Over the last 11 weeks, we have conducted the campaign with NIVEA Men to let Mzansi football fans vote for their Real best XI of this century and here is the complete line-up.

Starting in goal, Spanish FIFA World Cup winner and club legend, Iker Casillas received the most votes. As a former club captain, commanding leader and brilliant goalkeeper, it is easy to see why he was chosen as your main shot-stopper.

In Dani Carvajal and Roberto Carlos, two attacking full-backs made the selection after impressing fans world-wide with an incredible mix of pace, strength, attacking ability and defensive stability on the flanks.

Centre-back pair Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane have given Real a lot of stability and played a key role in the club winning four of the last six UEFA Champions League trophies, which has seen them being voted into the team.

In defensive midfield, the aggressive and classy Xabi Alonso is accompanied by Zinedine Zidane and Luka Modric.

Pushing further forward into the wider positions, David Beckham’s crossing, coupled with the goalscoring ability of five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, makes for a deadly combination.

Upfront, Brazilian striker Ronaldo Nazario made the cut after possibly being the greatest number nine to have ever played the game. The Brazilian legend did things rarely seen on a football field, even though his career was hampered by injuries.

Mzansi, you chose a team worthy of facing the best in the history of the game, and Welcome Simango is the lucky winner of our NIVEA Men hamper and replica shirt give-away.
