Now that the World Cup is over we can debate this in earnest. Of course, we all know Mia Hamm will get the award whether deserved or not - but who SHOULD get it? My pick is Maren Meinert - WUSA MVP, led her team to the WUSA regular-season title, then comes back in storybook fashion to lead Germany to a World Cup. So, of course she'll finish third behind Mia Hamm and Sun Wen Had Sweden won I would have picked Ljungberg (European Champion with Umea IK) and considered Svensson as well. Had the US won I would have considered Hamm and Wambach. Anyone else?
