The moment went viral, and fans vowed to print a picture of her four-letter yell on T-shirts, a nod to Nike’s refusal to make a shirt with her name on.
Man United’s Earps won the Golden Glove after conceding just four goals over seven games.
Gaffer Wiegman said: “I think Mary´s performance has been really good. She has had crucial saves a lot of games in this World Cup, and before that, too.”
She was named the world’s best goalkeeper in women’s football by Fifa in February and is a Euro 2022 champion.
She said of the accolade: “I am proud. It’s very hard to achieve. But I would trade it for a gold medal any day. Disgusted that we fell short.”
Following the final, Nike said it was “working towards solutions for future tournaments” regarding a Mary Earps replica shirt.
Earps — dubbed ‘Mary, Queen of Stops’ — previously called their decision not to produce a World Cup one as “disappointing and very hurtful”.
