The Hermann Trophy is "the Heisman Trophy of soccer".
Outside of the US, it is "the Heisman Trophy of football".
Don't forget it would also be "Heisman Trophy of soccer" also in Canada, most of Australia and parts of New Zealand and South Africa.
As a side note, the word "soccer" actually originated in England to differentiate Rugby Football from Association Football in the 1860's but then was dropped and the sports became known as Rugby and Football.
