Fran Kirby (ENG)
Often dubbed as England’s mini-Messi, Kirby has been the poster girl for English football since her move from Reading to Chelsea in 2015. Diminutive yet powerful, Kirby is a natural dribbler who loves to grab an assist and could prove a pivotal creative cog in the Lionesses bid for World Cup glory this summer. Check out Fran on Instagram for some seriously cute dogs.
