 11 months on North Carolina Courage – the striker has four goals in four matches for her country this year, taking her overall tally to 31.
