“My eyes filled up straight away and I cried a little. It was so unexpected. I was so happy with winning the World Cup and then a woman approached me and told me I’d won the Bronze Ball. I feel very honoured. I came here to play for the team. It’s just such a big surprise. Normally it’s the attacking players who get these awards, not defenders. I’m so happy and proud. It means a lot to me.”
