Angerer Wins European Footballer of the Year Award

Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer was named the European Player of the Year in Switzerland on Thursday.

The 34 year old, currently playing for Australian W-League side Brisbane Roar, clinched the UEFA award following a live vote by a panel of leading football journalists.

Angerer, who was facing stiff competition from Germany teammate Lena Goessling and Swedish striker Lotta Schelin, saved a penalty in each half as Die Manschaaft clinched their sixth consecutive Women’s European crown with a 1-0 win over Norway in July.
