The German wunderkind is the top destroying No. 6 in the women's game right now. With her exceptional ability to read the game and send a message with every crunching tackle, Oberdorf brings balance, security and simplicity to the dangerous German lineup.

Germany will count on the Wolfsburg star to make a run in Australia and New Zealand. After hoisting back-to-back titles in 2003 and 2007, the Germans are still looking for their elusive third trophy, and having Oberdorf firing on all cylinders might be the key to putting them over the top.
