Lyon defender Lucy Bronze is among the 20 nominees for the Ballon d’Or Féminin.

Bronze spent four years of her career in Merseyside. Two years in Everton and two years in Liverpool.

She was unable to win any honours with the Toffees.

The 28-year-old won two FA WSL titles with the Reds and was awarded the PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year in the 2013/14 season.

Bronze helped the French giants to a treble last campaign.

The England international was also awarded UEFA’s Women’s Player of the Year in 2018/19.

The defender has garnered 79 caps for her national team, scoring nine goals in the process.

She was a prominent figure in England’s 2019 World Cup squad.
