Women's World Player of the Year

We’re getting to the business end of things now.
The winner of the women’s World Player of the Year is... Carli Lloyd!
Great recognition for the American, who played such a key role in the USA’s World Cup win.
She’s very emotional, but chokes back the tears just enough to say:
“It’s an honour. This has always been a dream of mine.”

Neymar ready to party

The third and final Ballon d’Or nominee is up to speak.
Neymar is asked if he’s enjoying his time at Barcelona.
“We all share responsibility,” he says.
“It’s an honour... it’s not hard when you have such great players around you.”
Any final words?
“To be here, is a dream come true.
“If I win, we party. If I don’t win, we party.”
Top man.


Puskas Award

Over 1.6million people have voted on the Puskas Award for goal of the year, says James Nesbitt, annoyingly.
Japan legend Hidetoshi Nakata announces the winner... and it’s Wendell Lira!
The unknown Brazilian looks a bit shell-shocked, as well he might.
