Nilla Fischer (defender, VfL Wolfsburg/SWE)
• The Sweden defensive midfielder turned centre-back for UEFA Women's EURO 2013 was seventh in the 2012/13 voting for the UEFA Best Women's Player in Europe Award and was VfL Wolfsburg's key signing last winter.

• Fischer made her Wolfsburg debut in front of more than 8,000 fans against FC Bayern München and in her 31 club appearances last season they conceded only 22 goals as they retained the UEFA Women's Champions League and German titles.

• Captain Nadine Kessler described Fischer as "a top leader", and her opponent in the 2013/14 UEFA Women's Champions League final, Tyresö FF midfielder and compatriot Caroline Seger, said: "She has grown a lot as a player, because she is in a different position from what she is used to."
