Megan Rapinoe has won The Best FIFA Women’s Player award for the first time in her career, securing the prize ahead of fellow finalists Alex Morgan and Lucy Bronze.
Rapinoe receives the individual honor after playing a starring role in the United States’ triumph at the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
The 34-year-old scooped the Golden Boot after scoring six goals, while she was also lifted the Golden Ball after being judged the best player at the tournament.
Morgan finished with the same number of goals in France, though missed out on the scoring crown by virtue of playing more minutes than her compatriot.
The 30-year-old striker who has 107 goals in her illustrious international career was the only one of the trio to previously be nominated, finishing third in 2012.
