The World Cup has come to an end with plenty of memories to be taken away from the spiritual home of football, Brazil.
To celebrate, GiveMeSport contributor Alex Cooper has decided to treat you all to his very own World Cup best XI.
The team chosen is based around the popular 4-2-3-1 formation and I have not chosen a left-back and added another central defender. It was too hard for me to chose between just two central defenders with so many great performers.
However, if I were to have chosen a left-back it would have been Holland's very own Daley Blind due to his high work rate, and for the two incredible passess, which assisted a goal each for Arjen Robben and captain Robin van Persie.
