How do I teach a girl to apply her skills?

One of the girls on my U13's team knows how to run, pass, intercept and get free during training however in a game she dulls all of her skills down and doesn't do anything? She will literally stand still in her position and occasionally have an extreme delayed reaction to defend a ball. Any ideas on how to motivate her nicely in a game?

talk to her with a parent or another coach around.  make sure she understands that you can see she has so many good and sounds skills at training but are a little confused about why she doesnt bring them to a game?  find out what is the issue, and that way you can deal with the problem.  if she is motivated during training but not games, it isnt necessarily a case of not being motivated.
