The footballing world is understandably baffled by FIFA's latest official World XI.
Marcelo was dropped for large parts of the 2018/19 campaign due to his poor form, while Ramos was a constant figure in a defence which leaked goal after goal in La Liga.
Essentially, the duo's seasons were the polar opposite to Liverpool's dynamic defensive pairing of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

But neither were good enough for FIFA's XI, which has left Liverpool fans - and even neutral ones - totally bemused.
And Steven Gerrard has now made his feelings on the matter very clear with his latest Instagram post.
The Liverpool legend posted a photo each of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson, which a simple caption of: "We know so it doesn’t matter #🌍👏👏."

Well said, Steven.
There has long been questions about the selection of players for the FIFA World XI, but this year's edition appears to have received more scrutiny than ever.
Ramos, Marcelo and Luka Modric are three of the most laughable recipients of the honour arguably in the award's history.
Had it been 12 months ago, their inclusions would have been justified entirely.
But players cannot simply be picked based on their reputation, which is what seems to have happened this time around.
The fact no Manchester City players were rewarded for winning a domestic treble says it all.
