Lyon have 11 current players on the list of 55 players who received most votes for the 2020 FIFA FIFPRO Women’s World 11, while eight Chelsea stars make the grade.

Among the eleven players from Lyon are seven former award winners: Lucy Bronze, Kadeisha Buchanan, Ada Hegerberg, Amandine Henry, Eugenie Le Sommer, Dzsennifer Marozsan and Wendie Renard. The last one is the only player who has been voted onto all four previous World 11s. Renard’s teammates Ellie Carpenter and Delphine Cascarino make their first appearance on the List of
55.

There are 15 new names on the List of 55, including five Chelsea players (Ann-Katrin Berger, Erin Cuthbert, Magdalena Eriksson, Bethany England and So-Yun Ji), USA’s Christen Press and Tabitha Chawinga from Malawi, who is the first African player in the history of the List of 55.
