If money, personality and other trappings of reality were no issue, who would you have in your starting XI? With a choice of any player in the world, who would you pick?
That’s basically the theory behind the FIFA FIFPro World XI awards, which has its 2019 team announced tonight.
They always line up as a 4-3-3 (other formations are available) but don’t always produce the most balanced sides.
The awards have been produced by FIFPro, the global body representing footballers, since 2005, but in 2016 FIFA brought it into its ‘FIFA Best’ awards.
So how quickly can you name every player to make it into the World XI sides since 2016? We’re expecting lots of full marks from this one, so time is everything: you’ve got five minutes, but we reckon it can be done in under three.
