    @Gromit – I agree with you.
    I think this highlights again the problem with the main awards for women’s football. I don’t think the player’s individual performances in their leagues are taking into account. I know this is partly to lack of coverage – But I believe there has been enough progress with that now, that you can follow the games a lot better than before. 
    Nadine Angerer was a stand out player at the Euros without doubt and I think that earned her this award. Like you Gromit I am very happy for her, I love her passion for the game you can see it in the way she plays.

    Natze was the Best player at the Euro with no possible doubt. She was just fantastic. But if we take the whole season… come on ! She did nothing before the Euro with Frankfurt. Goessling was so crucial the wole year round for Wolfsburg, winning the Bundeslika, the Cup, the CL (awarded Best player of the Final) and the Euro. Nobody – excpet Nadine Kessker – deserved the UEFA award more than Goessling… I’m very disappointed, even if I am happy for Angerer, a player I like very much too.
