Biography

Merissa's first touch of the ball in a white shirt was scoring the NZ U-20's winning goal in a 2-1 victory over senior Argentinean club side River Plate. With genuine pace that makes her a handful regardless of whether she plays on the right of midfield or as an out-and-out striker, a stunning first senior goal (against Australia) earlier this year hints at a scoring prowess already fully displayed at domestic level.
