Germany team coach Joachim Löw was voted Best National Coach of the decade alongside awards for Manuel Neuer and Dzsenifer Marozsán, who picked up Best Men’s Goalkeeper and Best Women’s Playmaker of the 2010s respectively.
Neuer’s Germany teammate Marc-André ter Stegen came in eighth position in the men’s goalkeeper rankings. Marozsán beat Brazil's Marta and France's Camille Abily to the top prize, while her teammate Lena Goeßling finished sixth in the women’s playmaker rankings.
