United States goalkeeper Hope Solo was among the 10 women nominated for the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year Award. She will be competing along Abby Wambach and Marta of Brazil, a skillful Brazilian, who has won the award for the past five years. Will this be the year that Marta will be dethroned as the winner of FIFA’s women’s world player given that Hope Solo 2011 FIFA nomination has a big impact on the survey?
The United States has three players on the list, they are Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and Abby Wambach. Japan, the 2011 Women’s World Cup winner, has Homare Sawa, the player of the tournament and top scorer in Germany, and Aya Miyama on a 10-woman shortlist. France playmaker Louisa Necib also made the shortlist chosen by FIFA officials and journalists selected by “France Football” magazine.
Marta, who helped the Western New York Flash win the Women’s Professional Soccer title last season, is seeking to win the FIFA award for a sixth straight year. She is the only player selected from the Brazil squad eliminated by the U.S. in the World Cup quarterfinals.
Soccer pro Hope Solo 2011 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year nominee barely escaped elimination in her last performance of “Dancing with the Stars,” unfortunately, her team the magicJack, is being shut down by Women’s Professional Soccer after the owner had been accused by the league of violations ranging from “unprofessional and disparaging treatment of his players to failure to pay his bills.”
