Tom Stone on Dominguez:
“Maribel is quick and crafty, especially in the attacking third, where we need the ability to draw attention away from Hooper and Parlow. She is also versatile enough to play up front or at attacking midfield, which will be crucial as some players will be serving national team duty in this world cup year.”
