It was a proud night for Premier League players at The Best FIFA Football Awards 2022, with five being named in the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World XI.

The team was chosen with votes from fellow players based on performances between 8 August 2021 and 18 December 2022, with the line-up being revealed during FIFA's ceremony on Monday.

It is the second year in a row where five Premier League stars have been named in the team. 

This year’s chosen few are Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, Manchester United midfielder Casemiro and Manchester City trio Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo, the latter currently on loan at Bayern Munich.

“Any time your fellow professionals vote to recognise your ability, it means so much,” said De Bruyne. “To be in this World XI for the third year in a row really is fantastic and truly humbling.”

Haaland has been named in the team for a second successive year.

“I’m grateful to be recognised as one of the best,” said the Man City striker. “Nothing beats being voted for by other players.”

There was further delight for another Premier League player as Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez won The Best FIFA Men's Goalkeeper Award.

The 30-year-old claimed the prize after starring at the FIFA World Cup 2022, saving four spot-kicks across two penalty shootouts as Argentina lifted the trophy.

Everyone at the Premier League congratulates the players for their achievements.
