On the 24th of March, we will finally know the results of the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year. While the votes were closed off at the very beginning of March we are still waiting excitedly for the winner to be announced between the five nominees of this year.
These women are all incredibly talented and all deserve the position. They were chosen by a panel of experts (coaches, players, journalists and administrators) who followed their victories throughout their careers. The nominees for this year are:
- Lucy Bronze (28 years old defender from England and previously played in France, nearly nominated for the women’s Ballon d’Or and named Uefa’s Women Player of the Year)
- Julie Ertz (27 years old midfielder from the USA already crowned US Soccer Female Player of the Year twice)
- Sam Kerr (26 years old forward from Australia and with a full list of world-records wins and moves under her belt)
- Vivianne Miedema (23 years old forward from the Netherlands, all-time leading scorer across women and men’s teams in the Netherlands and awarded previously the PFA Players’ Player of the Year)
- Megan Rapinoe (34 years old forward from the USA, previously won the Ballon d’Or for 2019 and named Best Fifa Women’s Player the same year)
