The great season of the women's FC Barcelona that last year won the treble: the Iberdrola League, the Queen's Cup and the women's UEFA Champions League, owes a lot to the talent of the player born in Mollet del Vallès who has become, thanks to her exceptional season,the player with the most caps wearing the USA national team shirt and also the second all-time scorer for the national team.

Other categories and a little disappointment

The disappointment came in not seeing Alexia Putellas in the FIFA FIFPRO World11 women's eleven, the award chosen by professional footballers around the world. In the selected squad, where the inexhaustible Marta stands outthere was no USA representative and only one player who plays for a team in the Iberdrola League: the Argentine player from At. Madrid Estefania Banini.

In the men's categories, it is worth noting the award for Robert Lewandowski, whom FIFA has made the alternative to Lionel Messi in terms of award-winning male footballers.The best men's eleven was full of well-known stars, such as the Austrian defender David Alaba who plays for Real Madrid or the extraordinary midfielder of FC Chelsea N'Golo Kanté. There was no USA presence in this section either.

That corruption and match-fixing do not tarnish sporting achievements

The successes achieved by soccer players cannot be tarnished by the cases of corruption and match-fixing that are increasing in the world of sport in general and football in particular. Thefirst Global Report on Corruption in Sport published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime warned of this.

With the The growth of legal sports betting and technological advances such as mobile betting applications, the massive consumption of this activity, especially in young sectors of the population, make sport very attractive for criminal betting networks. The connection between illegal gambling and fixing is undeniable andthe UN office has established mechanisms to address this problem that can only be successful with effective support from state regulatory authorities such as the DGOJ, which play a fundamental role in this regard.
