BETH MEAD'S heroics inspired England's Euros triumph this summer – but she's not the only world-class footballer in her own house.
Mead, 27, was one of the standout performers for the Lionesses, winning the Golden Boot and player of the tournament trophies.
She fired Sarina Wiegman's side to glory with her six goals and five assists in just six games.
Her performances on home soil have led to her being the favourite to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.
The Arsenal attacker also came second for the Ballon d'Or this year being beaten by Alexis Putellas.
Mead is an inspiration to many leading the way for women's football in England.
Who is Beth Mead's partner Vivianne Miedema?
Mead is dating her team-mate and fellow Arsenal star Vivianne Miedema.
It was confirmed by Mead after her Euros win that she was going out with the 26-year-old Dutch striker.
The duo are both goalscorers with Miedema one of the most prolific in the Women's Super League.
She has been at the Gunners for six seasons scoring 78 goals in 97 matches.
