There’s a case to be made whether one should start considering two-time Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas one of the greatest female footballers of all time. The Spain and Barcelona Femení skipper has already won every major trophy and individual honour available at the club level, cementing her place as a modern great.
Despite being out with injury for much of last season after her heroics for club and country the season prior, Putellas won her second consecutive Ballon d’Or. Her timely return before the 2023 World Cup will give La Roja that much-needed boost given their young squad.
