The Team of the Tournament was reduced from the usual 18 to a star-studded starting XI, which meant that players like Spain goalkeeper Catalina Coll and Germany defender Julia Pollak missed out.

Italy’s Martina Tomaselli and Finland’s Annika Huhta caught the eye in midfield without making the cut, as was the case up front for Romée Leuchter of the Netherlands.
