Nominees for FIFA Women's Player of the Year

I've got this weird mental block - I always have to remind myself whether it's CHRISTIE Rampone, or CHRISTINE Rampone. (It's Christie.)

Embarrassing, right? I wonder how people like, say, FIFA deal with it. Turns out they have a very simple way of making sure they don't make that mistake.

But you can't really argue with who they did, except for Cristiane, who, in the unlikely event she won, would probably be the first Player of the Year in any sport who was released on a free transfer that season.

And people wonder why I give out my own CONCACAF awards. Who else is there?
