You watched, you cheered, you were wowed and then you showed your appreciation by voting for your top performances...

Bronze medals, a smiling Bass, top cats in Europe, beating the Germans for the first time EVER and all done in a thoroughly entertaining manner. How could you pick an individual out from such a strong group display? Well, you gave it a whirl and we totted up the voting...


Your @teamsnap #SKFANCARD Player of the Match v Germany was STEPH HOUGHTON.


Steph got better and better throughout the tournament and put in a commanding display at the heart of the defence, as well as often acting as an important element in the team's offensive threat too.  She picked up 36% of the vote. Lucy Bronze continued her good form to collect 16% and Laura Bassett was just behind her with 15%.

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
