Fran Kirby

No. 14

A fit and match ready Fran Kirby is always a tremendous boost. After taking a break and missing part of the season due to severe fatigue, the Chelsea attacker has worked her way back to fitness and onto Sarina Wiegman’s roster. An experienced international, Kirby knows how to handle the pressures tournament football and is well known for sprinkling moments of magic along the way.

A diminutive and lively attacking player, Kirby is hard to keep hold of, finding space between lines to propel fast moving transitions. While Kirby typically plays on the right side of the forward line for Chelsea, it is likely to adopt an attacking midfield role for England due to her ability to seamlessly roam between central and wide channels. Kirby acts as a decoy and has a knack of knowingly drawing in defenders to open up space for others. She will outwit, outfox and outplay at every twist and turn.
