2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or, Girl-Style: What's Missing Here?

Announced whenever (or yesterday, I think), here's FIFA's short shorts...uh, short LIST of women footballers for this year's big award: Camille Abily (France), Miho Fukumoto (Japan), Carli Lloyd (USA), Marta (Brazil), Aya Miyama (Japan), Alex Morgan (USA), Megan Rapinoe (USA), Homare Sawa (Japan), Christine Sinclair (Canada), Abby Wambach (USA).

Shocked? Probably not. But, I don't know, doesn't it seem like a few names are missing? Sorta big names? Or big-enough names, like these?

Lotta Schelin

Sonia Bompastor

Anja Mittag

No? Not working for you? All right, haters, but you've got to consider that Marta is still in the running, so Lotta and Sonia and Anja really ain't that far off from the group.

Bah, FIFA. Whatevs.
