With football ready to produce some Christmas crackers over the festive season, here is an Xmas-inspired XI.
Whilst some people are out enjoying the holiday season or busy writing Christmas cards and wrapping presents, we've been hard to work.
In a Christmas tree formation (4-3-2-1) the squad contains Champions League winners as well as some wise men, a king and one cracker.
Christmas is a time for giving and we would love you to give us your best Christmas-themed players.
