Left back Lea Faragó was also named in the All-Star team, scoring 32 goals throughout the competition, while the player selected for the right back position was Netherlands’ Alieke van Maurik.

The All-Star team is completed by Iceland’s Erin Klara Thorkelsdottir and Denmark left wing Matilde Vestergaard, who was also the sixth best scorer in the competition, with 52 goals.

The top goal scorer of the competition was Montenegro’s right back Jelena Vukčević, who scored 74 goals in seven matches, 12 more than Portugal’s centre back Constança Sequeira, who had 62 goals, while Angola’s left back Bernadeth Carla Belo was third, with 60 goals.
