Chalupny was called one of the "top five players in the world" a few years ago by a former coach. Despite this, she hasn't played for the United States national team in five years, sidelined by a history of concussions. That could change in Brazil, where Chalupny has returned to the U.S. team for a four-team tournament starting Wednesday Dec. 10, 2014, in the capital Brasilia against Brazil, China and Argentina. She's hoping to make the final American team for next year's World Cup in Canada.

New England's Lee Nguyen and Seattle's Obafemi Martins were the other finalists for the award. The 34-year-old Keane had 19 goals and 14 assists while leading the Galaxy's MLS-best offense, providing dangerous attacking and steady leadership for the MLS Cup finalists.
