Kerr named alongside Messi with illustrious honour


//

Sam Kerr has cemented her status as a global sporting icon by taking home two awards at the prestigious 2019 ESPYS.

Joining the likes of Serena Williams and Tiger Woods among athletes to be nominated in their respective sports, Kerr was named the Best International Women's Soccer Player as well as the Best NWSL Player.

With her win, Kerr became the first Australian athlete to be named Best International Women's Soccer Player in consecutive seasons.

Of the Non-TV ESPYS handed out, Kerr joined Barcelona star Lionel Messi (Best International Men's Player), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Best MLS Player) and Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich (Best MLB Player) in a prestigious class.

The awards cap off what has been a sensational season for the 25-year-old who slammed in nine goals in her eight appearances for the Chicago Red Stars so far this season.

The Perth native is the NWSL's all-time leading scorer and also holds the record for the most goals in a single NWSL season.

With the individual honours now in the bag, Kerr will be hoping to add another NWSL Shield to her trophy after leading the Western New Yourk Flash to one in 2013.

Kerr's NWSL goal-scoring tally was coupled with her eight goals for the Matildas in the calendar year, including a remarkable four against Jamaica at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Australia's world champion surfer Stephanie Gilmore missed out on the best female action sports athlete at the annual ESPY awards function.
