Cancelo was voted into the 2022 team of the year by his fellow professional footballers from around the world in February 2023.

Speaking to FIFPRO last year about being selected, he said: "It was a dream I had as a child. I've wanted to win it for a long time, and I've achieved it and I'm very happy."
