Casemiro celebrates World 11 inclusion

Tuesday 28 February 2023 18:26

Casemiro shared celebrations of his FIFPRO World 11 inclusion with his Manchester United team-mates at Carrington on Tuesday.

The Brazilian – and United Women goalkeeper Mary Earps – were present at FIFA’s The Best awards ceremony in Paris on Monday evening, in what turned out to be a successful evening for both Reds.

Earps was named the Women’s Goalkeeper of the Year, after a stunning 2022, in which she won the European Championship with England Lionesses.

Casemiro, on the other hand, appeared on stage with the likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe to claim his trophy for being voted into the FIFPRO World 11 by his peers.

The accolade, which recognised his La Liga and Champions League exploits with former club Real Madrid, was a fitting follow-up to his Carabao Cup final goal versus Newcastle on Sunday at Wembley.

Following his achievement, Casemiro returned to Carrington ahead of Wednesday’s Emirates FA Cup fifth-round tie against West Ham at Old Trafford.

The Brazilian shared his celebrations with his United team-mates, posing for an image with the rest of the squad, and his trophy.

The togetherness among the Reds is palpable, and the image is another indicator of that.

If individuals succeed, we succeed together.

Congratulations once more, Casemiro, here’s to many more great achievements!
