Rapinoe's powerful speech

From Navin James (India)
Megan Rapinoe is no stranger to the spotlight. After wowing audiences at the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019, she did the same again at The Best FIFA Football Awards in Milan. After collecting The Best FIFA Women's Player 2019 in recognition for a year in which she won the adidas Golden Ball and Golden Boot at France 2019, she delivered an incredibly powerful speech to once again captivate world football. It's no wonder FabFooties sent through this submission.

Klopp's revealing sit-down

From Kubra Keskindakour (Turkey)
In keeping with the theme of The Best FIFA Football Awards, kubrailefutbol submitted The Best FIFA Men's Coach Jurgen Klopp's piece with The Players' Tribune this week. The Liverpool head coach gave an insightful interview - from his wish for the Rocky films to be shown in public schools to encouraging others in world football to join him in pledging one per cent of his yearly salary to Common Goal, which empowers football NGOs around the world.

Raja rally round fellow fan

From Caolan Gormley (Republic of Ireland)
Football has an incredible ability to bring people together and this is undoubtedly reflected in KelanGormley's submission this week. A fan of Raja Casablanca, who is currently in hospital being treated for cancer, was unable to make it the stadium to watch his beloved team and thus experience the atmosphere of the Moroccan club's support in the stands. Instead, the support came to him. Fans gathered in their numbers outside the hospital in an incredible showing of solidarity.

Canada's Class of 2012 honoured

From Lisa Durel-Wilcox (Canada)
Olympic fever will spread across the world next year with Tokyo 2020 - and football fans will be eager to see the Men's and Women's Olympic Football Tournaments unfold. Celebrating a team of Olympics past, the Canadian side featuring Christine Sinclair, Diana Matheson et al which claimed bronze at London 2012 were honoured by the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in the Team Category as part of the Class of 2019.
