England - Millie Bright has excelled as a center-back for the Lionesses and Chelsea, but it is only recently that her world-class position has become beyond dispute. Few weaknesses can be found in her stance, decision-making, or physical presence, and she works well with Leah Williamson, who adds pace to an effective combination.
Fran Kirby was a little underappreciated in the Lionesses' run before she chipped Hedvig Lindahl to make it 4-0 in the semifinal match against Sweden. Kirby has demonstrated her versatility while also making use of her speed and guile, and after also tallying against Northern Ireland, she has now scored multiple goals in a major event for the first time.
Germany -Svenja Huth, the German winger who can get into the centre and threaten to score on her own goal or ping crosses in for Alex Popp to turn in.
Lena Oberdorf, who turned 20 three days after Wolfsburg's victory over Chelsea in December, is already firmly established in the Germany squad after participating in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. She can play defence, but with Germany, she does the unglamorous work in the middle of the field so that players like Huth and Popp can grab more attention up front.
