Alexia Putellas won Best FIFA Award over Beth Mead.
Alexia Putellas has been crowned The Best FIFA Women’s Player for the second year in a row, beating out Beth Mead and Alex Morgan to the coveted award. Putellas’ impressive performances throughout the year have earned her recognition, cementing her place as one of the top players in women’s football.
She is an inspiration to many and her success is a reminder of how far women’s football has come in recent years. Alexia Putellas of Spain has been named The Best FIFA Women’s Player 2019 after receiving 50 points from coaches, captains, journalists and fans. This is the first time that a Spanish player has won the award.
The battle for the title was close between Alexia Putellas and her fellow nominees Beth Mead of England and Megan Rapinoe of USA, who both finished with 37 points each. It was only after the votes from coaches, captains, journalists and fans were counted that Alexia Putellas emerged as the winner.
The Best FIFA Women’s Player award has always been a competitive one, but this year it looks like the competition will be even more intense. Alexia Putellas and Beth Mead have both had to battle back from ACL injuries, and it is unclear if they will be able to make a full recovery in time for next year’s awards ceremony. With both players out of the running, a new set of contenders will have to emerge in order to compete for the prestigious title.
