List of the best current female soccer players in 2016-2017. We have compiled a list of the top athletes who are both female and specialize in the wonderful sport of soccer. While many on this list are the best soccer players of all time, this page specifically ranks the best soccer players of OUR time. These women play soccer (or football, depending on where you are from) like nobody's business but their own.
 
The greatest women's soccer players today come from different countries and different training. Hope Solo and Heather Mitts are two of the most popular soccer players in the women's league - and their styles in playing are not exactly the same. Then there are players like Heather O'Reilly, who is such a legend on the American field that she's known by her initials "HAO." Whether or not the woman is a midfielder or an Olympic Gold medalist, like Boston's O'Reilly, any athlete on this list has a long, goal-filled career ahead of her.
