It's been a year rife with individual honors for two-time World Cup winner Rapinoe.
The 34-year-old finished joint-top of the scoring charts at the World Cup alongside Morgan and England's Ellen White, and she was awarded the Golden Boot for having played the fewest minutes of the three. The 158-time-capped Rapinoe also took home the Golden Ball as the tournament's best player, beating out Bronze and American Rose Lavelle.
