Football's governing body once again collaborated with the International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPro) to get about 23 000 professional players to vote for their peers.

Each of the footballers selected their personal World XI, with the most chosen players per position making the final overall dream team.

As in every edition, the World XI will line up in a 4-3-3 formation, and is based on performances in the previous campaign.

Somewhat surprisingly, UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool have just two players in the selection after lifting their sixth European Cup, namely Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have four players in the team despite not winning any trophy in 2018/19. But the likes of Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Luka Modric and Eden Hazard all made the selection again, even though the latter's appearance is based on his performances for Chelsea in 2019/20.

The rest of the spots are filled by Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, following their strong displays for Ajax Amsterdam last season, superstar duo Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as well as Kylian Mbappe.
