SKY and BBC - shame on you for not putting this a headline:

I did see Emma Hayes' award mentioned in a BBC headline, but not Tuchel's. Weird.

Did you notice that Mendy was named by FIFA a the world's best keeper? But FIFA did not select him for their world XI.

No, I didn't. Weird :)

But do they actually have a "World XI" ? I can't find it mentioned here:

Chelsea's Edouard Mendy won the award for the Best Fifa men's goalkeeper after a successful first season with the club, including a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League final.

As for the collective awards, Manchester City's Ruben Dias and Kevin de Bruyne joined Chelsea's N'Golo Kante and Jorginho, and Ronaldo, in the Best Fifa men's team of the year.

Men's world XI: Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan/PSG/Italy), David Alaba (Bayern Munich/Real Madrid/Austria), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus/Italy), Ruben Dias (Man City/Portugal), Kevin de Bruyne (Man City/Belgium), Jorginho (Chelsea/Italy), N'Golo Kante (Chelsea/France), Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus/Man Utd/Portugal), Erling Braut Haaland (Borussia Dortmund/Norway), Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich/Poland), Lionel Messi (Barcelona/PSG/Argentina).

Wonder if somehow Messi will still be winning awards after he retires. Seems to me nobody even bothers to check how and where he plays these days, they just name him.

That's FIFPRO. As I understand it's the players XI award.

I see. BBC said it was 'the best FIFA men's team'. Didn't mention Fifpro.

That would explain it
