I’m so glad to read that Pia and Abby scooped the awards for 2012! Finally we see a different winner!
Congratulations to the Abby and Pia! More details from the awards here.
I agree @Alexandre, it was not Bruno Bini’s year although leading up to the Olympics the French national team were very successful they were unable to bring home a medal. I think that France will win a major tournament soon though.
congratulations to Pia Sundhage and abby wambach, in my opinion bini did not deserved it this year (bad choice for the Olympic Games, problem with Sonia bompastor)
