Abby Wambach Wins 2012 FIFA World Women's Player of the Year

more pics and video on my blog: Abby Wambach Wins 2012 FIFA World Women’s Player of the Year; Pia Sundhage Wins World Coach of the Year Fairways and Forehands

Pia Sundhage and Abby Wambach

Congratulations to United States Women’s National Team Player Abby Wambach for being named 2012 FIFA World Women’s Player of the Year at the FIFA Ballon D’Or Awards. Also, congratulations to Pia Sundhage who won the 2012 World Coach of Women’s Football award for her work with Team USA. However, at the end of the year she moved on to coach her native team of Sweden. She even wore a Sweden t-shirt at the awards ceremony. Also, congratulations are in order for Alex Morgan, who along with Abby Wambach was up for Player of the Year.

Abby Wambach

Of course, I’m not surprised Abby heaped praise on Alex Morgan. Alex is an awesome player who at times looks like she’s playing at a different speed than everybody else. However, when Team USA needed a crucial, back against the wall goal more times than not it seemed to be Abby who came to the rescue. Alex seems destined to win this award eventually. But not this year. As an ancillary bonus, it was cool that Abby received her award from teammate and friend, Hope Solo.
