USA striker Wambach wins top FIFA gong

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.
