Mariann Gajhede Knudsen

National team: Denmark

Which players most inspired you? Xavi Hernández: his positioning, his passing percentage and his leadership. Katrine S Pedersen: She always wanted to learn and had fun while learning.

Which coach most inspired you? Kenneth Heiner-Møller

What was the best advice they gave you? Always be aware of your surroundings (perception), both offensively and defensively.

Best player you've played with? Christina Bonde (Fortuna Hjørring)

Toughest opponent? Umeå IK in the 2003 UEFA Women's Cup final, when I played for Fortuna.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? Fun, friends, solidarity, many hours on the training pitch.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Train a lot and with quality, but most importantly have fun!

What was the experience like of playing in a youth final tournament? It was the first time I'd experienced the special atmosphere at a championship: a lot of spectators, pressure to perform, playing and measuring yourself against the best players in the world, handling the media and enjoying fans. For me, it was an amazing experience and I learned a lot that I was able to use in important international games later on in my career, both for club and country.
