Three City players named in FIFA World 11

FIFA WORLD 11: Three City players have been nominated

FIFA WORLD 11: Three City players have been nominated

Ellen White, Keira Walsh and captain Steph Houghton are among the 55 nominees for this year's FIFA FIFPRO’s Women World 11.

White enjoyed a fine World Cup in France this summer as England made it to the semi-finals before losing to the USA, with the potent striker bagging six goals and finishing as equal top scorer.

22-year-old Walsh was instrumental in City’s two domestic cup successes last season before playing a key role in the Lionesses run to the last four in France.

And Houghton produced perhaps her best season yet in 2018-19. An inspirational leader for both club and country, she continues to be a leading figure in the game. 

The fourth Women’s World XI will be announced on Monday September 23rd during the Best Football Awards in Milan's Scala theatre.

‘Sorry, no girls allowed.’ It’s the phrase that has haunted almost every sports-playing young woman at some point in her life – and sometimes, even omitting the apology.

It’s the reason women’s sport has lagged so far behind its male counterpart for so long, and the reason why so many budding female sports stars give up on their dreams entirely and embark on a new – and often more ‘traditional’ - path.
