Mead scored six goals at the last Euro, where England won and raked in their first senior title since England won the World Cup in 1966. "It's a huge honor for me to win this title," she said in an emotional voice, while dedicating the award to her mother, who has cancer, "I couldn't To achieve this without the help of my teammates, without my father and my mother.

"And most of all, it is dedicated to women's sports, which is moving in the right direction.

Let's keep pushing girls and girls forward, and let's keep doing the right things."

Last year, Emma Radukano won the prize, and for the first time since 1972, two women have won the title two years in a row. "I can't believe I won this prize," she said immediately, "and it's still about the people's choice, the vote ... Now I can die."
