Sam Kerr Is The Best Soccer Player in the World

On Tuesday afternoon, Sam Kerr carried Australia on her back to a 4-1 victory over Jamaica to advance to the Round of 16 to battle Norway later this week.

Kerr netted 4 goals and if you watched the game from top to bottom it felt like she could have easily walked away with 7 or 8 if the ball bounced the right way.

She is the first Australian to ever score a hat-trick in the World Cup and set a record with four goals in a game. She’s also the first female Australian basketball player to earn $1 million playing.

Samantha Kerr is now tied with USA’s Alex Morgan for the most goals (5) in the 2019 World Cup.

The first ever women’s Ballon d’Or, the trophy acknowledging the best soccer player in the world, was awarded to Ada Hegerberg in 2018 and Kerr finished 5th in voting playing in America’s National Women’s Soccer League (where she holds the record for most career goals).

But Kerr is proving in this year’s World Cup that she deserved to win that award.

She is constantly in the center of the action. She is always active. There is no wasted movement. Every motion she makes is with the intent of sending the ball into the back of the net.

She’s 5-foot-6 and out jumps defenders that tower over her. She’s smart enough to use her size as an advantage. She knows the perfect angles to take on every ball in the air.

Australia has a genuine chance to win the World Cup and that’s almost solely thanks to Sam Kerr’s talents.

I’m gushing over Kerr right now and Team USA could easily win every game for the rest of the tournament by 10 goals and no one would be shocked.

But I’m riding with Sam Kerr and the Matildas over everyone.
