Sam Kerr nominated for 2022 Ballon d’Or

CommBank Matildas star Sam Kerr has been nominated for the 2022 Ballon d’Or Féminin, nominated for the fourth consecutive time.

The Australian captain is one of 20 nominees in the running to claim the prestigious individual award.

It comes after another history-making season for club and country for the striker, claiming back-to-back WSL Golden Boots with Chelsea and becoming the all-time leading goalscorer for Australia earlier in the year.
