In Focus: Hegerberg stars in LiveScore's Euro 2022 combined XI
Women’s Euro 2022 is set to provide a thrilling showcase of the continent's most exciting talent.
From Ballon d'Or winners to rising stars, the tournament will see the very best fight it out for a place in the Wembley final on July 31.
And we have put together a combined XI in a 3-4-3 formation of the key players to watch.
Goalkeeper: Manuela Zinsberger (Austria)
Manuela Zinsberger, 26, has a wealth of experience under her belt for Austria having made 74 appearances for her nation since earning her first cap in 2013.
The stopper joined Arsenal from Bayern Munich in 2019 and had her best campaign for the Gunners last season, winning the Women's Super League Golden Glove.
She is very comfortable with the ball at her feet and provides a reassuring presence for an Austrian side who will be confident of securing qualification from Group A.
Centre-back: Lucy Bronze (England)
Lucy Bronze, 30, is known as one of the best players in the world having played at right-back for a host of Europe’s elite clubs.
She has represented the likes of Lyon and Manchester City, moving from the WSL outfit to Barcelona last month, and has earned 90 caps for England since her debut in 2013.
Bronze is agile, physical and has a strong mentality that will undoubtedly benefit the Lionesses this summer and makes her an ideal fit on the right of our back three.
Centre-back: Wendie Renard (France)
Wendie Renard, 31, is one of the most decorated players in club football, having won 14 league titles and eight Champions Leagues with Lyon, where she has spent her entire career.
She is technically gifted, quick and an effective set-piece taker who has produced jaw-dropping numbers for a defender — bagging over 100 goals in her domestic career and notching 33 times for France.
Renard became the first woman to make 100 appearances in the Champions League last season and the French will hope that her vast experience and winning mentality will help lead them to glory.
Centre-back: Magdalena Eriksson (Sweden)
Magdalena Eriksson, 28, has been an integral player for Chelsea since joining the Blues in 2017.
She won her first cap for Sweden in 2014 and has made 84 appearances since, earning an Olympic silver medal on two occasions.
The left-footed centre-back balances out our defence and, having won 10 titles at an elite club, will look to inspire the Swedes as they look to go all the way.
Right wing: Pernille Harder (Denmark)
Chelsea forward Pernille Harder will be central to Denmark's chances of escaping the hugely challenging Group B.
The Danes will likely have to edge out one of Spain or Germany to progress but will fancy their chances thanks to the dazzling Blues forward, who has 68 strikes in 134 caps.
Harder, 29, moved to the WSL in 2020 and has been a revelation ever since — scoring a delightful chip after a mazy solo run against Manchester United to display her quality last season.
Central midfield: Sara Dabritz (Germany)
Sara Dabritz has become a staple of the Germany team over the years having been part of the squad that won their last European Championship in 2013 as an 18-year-old.
The midfielder, now 27, has racked up 86 caps and scored 17 times for the Germans and starred at Paris Saint-Germain to earn a move to Lyon this summer.
She has a relentless nature on and off the ball with the vision to cut open defences and will be a force to be reckoned with in the key midfield battles.
Central midfield: Aitana Bonmati (Spain)
Aitana Bonmati, 24, plays alongside Alexia Putellas at Barcelona and with the Ballon d'Or winner injuring her knee on the eve of the tournament, will take over the creative reins from her decorated team-mate.
The playmaker developed through La Masia since she was 14 and produced her best career numbers last season, finding the back of the net 13 times while providing six assists in the league.
Bonmati is an elegant and tricky attacking midfielder, who has been on fire for Spain and will hope to carry her form into this summer's tournament.
Left wing: Lieke Martens (Netherlands)
Lieke Martens, 29, built her reputation while playing for Spanish giants Barcelona before moving to PSG this summer.
The Dutchwoman was pivotal in her country's 2017 Euros triumph, winning Player of the Tournament.
Martens is usually deployed on the left flank and likes to cut in on her stronger, deadly right foot with the ability to create as well as score goals.
Forward: Vivianne Miedema (Netherlands)
As the all-time top scorer in the WSL, Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema poses a huge problem for any defence.
She broke the WSL record in October 2020 and being only 25 years old, the sky is the limit for the Dutch sensation.
Her record for Netherlands is incredible as she has hit the back of the net 94 times in 111 appearances, making it easy to see why she has quickly secured legendary status in the women’s game.
Forward: Marie-Antoinette Katoto (France)
Marie-Antoinette Katoto, 23, has been on fire for club and country.
The Frenchwoman is one of the world’s best talents, having produced jaw-dropping numbers in her domestic career for PSG since making her debut at 16 years old.
All eyes will be on the striker as she is expected to set the tournament alight, aiming to earn a first piece of silverware with her nation.
Forward: Ada Hegerberg (Norway)
Ada Hegerberg, 26, is one of the greatest forwards to play the game and she is set to be Norway’s shining light at this tournament.
Hegerberg joined current European champions Lyon in 2014 and has won six Champions League titles with the French giants.
Her international record is top notch with 42 goals in 70 appearances, including four in four since returning to the fold after a five-year hiatus as she protested the treatment of women's football by the Norwegian FA.
And she will hope to steer her nation clear of disappointment on the European stage after they finished bottom of their group in 2017.
