Despite Borussia Dortmund winning the Bundesliga last season, not one of their players is on the rather farcical 2011 FIFPro World XI Shortlist, made up of 55 players from across the world.
The nominees for the shortlist were voted for by the 50,000 professional footballers worldwide from the various players' unions which make up FIFPro.
And it seems most of the nominations were merely chosen as many young footballers' idols, more so than who the best and most in-form players in world football at the moment are.
Hence why the unspectacular likes of John Terry, Alessandro Nesta, Lucio, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Gianluigi Buffon have continued to receive nominations.
Here are 10 players who should have been shortlisted.
