Ahead of the Matildas' opening game of the Asian Cup against Japan in Vietnam tomorrow, we take a look at the stats of Matildas' star and Sydney FC's Players' Player of the Year Nicola Bolger after a standout season for young midfielder in Sydney FC-s Westfield W-League squad.

The 21 year old midfielder was a key member of Alen Stajcic-s team as the Sky Blues Ladies reached the semi-final stage of the Westfield W-League and ranked third in the world at the mobcast International Women-s Club Championship in Japan.

Bolger played and started 12 out of the 13 games, including the finals series, racking up 987 minutes of playing time.

An industrious worker in the middle of the park, Bolger went the whole season without receiving a card and managed to score five goals throughout the season including a well taken double against the Melbourne Victory in a 5-1 win in round one that was undoubtedly a highlight of the youngster-s season.

Bolger-s only team accolades to date are the dual Championships she-s claimed with Sydney FC in the 2009/10 and 2012/13 Westfield W-League seasons.

In recognition of her performances this season Bolger was voted as the Sydney Women-s FC Players Player of the Year and selected in the Westfield Matildas squad for their defence of the Asian Cup in Vietnam.
