Ronaldo, Messi and the Liga Team of 2012

Ah, Christmas. The season of goodwill to all men (and women, children and animals presumably, but that never seems to get mentioned).

Also the time of the year when a look back over the past twelve months is in order, and the construction of "best of" lists fills newspapers, magazines and late-night television slots. If you've ever spent Christmas in the UK, you'll know all about that. 

It's just as well there is also a full program of football league matches during Yuletide to keep the nation sane.

In the spirit of Christmas, here is a Liga 11 of the year based on the calendar year, not who won what (or scored how many, or didn't) last season or seasons past. It might not be good enough for FIFA, but it'll do for our purposes.

After all, a footballer is for life, not just for Christmas.

To keep it from being a Real Madrid plus Barcelona 11, only one player from any team gets in.
