Vivianne Miedema Nominated for BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year


Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has been nominated for the BBC’s Women’s Footballer of the Year Prize. The Dutch forward forms part of a 5 player shortlist that also includes Julie Ertz (USA and Chicago Red Stars), Megan Rapinoe (USA and Reign FC), Lucy Bronze (England and Lyon) and Sam Kerr (Australia and Chelsea).

Miedema broke the WSL goalscoring record last season with 22 goals as the Gunners swept to the title. She already has 14 in this season’s WSL and is the current leading scorer in the Champions League for 2019-20. Viv was also part of the Netherlands side that finished runners-up in last summer’s World Cup.

The winner will be decided by public vote and voting closes on Monday, 2nd March at 9am. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 24th March. You can (and should) vote for Viv at this link.

At least this one is not confined to journalists, professionals & pundits. Let the people vote… long as it’s for Viv?


100% deserving, Viv is a monster on the pitch and is just 23.. though I think Rapinoe might take it away


Done. Good luck to Viv, stiff competition there, but I have a sneaky feeling Viv don’t care bout no award….. So…. ??

I think you may be right. She is already no 01 in Lisa’s eyes 🙂

I voted for her, she is fantastic and only 23!
Unfortunately I think Rapinoe might win it, great footballer but I don’t care for her personality.


Why do they even bother with open voting when an arsenal player is in the running. We all know what’s going to happen ?
