18. CORINE FRANCO
Franco is the base of France's strong defense, but she's also known as an excellent deep-lying (er, soccer terminology) playmaker. She had scored points in two qualifying matches for the World Cup, giving her team a 7-0, and 12-0 victory. Continuing her dedication to her team, on Sunday, during the match against Sweden for third place, she carried injured goalkeeper Berangere Sapowicz on her back.
