Four Lionesses named in 2022 FIFA FIFPro Women’s World 11

Four England stars made the FIFA FIFPro Women’s World 11 thanks to their starring performances at Euro 2022.

Defenders Lucy Bronze and Leah Williamson, midfielder Keira Walsh and attacker Beth Mead all make the lineup, with best women’s player nominees Alexia Putellas and Alex Morgan also included.

Mead was in the running for the Best FIFA Women’s Player award but lost out to Barcelona and Spain star Putellas.

France international Wendie Renard made the XI for the seventh successive time since the award was launched in 2015. Morgan and Bronze both made their fifth appearances in the XI.

Germany star Lena Oberdorf makes the cut at just 21 years of age, making her the youngest of any player on both the women and men teams.

While Mary Earps won the Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper award, it wasn’t enough for the England and Manchester United stopper to displace Lyon and Chile star Christiane Endler.
