Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has been voted the PFA Women’s Footballer of the Year. The 22 year old has scored 31 goals so far this season, adding to her tally today as the Gunners confirmed their first league title win since 2012. Miedema opened the scoring in the 6th minute with a thunderous strike from 20 yards.
Stop what you're doing and watch this 😳

Miedema has moved within 2 goals of the all time scoring record for the Netherlands this season. Gunners boss Joe Montemurro told Arseblog News earlier today, “I understand that people watch the ball and watch the person that scores the goal, but every once in a while, take your eye off the ball and just look at her movement off the ball. She’s an intelligent player, she’ll make space for someone, she might drag someone out so someone can run into the space.”
Miedema has set new standards in the WSL, beating the scoring record for a WSL season as early as February. She will almost certainly win the golden boot too. Miedema was joined in the PFA Team of the Year by Arsenal teammates Lia Walti and Kim Little.
