Combined XI: France Vs Brazil

With the two international giants matching up on Thursday night in a friendly encounter, the Fan Park Crew has looked in to what a starting XI would look like if the two nations had to combine.

Both teams have incredible players, with several present or future Ballon d’Or contenders in their ranks.

Here is the best possible starting XI, when we putting Brazil and France together:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Loris (France/Tottenham Hotspur)

Left-back: Marcelo (Brazil/Real Madrid)

Centre-back: Kurt Zouma (France/Chelsea)

Centre-back: Thiago Silva (Brazil/Paris Saint-Germain)

Right-back: Raphael Varane (France/Real Madrid)

Left-mid: Philippe Coutinho (Brazil/Liverpool)

Centre-mid: Oscar (Brazil/Chelsea)

Centre-mid: Blaise Matuidi (France/Paris Saint-Germain)

Right-mid: Antoine Griezmann (France/Atletico Madrid)  

Left-forward: Neymar (Brazil/Barcelona)

Right-forward: Karim Benzema (France/Real Madrid)

Estimated value of starting line-up: R5 Billion 

Substitutes: Steve Mandanda (France/Marseille), David Luiz (Brazil/Paris Saint-Germain), Bacary Sagna (France/Manchester City), Mathieu Valbuena (France/Dinamo Moscow), Roberto Firmino (Brazil/Hoffenheim), Robinho (Brazil/Santos), Alexandre Lacazette (France/Lyon)

We will note that Paul Pogba would have been one of the first names on the sheet had he been deemed fit to play against Brazil, however, Oscar comes in to take his place.
