Roberto Carlos is the latest big name to put together an ultimate Champions League XI, and the Brazilian full-back doesn't disappoint.

He includes himself, but given he won the trophy on three occasions during his stay at Real Madrid, you can hardly argue against it.

The team features a host of Galacticos and Brazilian superstars. From the former camp come the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Iker Casillas. From the latter are the likes of Ronaldinho and Cafu, with Ronaldo straddling both.

Carlos' time in the Champions League was ending around the time Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were just rising to prominence, so they do not feature. But despite that, the team still looks formidable.
