  • Kellond-Knight nominated for AFC award

Matildas midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight could cap off a stunning 2015 by being named the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) women's player of the year.

The 25-year-old, who was named in the tournament's all-star side, has been shortlisted for the award alongside Japan's Aya Miyama and Rumi Utsugi.

Her form in the World Cup, where she picked up two player-of-the-match awards in Australia's journey to the quarter-finals, helped earn her a two-year contract with German club Turbine Potsdam.
