Disappointment as Stephanie misses out on Goal of the Year


There was disappointment for footballer Stephanie Roche earlier this evening as she lost out on FIFA’s Goal of the Year to James Rodriguez.

Stephanie attended the Ballon d’Or ceremony today where it was revealed she had gained 33% of the votes while James received 42% and the final 11% going to Robin Van Persie.

Last week it was revealed that the footballer had made the decision to leave Albi, her French club and returned home to Ireland.

She may not have won the award, but something tells us this is just the beginning for Stephanie!
