Who are your top 5 favorite soccer players?
Oh gosh, why would you ever ask that. There are so many strong, courageous, and wonderful footballers that I look up to and admire that I don’t think I could ever pick. I will try to satisfy your curiosity with some of my current favorite players, not just because of their playing style but also their personalities.
So without further ado, in no particular order:
Tobin Heath: I love Tobin. She is an adorable human being. I love her playing style, she never ceases to impress me with her cool tricks. She is by far the most technical player in the NWSL. Also she’s so adorable and her smile fucks. me. up.
Alyssa Naeher: I’d marry her in a heartbeat, definitely a keeper. (Lame I know) I love how calm and collected she usually remains on the field but this calmness can instantly turn into hard, unwavering determination. I love going to matches live and listening to her yell.
Sam Kerr: No explanation necessary.
Lina Hurtig: Lina never gives two fucks and I love it. There’s something about serious, determined footballers that gets me. She’s also been absolutely killing it for both club and country lately. She’s a really smart player who makes the most out of every opportunity.
Christen Press: Sweet, sweet Press. There is no one as good and kind and wonderful as Christen Press. Bless her fucking heart. She’s an amazing footballer, smart as hell, and is just fucking radiant.
Rebecca Quinn: Mainly I love Quinny for the work she does at Duke to create a more inclusive and safe space in sports. I love how involved she is in the LGBTQ+ community at Duke. She’s also a damn good player.
And finally… @dont-fvck-up No list of my favorite soccer players is complete without this loser.
