From Stanway to Pugh: 10 young players to watch at the Womens World Cup | Suzanne Wrack
We pick ten extremely talented players who are aiming to have their international breakthrough in France this summer
Lea Schller, Germany
Age 21 Position Forward
Club SGS Essen
Lea Schller is making her major tournament debut at the World Cup. Having played at under-17, under-19 and under-20 levels, the electric forward was first called into the squad by the former manager Steffi Jones in 2017. She didnt get the nod for the 2017 European Championship but a change in manager hasnt halted her rise. The striker has 46 goals in 101 games for her club after making her Bundesliga debut at 16. Now she has eight in 12 internationals, scoring all four in a 4-0 defeat of the Czech Republic in qualifying and giving Germany a neat 1-0 win against France in February.
