With just 16 days left in the World Cup, I have shared my dream team. Real Madrid and Barcelona dominate the line-up.
Players selected below are on the basis of their performances with both club and country in the recent season.
Here is the dream team, agree?
Iker Casillas (Goalkeeper – Real Madrid and Spain)
Real Madrid captain Casillas have once again regained his spot in the best team after winning the Champions League few days ago.
Dani Alves (Right back – Barcelona and Brazil)
The Brazilian who won FIFA Confederation Cup last summer is once again included in this list. He did not win a single trophy with Barcelona in the recent season but still there is no one who can challenge him for this spot.
Sergio Ramos (Center back – Real Madrid and Spain)
Ramos can be called as the game changer this season. Due to him Madrid won Champions League, his stoppage time goal which gave Madrid the trophy will be remembered forever.
Gerard Pique (Center back – Barcelona and Spain)
Another Barcelona defender Pique who has already won World Cup is eyeing another international trophy.
Philipp Lahm (Left back – Bayern Munich and Germany)
Germany and Bayern Munich captain Lahm is the right back for this line up, he can also play as a defensive midfielder.
Yaya Toure (Defensive midfielder –Manchester City and Ivory Coast)
Manchester City top scorer of 2013-2014 season with 20 goals is the only player from Ivory Coast.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Right wing – Real Madrid and Portugal)
Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo deserves a spot without a doubt. He made a new record by scoring 17 goals in a single Champions League season.
Andrés Iniesta (Attacking midfielder – Barcelona and Spain)
A trophy less season for the Spaniard but still managed to be in this line up. This World Cup might be his last World Cup.
Franck Ribery (Left wing – Bayern Munich and France)
Ribery made only 22 appearances in Bundesliga in the recent season but still managed to score 10 important goals.
Luis Suarez (Left wing –Liverpool and Uruguay)
13-14 Premier League best player and top scorer Luis Suarez definitely deserves a spot after his exceptional performances in recent season.
Lionel Messi (Striker – Barcelona and Argentina)
Four times Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi will play alongside Suarez in this line-up, the Argentine player who had an injury in the last season was still capable of finishing the season with 28 goals in La Liga.
