The World Cup's most searched XI—according to Google—is a pretty handy team.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, some of the world's greatest players make the cut because that's what people are looking for.

Lionel Messi joins Cristiano Ronaldo up front, with Neymar and Arjen Robben on the wings.

Behind them in midfield are Bastian Schweinsteiger and Andrea Pirlo, while a defensive four of Atsuto Uchida, Gerard Pique, David Luiz and Marcos Rojo protect goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

So who would lead such a talented but popular set of players? Well, the World Cup's most searched-for coach?

Step forward, Jurgen Klinsmann.
