The newest edition of the FIFA World XI has predictably sparked outrage.
Marcelo spent most of last season on the bench, Modric was hopelessly out of form and Ramos was part of a Los Blancos defence that conceded more league goals than Leganes.
There was also the bizarre absence of any Manchester City players, despite Pep Guardiola's side winning a domestic treble.
So with that in mind, we've tried to set the record straight by providing the XI that should have been rewarded for their efforts by international captains, coaches and the media.

We can't please everyone, but it certainly looks a whole better than the official XI.
GK - Alisson Becker
Don't worry, Alisson keeps his place. Although, Jan Oblak selected as the fifth best goalkeeper in the world was rather absurd.
RB - Trent Alexander-Arnold
Ramos at right-back? Have some shame. Alexander-Arnold has quickly established himself as arguably the best player in his position in world football.
His assists and gritty defending were key to Liverpool's Champions League triumph and dominant displays in the Premier League.
CB - Virgil van Dijk
Of course Van Dijk keeps his place. What do you think we are, monsters?
CB - Aymeric Laporte
Matthijs de Ligt enjoyed a stunning breakthrough season at Ajax, but let's not forget just how good Laporte was for City.
The Frenchman was the defensive rock that allowed the rest of the team to attack with free will and he chipped in with some crucial goals as well.
LB - Andrew Robertson
Marcelo over Robertson? Probably the worst call of the lot.
One was warming the Los Blancos bench, while the other was turning Liverpool's left-hand side into a cauldron of doom for opposing wingers - while also assisting for fun.
MID - Bernardo Silva
If you're crowned City's Player of the Season after winning a domestic treble - and named the UEFA Nations League Player of the Tournament - you should be a shoe-in for the FIFA World XI.
But no, Modric somehow kept Bernardo out of the side and it's pretty much impossible to find any excuse as to why that has happened. Do these people watch football?
MID - Frenkie de Jong
Consistently world-class for both Ajax and Holland. Deserves all the praise he is currently getting.
MID - Eden Hazard
He's obviously not a midfielder, but we'll let Hazard keep his place after his exceptional final season with Chelsea.
RW - Raheem Sterling
We've decided to omit Kylian Mbappe and it was not easy. The Frenchman scored goals for fun in 2018/19, but Sterling just has the edge.
He seemed to turn up in every big game for City and has quickly become Guardiola's key attacking threat.
CF - Lionel Messi
The best. Need we say any more?
LW - Sadio Mane
So it was out of Mane and Mohamed Salah to take Cristiano Ronaldo's spot, a difficult decision for anyone.
Both scored 22 Premier League goals in 2018/19, but Mane's all-round contribution was just slightly better, establishing himself as arguably the best out-and-out winger in world football right now.News Now - Sport News
