Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski were named in the attack for the 2020 FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11.
The trio were all finalists for The Best FIFA Men’s Player award and so were unsurprisingly included in the FIFPro Men’s World11.
The chief shock elsewhere in the team saw Alisson preferred in goal to Manuel Neuer.
Neuer, who captained Bayern Munich to the treble, had earlier been named The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper, beating Alisson and Jan Oblak to the award.
The Germany skipper had said: “It’s one of the best years of my career, of course. We were so confident with our team and it’s amazing what we have done in this year, 2020, especially in the summer when we played together in Lisbon [in the Champions League].”
Congratulations to all! Well deserved!

In a team voted for by the players, Alisson was joined by Liverpool team-mates Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara.
Thiago spent the majority of the year with Bayern, who were represented by Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich as well as Lewandowski.
Sergio Ramos and Kevin De Bruyne completed the line-up.
