England goalkeeper Mary Earps took home the Golden Glove after keeping three clean sheets at the finals, while Japan‘s Hinata Miyazawa wins the Golden Boot and Spain’s Salma Paralluelo was named as the Young Player of the Tournament.
She was also named as the best player in the Champions League in 2022-23, propelling her into the running to win the next Ballon d’Or, which has been won on the past two occasions by her Spain and Barcelona teammate Alexia Putellas.
Bonmatí’s case for further individual honours will only be strengthened by her performances in Australia and New Zealand as Spain won the World Cup for the first time, matching the men’s achievement in 2010.
The 25-year-old started all seven matches for Spain at the tournament, scoring three times and providing two assists.
FIFA’s Technical Study Group, which is led by former USWNT coach Jill Ellis, are in charge of deciding the awards.
Japan’s Miyazawa scored five times in five games to take the Golden Boot, but her goal scoring streak was cut short due to a quarterfinal defeat to Sweden, who went on to finish third.
Finally, 19-year-old Paralluelo was named as the Young Player of the Tournament for her impact on Spain’s run to the trophy.
The Barcelona forward scored the winning goal in the quarterfinal win over the Netherlands and the opener against Sweden in the last four.
