Who to look out for?

Alexia Putellas - Spain

Women's Euros 2022

One of the biggest talents in women's football right now, the 27-year-old could be key in helping take Spain all the way to glory.

A born winner and the current Ballon d'Or holder, Putellas is the link between defence and attack. Whenever she has the ball, things will happen and more often than not, her performance dictates the final result.

Vivianne Miedema - Netherlands

Women's Euros 2022

If the Netherlands are to retain their Euros title, then the form of Vivianne Miedema will likely have a huge say on that matter.

The free-scoring forward is lethal in front of goal, the epitome of only needing one chance to win a game for her side. Breaking all sorts of records, it wouldn't be a surprise to see her in contention for the golden boot come the end of the tournament.

Lauren Hemp - England

Women's Euros 2022

At 21-years-old, Lauren Hemp is one of the younger members of Sarina Wiegman's squad, but don't let that distract you from the fact that she is also one of most important members.

The Manchester City winger was voted as the PFA Young Women's Player of the Year in four of the last five seasons and dazzles fans with her electric displays.

She will get fans inside the stadiums and watching at home off their seats and could be fundamental in taking the Lionesses all the way to glory.
