Abby Wambach carries off World prize
 Women's Football News 8 Jan 2013
 
Abby Wambach has been voted as FIFA Women's World Player of the Year for 2012. 
 
The United States striker finished top of the annual poll voted for by the coaches and captains of the 209 FIFA Member Associations and a selected group of media. Marta finished as runner-up for the award and Alex Morgan was in third place.
 
Wambach led her country to the gold medal in the Olympic Games during the summer and netted five times during the course of the tournament, including a penalty in the memorable semi final victory over Canada at Old Trafford.
 
She received the award at the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala in Zurich where the FIFA World Coach of the Year award for the women's football went to then USA Coach Pia Sundhage, now in charge of the Swedish national team.
 
The coaches and captains of each country voted for their own personal top three choices and points were awarded accordingly to decide the overall outcome.
 
Of the British nations, only Scotland coach Anna Signuel picked Wambach as her first choice. Hope Powell's vote went to Olympic Final hero Carli Lloyd while both Jarmo Matikainen and Alfie Wylie chose Miho Fukumoto of Japan.
 
England captain Casey Stoney voted for Christine Sinclair as her first choice whilst Alex Morgan received the nod from her Scottish counterpart Gemma Fay. Northern Ireland's Ashley Hutton cast her vote for Megan Rapinoe and Wales skipper Jessica Fishlock selected French playmaker Camille Abily.
