Steph Roche is meeting some football royalty in the build-up to the Ballon d'Or ceremony

You’ll be even more jealous of Roche when you see some of the legends she’s bumped into.

WE ARE A FEW hours away from seeing whether Steph Roche’s screamer can beat Robin van Persie and James Rodriguez to the Puskas Award but win or lose, it looks like Roche is enjoying mixing with some footballing legends.

Naturally, all the stars are out for the Ballon d’Or ceremony and Roche has taken the chance to get some memorable photos.

She’s met Alessandro Del Piero, who remarkably looks better now than he did ten years ago.

She also ran into World Cup winning captain Philipp Lahm.

And she posed for a photo with her main rival for the Puskas Award, James Rodriguez.
