Tina on Marie-Louise:
Marie-Louise is a rare talent and shows all the hallmarks of someone with a long and successful career ahead of them. She works tirelessly in front of the defence and knows exactly when to get forward. Furthermore, Marie-Louise is creative in midfield and very mature in possession for her age. She's an artist on the ball and boasts exceptional technique, while her peerless reading of the game allows her to dictate proceedings. As well as her openness and confidence, she's a real team player.

Tina's Tip:
Although Marie-Louise is very mature for her age, she can still improve her performances by focussing her training on key areas such as strength and heading. In order to assert her presence and become more of a leader on the field, she should aim to increase her goalscoring threat by shooting more regularly. There is always room for improvement fitness-wise, so she should try to manage her training to suit her individual needs. She should set herself additional challenges and goals, perhaps in another sport or by taking part in extra training sessions.

Personally, I hope she continues on her current path, which includes passing her A-Level exams and ensuring she has something to fall back on aside from football.
