FIFPRO and FIFA have announced the 23 players who received the most votes for the 2021 FIFA FIFPRO Womenโ€™s World XI.

Despite having a stellar season with FC Barcelona, Asisat Oshoala missed out of the 23-woman squad picked by professional footballers worldwide.

However, Cameroonian international, Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene made her debut on the list becoming only the second African player to appear since Tabitha Chawinga in 2020.
