    Another day, another award for Matildas star Sam Kerr.

    In the same week she was named Australia’s Sportswoman of the Year, the West Australian was named the MVP of the National Women’s Soccer League in the US.

    The 24-year-old attacker scored 17 goals and had four assists in her season with the New Jersey-based Sky Blue FC.

    During the season Kerr became the first NWSL player to score four goals in a game against the Seattle Reign on August 19.

    Kerr rallied the Sky Blue from a three-goal deficit to beat the Reign 5-4.

    Kerr was also named in the league’s Team of the Year.

        Ditto “hogdriller”,

        Just to add, Sam has worked so hard after all the injuries she has endured over the last three years, an amazing athlete to watch and admire.
        Australia are well poised to take on the world with players of the calibre of Sam.

        MVP, Most Valuable Player, no mean feat in the USA

              None of them would have made the WCE’s midfield though.

      Quality footballer.
      Quality person.

      Has the courage to move overseas & test herself against the best in the world, rather than so many athletes in Australia, who pretend to be “world class”, but don’t have the mental toughness to even live interstate.
