Lisa De Vanna scored one of the best solo goals of the year | TWG
Confession time. We at TWG love Lisa De Vanna…okay at least Ann really really likes Lisa (it’s a Perth thing!).
Regardless of like, dislike or indifference, as a football fan no one can discount the talent of the 28 year old striker. After an indifferent 2011, she returned to her best form in 2012.
Australia commentator Craig Foster once said that De Vanna “ran on jet-fuel — burning up twice as fast, but with incredible impact.” On song De Vanna is one of the best strikers in the world.
On Sunday lunch time in Carson, LA she capped off a brilliant Matildas first half with a first class goal. Receiving the ball from Steph Catley just inside the Matildas’ half, a quick piroute and she was off. Not even US captain Christie Rampone (the fastest player in their team) had a chance.
This was pure De Vanna.
