Picking a best XI from across Europe is tough enough, but we at GMF like a challenge - so we've added one crucial rule to give this team a little twist.

Each top European league can only submit one player - so no Messi AND Ronaldo, it's Messi OR Ronaldo.

As a result, compromises will be made. The top strikers from all the divisions can't all make it. Yilmaz, Bony, Messi, Ronaldo, Cavani, Suarez, Van Persie - there's more options than places.

Now, we've had to climb pretty far down the European ladder to get 11 leagues - so as well as the big five, we've got the Scottish Premier League, the Ukrainian and Russian, the Portuguese, Eredivisie and Turkish top flight.

It's one big juggling act, and not everyone (if anyone) will agree with our selections, so that's why we invite you to pick your own team in the comment box below!
