AFC Youth Player of the Year (Women) 2019: Jun Endo
Hong Kong: Japan's Jun Endo was named the AFC Youth Player of the Year (Women) at the 2019 Annual Awards after a series of brilliant performances over the past year.
Endo first donned the Japan national team jersey in 2014 when she competed in the AFC U-14 Girls' Regional Championship, before playing in the AFC U-16 Women's Championship a year later, scoring twice against Thailand in the semi-finals with Japan eventually losing 1-0 to DPR Korea in the final.
On top of being part of Continental action at such a young age, the winger also experienced the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Jordan and she didn't disappoint, scoring three goals as Japan finished runners-up to DPR Korea, losing on penalties in the decider.
