Victoria López Serrano Felix (born 26 July 2006), known as Vicky López, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder and a winger for Primera Federación club FC Barcelona B.
Early Life and Career
López was born in Madrid to a Spanish father and a Nigerian mother.
López scored 60 goals in 17 matches during the 2020–21 youth league season. She made her senior debut for Madrid CFF on 5 September 2021 as a 73rd-minute substitution in a 2–0 Primera División home loss to Athletic Bilbao.
Vicky Lopez at 16, 1 month and 19 days became the youngest footballer to paly for FC Barcelona Femeni in their professional era after her debut agaist UDG Tenerife on 18 September 2022.
Lopez attracted attention while playing football on the beaches of Benidorm – a town where Alfredo Ulloa, the president of the football club, Madrid CFF, also happened to spend his summer. Alfredo signed her for the youth team in 2018 and she has not looked back since.
In 2019, Lopez scored a hat-trick in the final of La Liga Promises Femenina, helping her team win the title as she won the Golden Boot.
In the 2020-21 season, with 60 goals in 17 matches, Lopez became the promised youngster of Spanish football, as the U-17 Spanish national team came calling.
López has been called up to the Spain women’s national under-17 football team. She is also eligible to represent Nigeria and has shown interest.
When Spain beat Colombia to win the 2022 U-17 Women’s World Cup at the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday, it became the first country to defend the title successfully.
Unlike its previous spell in 2018, Los Furious Roja has had a different sort of journey in India, scoring half the number of goals (six) it did four years ago. The player who has been the architect of attacks for the team has been a 16-year-old from Barcelona – Vicky Lopez.
“Winning a World Cup was one of my dreams,” she said, after the match.
“Nigeria is still an option but no one from the Federation has contacted us,” her father, Jesus Lopez-Serrano Perez, had told allnigeriasoccer.com in June last year. “It would make Vicky very excited if she receives a call-up to play for Nigeria, but it is very likely that in September she will be called up for the Women’s U17 EURO qualifiers.”
The call-up for Flamingoes never arrived and Lopez ended up playing for Spain at the U-17 women’s European Championships, where she didn’t just become an engine in attack but also scored on her debut in the EUROs.
Spain finished as the runner-up at the U-17 European Championship, but on a day when Lopez lifted the World Cup, her ‘second home’, Nigeria, also secured a win – a well-fought 3-2 win against Germany in the bronze medal match.
“When I found out that Nigeria won and after the game went into the penalty shootout, it was very encouraging for me. It helped me in my finals,” she said.
The Barcelona player has had four key contributions (two goals, one assist and one key pass) in Spain’s seven goals in the tournament, including two crucial goals against Japan in the quarterfinals, which saw her team make it to the semis.
Spanish footballer Vicky Lopez won the Golden ball award after guiding Spain to the title at the just concluded FIFA Under-17 World Cup.
Spain were the champions last time out in 2018, and they were still unstoppable in India, weaving past opponents with ease.
A key component in their performance was Lopez. The Barcelona midfielder scored two goals in the tournament, but asides from her goals, she was spectacular.
Lopez was the go-to player whenever Spain were in trouble. The 16-year-old midfielder controlled things in the middle of the park with her deft and smart touches. And most of the plays that Spain made were through her.
Vicky Lopez is currently single and not in any relationship for now. Vicky Lopez is also not married.
Net Worth and Salary
Vicky Lopez’s net worth as of 2022 is estimated at around $50, 000 – $500, 000.
