Kerr is among 10 nominees for Female Player of the Year for the awards which recognise the top performers in the CONCACAF region, with the 24 year-old qualifying through her club team Sky Blue FC in the NWSL.

She joins a candidate list that includes names such as Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Becky Sauerbrunn, with the award decided on by national team coaches and captains, media members and a fan vote.

Kerr appears a strong possibility to take the award after topping the fan vote, receiving 59% of the poll, followed by American striker Alex Morgan with 34%.
