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.
