What player inspired you the most and why? Zinédine Zidane because he was fantastic with the ball, he was gifted with exceptional technique and he scored beautiful and crucial goals.

What is the best advice you ever received from him? To be willing to do well and not to be scared to do wrong.

Who is the best female player you ever played with? Aya Miyama (Japan). I played with her in Los Angeles, she is incredible.

Which was the strongest team you ever met? INAC Kobe Leonessa from Japan.

Against which female player have you struggled the most? Marta, who is able to change a game by herself.

Tell us a story from when you were young about your first football club? I was the favourite because I was the only girl among boys. I played for eight years with them.

Which advice would you give a young female player who would like to have success? You are always awarded for your hard work. Never give up.

What are your memories of playing at youth finals? Excellent memories, it's always very interesting to gain experience as soon as possible when you are young. I was lucky enough to finish U19 European Championship runner-up.
