USA striker Abby Wambach has been voted the Fifa women's world player of the year at the Ballon d'Or gala in Zurich.
"Winning any individual award is a product of the team you play for," she said. "I've never scored a goal without receiving a pass from my team-mates."
Sweden's ex-USA coach Pia Sundhage was named women's coach of the year.
The award capped a fantastic year for the 32 year old, who scored five goals to help the USA defend their Olympic title and won the Golden Ball, given to the tournament's best player.
