Big congratulations to Reggae Girlz
and Manchester City
striker, Khadija Shaw
, on being named as one of the nominees for the 2023 Women’s Ballon d’Or. The nominees were announced on Sept. 6 by France Football.
With this nomination, Shaw becomes the first Jamaican national senior team player, male or female, to receive such a nod. She goes up against talents such as Nigeria and Barcelona star, Asisat Oshoala, Colombian starlet, Linda Caicedo, and Spanish World Cup winner, Aitana Bonmati, who is considered the favourite to win the award.
Shaw scored a career-high 31 goals in all competitions last season for Manchester City, earning a spot on the Women’s PFA Team of the Year. She also led the Reggae Girlz to an improbable knockout round berth at the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
