Lyon's history-making trio of Amandine Henry, Eugenie Le Sommer and Wendie Renard are the proud recipients of the first-ever FIFPro Women's World XI award.

FIFPro representatives are travelling the globe to hand deliver trophies and celebrate the achievements of these players who have been selected by hundreds of their peers from around the world.

“I am very proud to be voted in the FIFPro World XI. It is an honor for me to be a part of this team with all these great players,” said Le Sommer upon hearing the news when first announced back in February.

With three World XI stars to call on, more than any other club in the women's game, Lyon has been irresistible at times and currently tops the French league having scored a whopping 104 goals in 19 matches (average 5.47). Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) sits in second place, three points adrift.

Lyon also has its sights on European glory. An all-French affair with PSG awaits in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League later this month. German clubs, Wolfsburg and Cup holder FFC Frankfurt, will meet in the other half of the draw. The final takes place on May 26.

The French league boasts four members of the World XI, with PSG's German attacker Anja Mittag making up the quartet in what has been a highly successful first season after her switch from Swedish outfit FC Rosengard.

Henry will soon be lost to Lyon after accepting an offer to join Portland Thorns in the United States, where she will link up with another member of the inaugural FIFPro Women's World XI, US international defender Meghan Klingenberg.
