Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

UPDATE: Megan Rapinoe was awarded the Golden Boot while helping lead the U.S. team to victory.

The best players in the 2019 Women's World Cup all entered to compete for the biggest prize in the soccer world. Many of the athletes on this list are among the best women's soccer players in the world right now and are rightly beloved by their home countries.

Samantha Kerr and Amandine Henry are two of the most talented and fierce women's soccer players in the game and made their presence felt in the World Cup. Germany's Dzsenifer Marozsan and South Africa's Janine van Wyk likewise helped try to lift their teams into contention for the trophy.

That's not to mention the champion U.S. women's national soccer team, which still features some of the game's biggest stars (at least in the U.S.) such as Megan Rapinoe, who won the Golden Boot for the tournament's top scorer, Alex Morgan, who won the Silver Boot, and Julie Ertz.
