An Irish woman could win FIFA's Goal of the Year award. Stephanie Roche plays international football for Ireland. She is one of three people on the list. The others are Robin van Persie and James Rodriquez. The list started with ten players. After Ms Roche heard the news, she told reporters: "It's been a crazy day." Roche scored her goal for her old team in 2013. It is now an Internet hit, with over 2.5 million views.

Ms Roche thanked everyone for voting for her. She is proud to be the first woman on FIFA's list. She said: "That is a great achievement and something I'm delighted to say I have done." She explained that: "French TV came down to watch me watching the results….I was the first name called out….To be in the top three is brilliant." Roche's goal has changed her career and her life. She is now a professional footballer in France.
