STEPHANIE ROCHE IS RUNNER-UP IN THE FIFA PUSKÁS AWARD

Stephanie Roche of Peamount United is runner-up to James Rodriguez of Columbia in the FIFA Puskás Award for goal of the year. Stephanie received 33% of the public vote to Rodriguez's 42% of the 3.3 million cast. Robin Van Persie came third. That Stephanie Roche made the final three for her wonderful goal scored in the Bus Eireann Women's National League in front of approx 95 people is quite extraordinary. She had been hoping to become the first female winner of the Award: http://www.fifa.com/ballon-dor/puskas-award/index.html
