Her 2019 so far:
An uncharacteristically disappointing year for Yallop's Melbourne City failed to affect her own output, with the creative midfielder scoring three goals and providing four assists across the Westfield W-League 2018/19 Season.
After tying the knot with former New Zealand international Kirsty Yallop, the 27-year-old formerly known as Tameka Butt linked up for the third time with Norwegian side Klepp where she has started in each of her side's eight matches, striking four times in the process.
A mainstay in each of Milicic's previous Westfield Matildas squads, Australia has yet to lose a match in which she has scored – 10 occasions so far.
