There are few players as enigmatic, nor as emblematic of their team, as Megan Rapinoe. A force of nature both on and off the pitch, the iconic No15 led the Stars and Stripes to a second successive FIFA Women’s World Cup™ triumph with an inspirational series of performances. Her ability to score crucial goals at crucial moments – in a tight round of 16 game against Spain, against the hosts France in the quarter-final and in the France 2019 final itself – saw her claim both the adidas Golden Ball and Golden Boot at the global finals.

Rapinoe can now add The Best FIFA Women’s Player to her long list of accolades: a two-time world champion, a hugely-decorated international superstar and an inspiration to millions.
