As 2011 winds down, let's make a world football team of the year.
Rather than have a team stacked with Barcelona and Real Madrid players, we'll have a quota of one representative from one club.
So if you choose Javier Mascherano (godspeed), you won't be able to choose another Barcelona player.
With regards to formation, try to ensure it's somewhat realistic, so aim for a minimum of three defenders.
Don't feel pressured to include as many big name players—instead, go for the players who have impressed you.
Make sure you comment below with your selections.
