World XI: Greatest team of the 21st Century (1)

Published 28 Comments

Selecting a World XI is never a straight-forward task, particularly when attempting to choose the greatest eleven players from a 14-year timeframe.

So many world-class players have lit up the greatest footballing competitions, including the Champions League and the World Cup, since 2000.

This is, of course, a subjective list. However, the players' respective achievements - both team and individual - their influence and their ability to shine in the biggest matches have all been taken into consideration.

Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments' section below. Plenty of debate is both expected and encouraged.
