Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has called for the world’s best female goalkeepers to be recognised at next year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony, after being awarded the Yashin trophy in Paris on Monday night.

Despite introducing the women’s Ballon d’Or in 2018, with the Lyon star Ada Hegerberg scooping the inaugural prize and being followed this year by US co-captain Megan Rapinoe, France Football are yet to acknowledge the best young female player or goalkeeper as per the men's respective trophies.

After collecting the award at the Théâtre du Châtelet in the French capital, Becker told Sportsmail, ‘Yes, why not? We are speaking about making everything [on an] equal level, both women’s and men’s. It’s a good question. I think we can work towards that.’
