Balotelli Names Star-Studded Dream Team, No Place For CR7

Throughout his career, Italy international Mario Balotelli has played with and against some of the best players in the world, and the former Manchester City star has now named his ultimate dream team!

Click through the gallery above for images of Balotelli's dream team, according to the Daily Mirror!

In goal, Balotelli picked former Brazil international Julio Cesar as his team's 'keeper, with the former Inter star supported in defence by countrymen Maicon and Maxwell in the respective wing-back positions. 

The Brescia striker then named two of his own compatriots in the centre-back positions, combining Italy's 2006 FIFA World Cup-winning pair of Alessandro Nesta and Fabio Cannavaro to complete a formidable back-line.

In midfield, fellow Italian Andrea Pirlo occupies a deep-lying position behind the box-to-box duo of Steven Gerrard and Yaya Toure, the latter of whom played alongside Balotelli at City. 

They are supported by former Real Madrid and AS Roma forward Antonio Cassano, who takes up a supporting role for the lethal strike pairing of Lionel Messi and Brazil legend Ronaldo Nazario.

There was no place in Balotelli's side for five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, however, with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kaka among the other big-name players to have missed out.
