Female footballers worldwide voted for their FIFPro World XI consisting of women only. Celia Sasic is one of the eleven players who were selected by their peers.

The former German national team player was the first one to receive her World XI award.

“Solo, Renard, Klingenberg, Buchanan, Johnston, Lloyd, Henry, Miyama, Le Sommer, Mittag ... Wow, this is a great team”, Sasic reacted on her inclusion in the best female players’ team.

“For me it is a big honour to be a part of the first FIFPro Women’s World XI and to receive this trophy. It is all the more special, because it were the players themselves who voted for this award.”

Looking at the facts, it is obvious why Sasic was chosen by her peers. She had a remarkable 2015. The 27-year old striker conquered the Women’s Champions League with her team FFC Frankfurt. She was named best player of that competition and best player of the final. She was top scorer in the German Bundesliga, Champions League and the Women’s World Cup. Finally, she was one of three nominees for FIFA’s female player of the year award, finishing second after Carli Lloyd.

After the World Cup in Canada, Sasic finished her playing career. She is expecting a baby in June.

In the coming weeks, FIFPro, the official representative of 65,000 professional footballers worldwide, will visit the ten other members of the Women’s World XI.
