HER STORY…

  • The lethal France international rose through the youth ranks at Toulouse, but moved to Marseille when she was 18 years 0ld. She spent six years there, and hit 14 goals in 16 league games in the 2019-20 season!
  • That red-hot form attracted the attention of loads of top clubs, but it was WSL side Everton who won the race for the star’s signature – The Toffees completed the deal in August!
  • The forward has already won 30 caps for France, and was part of the squad that reached the semi-finals of the 2019 WWC! She scored twice in that tournament, including the opener against Brazil!

HER STYLE…

  • She leads the line really well, and is the focal point of most of Everton’s attacks!
  • Her best attribute is her sick shooting – she doesn’t need many chances to bust net!
  • Her epic movement around the box means she’s always ready to pounce on chances!
