NYON, Switzerland (AP) - Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer won the inaugural Best Women Player in Europe award on Thursday.
Angerer, who will start her professional career in the United States next year, topped Germany teammate Lena Goessling and Swedish forward Lotta Schelin.
Angerer saved two penalties in the 2013 European Championship final in July, helping Germany defeat Norway 1-0.
The 34-year-old goalkeeper will play in Australia for Brisbane Roar before joining a U.S. team in the National Women's Soccer League.
Angerer says ``it's not official yet which team I will play for, but I will start 2014 in the U.S.''
She won the UEFA award in a vote of journalists from a 10-player shortlist created by coaches from Euro 2013 and women's Champions League teams.
