Kessler is World Player of the Year
 Women's Football News 13 Jan 2015
Nadine Kessler won the FIFA Women's Player of the Year award for the first time at the Ballon D'Or Gala ceremony on Monday. 
The star midfielder, who captained Wolfsburg to the German women's Bundesliga title and a second successive UEFA Women's Champions League crown as well as helping her country qualify for the World Cup Finals and restore themselves as number one in the world rankings.
Kessler, who also won the UEFA Best Women's Player in Europe Award last year, won the vote from the nations' coaches and captains ahead of fellow nominees Marta and Abby Wambach.
It was a double celebration for Wolfsburg with Ralf Kellermann carrying off the FIFA Women's Coach of the Year award but it was not to be for Stephanie Roach, whose brilliant goal for Peamount United had attracted much publicity before the awards, as she finished second in the voting for the FIFA Puskas Award for the best goal of the year behind James Rodriguez' volleyed goal for Colombia against Uruguay in the World Cup.
FIFA have released the list showing how the various coaches and captains voted and surprisingly, Kessler did not feature too often with the British countries. England Head Coach Mark Sampson and captain Steph Houghton both voted for Frankfurt and Spain playmaker Veronica Boquete, Scotland coach Anna Signeul opted for Japan's Aya Miyama and captain Gemma Fay picked Kessler, whilst new Wales coach Jayne Ludlow's choice was Kessler and captain Jessica Fishlock voted for another Japanese international, Nahomi Kawasumi.
