Helga Franklínsdóttir

Stjarnan

Which player most inspired you and why? Katrín Jónsdóttir because she was the captain of the Icelandic national team while working as a doctor, which makes her a great role model for every young soccer player. It shows you if you work hard enough you can make your dreams come true.

Which coach most inspired you? Thorlákur Árnason is a great coach that works hard and gets the best out of each player.

What was the best advice they gave you? Always work hard and do your best in practice and in games.

Best player you've played with? All of the girls at Stjarnan, but if I had so say one it would be the captain Gunnhildur Yrsa; a great leader.

Toughest opponent? Valur

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I was in a great team that won everything one year. Three of us play together now at Stjarnan.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Never give up. Even if you get injured, never stop believing you will get through it and become stronger and a better player.
