Lucy Bronze has been named BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year for 2020.

The England and Lyon player picked up the award for the second time in her career after also winning it in 2018.

Winning a trophy twice is special because it’s so much harder,” Bronze told the BBC World Service.

“I look at the list of nominees for this award – before the public didn’t maybe know as much about the players – and now I think: ‘Everybody knows who these girls are.

That’s definitely pretty special. Things have changed so much since the World Cup, and next year with a home Euros it’s something that can change even more and get even bigger, especially for us in England.

“In the past two years I’ve changed so much as a person and a leader. I’d like to think my football has improved a bit – but as a person I’ve grown up a lot. I’m coming up to 30 so I have to.

“When I was younger I just wanted to play and win, but now I’m taking on a bigger role to help the team win at England and Lyon.”

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema was voted second and USA World Cup winner Megan Rapinoe was third.

She is the second player to win the award twice as Lyon teammate Ada Hegerberg has also won it on two occasions.

Asisat Oshoala of Barcelona and Arsenal’s Kim Little are the other winners of the prestigious award.
