Emily Van Egmond (AUS)
Australia’s midfield anchor, Van Egmond is known for her exceptional vision, ball control and ability to spray long passes across the pitch with ease. Currently playing in the U.S for Orlando Pride, Van Egmond cites her father Gary, ex Socceroo and Newcastle Jets coach, as her biggest inspiration. Emily enjoys skateboarding and going to the beach in her spare time when she’s not dictating play from the middle of the park for the Matildas.
