Ashley Lawrence #CANWNT
Ashley Lawrence of Paris Saint-Germain FC has been named to the annual UEFA Women’s Champions League Squad of the Season. Lawrence was one of 23 all-star players selected by UEFA technical observers for the 2020-21 season.
Lawrence, a fullback from East Caledon, Ontario and Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team, helped Paris Saint-Germain FC reach the semi-final stage of the international club competition. They were eliminated by FC Barcelona, the 2020-21 winners who defeated Chelsea FC in the Final.
Lawrence is one of two Canadians that have been named to the UEFA Women’s Champions League Squad of the Season in the past five seasons. Both Lawrence and Kadeisha Buchanan were honoured in 2016-17.
This year, eight Canadians took part in the 2020-21 UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign with seven different European teams: Lawrence and Jordyn Huitema with Paris Saint-Germain FC; Jessie Fleming with Chelsea FC; Buchanan with Olympique Lyonnais; Janine Beckie with Manchester City FC; Stephanie Labbé with Rosengard FC; Alyssa Lagonia with Servette FCCF; and Cloé Lacasse with Benfica.
