CONCACAF PLAYER OF THE YEAR

12/23/2014 12:32 PM -

Western New York Flash and U.S. Women’s National Team forward Abby Wambach has been named the 2014 CONCACAF Female Player of the Year, it was announced today.

This year, Wambach helped lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to the 2014 CONCACAF Championship, scoring four goals in the title game en route to a 6-0 win over Costa Rica. The win also qualified the USWNT for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

In the group stage, the American totaled three goals, including the lone score in the USA’s 1-0 opening win over Trinidad & Tobago. With seven total goals in the tournament, Wambach also earned the Golden Boot.

Wambach had a shortened season with the Flash, after sustaining a knee injury early on. However, the Rochester native still finished third on the team in scoring with six goals over 10 matches. She also totaled four assists on the year.

The CONCACAF Awards are designed to honor the year’s outstanding performers and achievements in confederation-sanctioned competitions involving national teams at all levels and age categories, including FIFA World Cup matches and qualifying for both genders. Performances also eligible for recognition included those achieved in professional club football leagues within the CONCACAF Member Associations, as well as the CONCACAF Champions League.

Voting is equally weighted among Member Association women’s and men’s national team coaches and captains, media and fans.
