Lieke Martens Is the Soccer Player to Watch at the 2019 Women's World Cup

By

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup officially kicked off (no pun intended) on June 7 in France, and one team that’s making headlines early on is the Netherlands thanks in part to player Lieke Martens.

The 26-year-old became a breakout star in 2015 after she scored her country’s first-ever World Cup goal in a match against New Zealand. Here’s what you need to know about the athlete before she takes the field again.

Lieke Martens dated a fellow Dutch soccer player.

The beauty occasionally shared photos of her boyfriend Benjamin van Leer — who plays for the Dutch soccer team NAC Breda — on Instagram, though it’s unclear whether the two are still an item. The last picture that either of them posted with each other was on March 24.
