FIFPro unveiled their Women’s World XI on Wednesday and it features three current members of the U.S. Women’s National Team and one that remains in exile.
Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Ali Krieger and Hope Solo headline FIFPro’s Women’s World XI, which was selected by 3,200 votes from female players worldwide. The USWNT leads the way with the four selections, while Germany and France each saw two players make the list. In addition, the team features five players from French powerhouse Olympique Lyon, including Morgan, who recently joined the club on loan.
Solo was recognized despite having not played for club or country since August, when she was dismissed from the USWNT after calling Sweden “cowards” in the wake of elimination from the Olympics.
Here’s a closer look at the full list:
GOALKEEPER: Hope Solo (USA, free agent)
DEFENDERS: Leonie Maier (Germany, FC Bayern Munich), Nilla Fischer (Sweden, VfL Wolfsburg), Wendie Renard (France, Olympique Lyonnais), Ali Krieger (USA, Orlando Pride)
