Original BBC link below for anyone interested:

BBC are running this little dream team where you pick your favourite world cup XI from an extensive list of players who have starred at the world cup.

Pick yours and post it here, also worth suggesting anyone else you think should be on the list they provide.

Casillas

Cafu Cannavaro Maldini Carlos

Ballack Zidane Pirlo

Baggio

Romario Ronaldo

Zenga was close but Casillas heroics won him the tournament so got the edge.

Ballack was brilliant in 2002 single handedly getting a piss poor German side to the final but missed the final.

The rest are self explanatory.

Makes sense, in that case DB should definitely make the starting 11 imo

Scored so many important, match-winning goals for Holland between '94 and '98.

Yeah it's kinda hard when you know players should go in but only seen highlights.


Let's take the BBC idea and make the thread about your personal ultimate team from ones you've seen.

Has to be the commentary tbh.

To have one commentator change accent so many times for one goal, simply awesome.
