Early life[edit]

Lieke Elisabeth Petronella Martens was born on 16 December 1992 in Nieuw-Bergen in the north of the province of Limburg in the south of the Netherlands.[2]

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Martens represented SC Heerenveen (2009–2010) and VVV-Venlo (2010–2011) in the Vrouwen Eredivisie and Standard Liège (2011–2012) in the Belgian First Division. In her first official match with Standard she scored two goals to help win her first major title, the newly founded BeNe Super Cup.[3]

She played for German Bundesliga club FCR 2001 Duisburg from 2012 to 2014.[4]

Signing for Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC ahead of the 2014 Damallsvenskan season, Martens made her debut against Vittsjö GIK. Although right-footed, she played on the left wing. Coach Stefan Rehn praised Martens' technique and her understanding with compatriot centre forward Manon Melis.[5]

In November 2015 it was announced that Martens had left Göteborg, transferring to Damallsenskan champions FC Rosengård on a one-year contract.[6]

International[edit]

Martens was the top scorer of the 2010 U-19 Euro, tied at four goals with Turid Knaak. In August 2011 she played her first game for the senior national team, in a friendly match against China.[7]

In June 2013, national team coach Roger Reijners selected Martens in the Netherlands squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden.[8] She scored the Netherlands' first ever World Cup goal at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.[9]
