Bayern Munich’s star midfielder is spirited and gutsy. Georgia Stanway is an aggressor, and to describe her as anything less would be inimical of the passion she exudes. Stanway is a versatile and positionally disciplined player having played stints as a right-back, a holding midfielder and a forward. However, Stanway’s most natural role falls as a number 10, bridging the defensive lines of midfield to the forward troupe.
Stanway is a significant attacking facet for England with an ability to facilitate successful and consistent passes and carries into the penalty area. Yet, she is also a considerable defensive asset who is particularly knowing of the importance of defensive unity across the whole pitch. Stanway is already affluent in international experience with over 40 senior caps and 14 goals for her country, despite still being in her early twenties.
