Press's Tyresö player guide

Tyresö FF forward Christen Press gives her exclusive player-by-player guide to her team-mates as they prepare for their Lisbon final with VfL Wolfsburg on Thursday.

Carola Söberg, goalkeeper, Sweden
Carola's really competitive; she keeps us on our toes every training session. She's a fantastic shot-stopper.

Tinja-Riikka Korpela, goalkeeper, Finland
'Tiney' has so much energy and a consistency that she brings every day and motivates us to do better.

Line Røddik, defender, Denmark
Line has a brilliant left foot. She's very technical and very consistent.

Lisa Klinga, defender, Sweden
Klinga's a fighter. She's scrappy, she gets in there and she pushes us every day.

Whitney Engen, defender, United States
Whitney's a leader. She's my long-term friend; I've seen her grow as a soccer player. She's a winner.

Meghan Klingenberg, defender, United States
Meg is a great defender, really hard to beat one versus one, [and gives] great service in the box.

Rilany, defender, Brazil
Rilany also: excellent defender, great service in the box and a big smile every day for practice.

Linda Sembrant, defender, Sweden
'Sempon' is a fantastic, tactical, savvy centre-back. She wins in the air and distributes beautifully.

Mayara, midfielder, Brazil
Mayara is great in the air, a great presence in the midfield.

Thaisa, midfielder, Brazil
Thaisa is an attacking centre-mid, new on the team this year, and she has developed at a rate I've never seen another player develop at.

Caroline Seger, midfielder, Sweden
Seger's our captain. She's hilarious, she brings energy and spirit and quality that's matched by few.

Johanna Rytting Kaneryd, midfielder, Sweden
'Yo-Yo', she's our youngest player. She smiles every day at practice, and she's someone that makes us all appreciate being out on the field with her.

Lisa Dahlkvist, midfielder, Sweden
'Dahler' is our shining star. She's our undercover player; she does all the work. She plays beautiful long balls and I rave about her as much as I possibly can.

Malin Diaz, midfielder, Sweden
Malin has stepped up so hugely this year in a big role. She's a young player and she's got so much quality.

Fabiana, forward, Brazil
Fabiana's fantastic, with a one-versus-one ability I haven't seen from many and she's got a great 'out' too.

Marta, forward, Brazil
Marta's creative, unpredictable, emotional and a true legend.

Madelaine Edlund, forward, Sweden
'Madé' is a young mother coming back this year. She has such a great spirit, and she's got a great quality in her finishing.

Verónica Boquete, forward, Spain
'Veró' is a very passionate player; I've never met someone that loves the game more than her and it really shows every time she steps on the field.

Christen Press, forward, United States
I want to be remembered as a true finisher, a good team-mate, and someone who shows up every day to training and plays games with the same standard.

Christen Press was talking to Andy Brassell
