La Liga stars dominate World XI

The 2012 FIFPro World XI was announced during the FIFA Ballon d’Or gala, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo among the standout names.

The FIFPro World XI is a prize from the players for the players, with FIFPro inviting all professional footballers in the world to compose their best team of the year.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas gets the nod between the sticks, while his club team-mates Sergio Ramos and Marcelo have made it into the defence alongside Barca duo Dani Alves and Gerard Pique.

The three-man midfield consists of Madrid star Xabi Alonso, as well as Spain team-mates Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

Unsurprisingly, both Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona ace Lionel Messi have made the cut up front, with Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao completing the side.

FIFPro World XI (4-3-3): Iker Casillas; Dani Alves, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo; Xabi Alonso, Xavi, Andres Iniesta; Lionel Messi, Radamel Falcao, Cristiano Ronaldo

    ths is hogwash. There should be consistency in the criteria for selecting the year’s best player. When ronaldo was top goal scorer, goals ddnt count. Now messi is top goalscorer he’s the best. Wat trophy did he win in 2012 that affords him the award. Copa del rey is just like the fa cup. So should we give it to drogba then because he won it and the champions league. Consistency. They should explain the criteria used to vote for these things. Then we can really ascertain the real world’s best footballer.
