China and Paris Saint-Germain Feminines midfielder Wang Shuang was crowned the Asian Football Confederation’s Player of the Year 2018 last night at a ceremony in Oman, becoming the fourth Chinese player to receive the award. The Wuhan-born talent has enjoyed an impressive 12 months having moved to PSG in the summer after helping Dalian Quanjian to the Chinese Women’s Super League title two years in a row.

Wang has played for the national side over 80 times and has scored 25 goals for her country at full international level — netting six times in this year’s Asian Games in Indonesia. Her career with PSG got off to a pretty good start in that regard as well, albeit thanks to some dodgy goalkeeping:

She was named Chinese Women’s Footballer of the Year last year and has become a regular for the Steel Roses, as China’s women’s team is known. She ought to be a key figure at next year’s FIFA World Cup, coincidentally taking place in France, for which China was the first team to qualify.

Here’s a more extensive highlights reel featuring some silky skills (and great goals) from her career to date:
