Megan Rapinoe wins women’s Ballon d’Or for 2019.

As far as good years go, 2019 will be hard to top for Megan Rapinoe as, after captaining the United States national team to glory in the World Cup, she has now won the Ballon d’Or.

There were no Spanish representatives within the final 20 list of candidates, although Lieke Martens of Barcelona was on the list of finalists.

Rapinoe made history in the World Cup by being named as the player of the tournament after scoring six goals and contributing three assists.

These performances saw her complete the hat-trick of awards, winning the best player of the tournament, the golden boot and the Ballon d’Or.
