6:42 pm
short list, such as to historic season i say, because barcelona with that champions league win for the women become the first site, the only side to let the champions league first with the main canal at the women's team. but league first with the main canal at the women's team.— league first with the main canal at the women's team. but the words like this, so the women's team. but the words like this. so it's — the women's team. but the words like this, so it's really _ the women's team. but the words like this, so it's really hard _ the women's team. but the words like this, so it's really hard to _ this, so it's really hard to whittle it down to five nominees. two players from barcelona then and two from the down to five nominees. wsl including chelsea's sam kerr? the golden boot winner, helping her chelsea side defend their league title and winning the domestic cup as well with chelsea, they went all the way to the champions league final as we mentioned where they were beaten by barcelona, but sam kerr always has such. in tokyo a couple of months ago, the top score at the olympics with ten goals for the netherlands. they been so prolific in front of got the last two months and she continues that form with arts this season, top of the table of ws l at the moment.
