Welcome to World Class 2021

3

Ok, let’s get this out of the way immediately:

You will probably not agree with the team we have chosen for World XI 2021, and that is good – everyone has the right to their opinion.

All you need to remember before you tweet angrily at myself or the 90min Twitter account is that there was a carefully crafted method of building the team (or “madness”, in your opinion).

Armed with our famous # W2WC measure, the 90-minute team considered in seven languages ​​and came to that conclusion – so keep that in mind as you read the following …

Manuel Neuer (GK) – It’s hard to argue with having one of the top five goalkeepers who ever lived between the sticks, right? # W2WC measured value: 479.

Trent Alexander Arnold (RB) – By retaining its place in World XI, TAA has continued to perform at an exceptionally high level in 2020; although Gareth Southgate does not want to admit it. # W2WC measured value: 460.

Virgil van Dijk (CB) – He had his injury problems, sure, but you can not deny that (when he is in shape) there is no better midfielder in the world than Van Dijk. Liverpool were barely a top four team while he was away, and since his return they are back to title challengers. That really says it all. # W2WC measured value: 461.

Giorgio Chiellini (CB) – If you have watched any of Italy’s European Championship 2020 matches, you will know why Chiellini made this team. And if you did not do that, read Chloe Beresford’s article on why he did this. # W2WC measured value: 456.

Andy Robertson (LB) – Is there a better two-way back in world football? No, it’s not. # W2WC Dimensions: 457.

N’Golo Kante (DM) – The Chelsea man is a winner. He makes every team he ever plays for a winner. And he has the Premier League titles, the 2018 World Cup and the UEFA Champions League winners’ medal to prove it. # W2WC measured value: 467

Marco Verratti (CENTIMETER) – A really wonderful little football player. Both brilliant in the tackle and the ball, Verratti is the main midfielder in today’s match. When he can stay in shape, Paris Saint-Germain and Italy are very lucky to have him. # W2WC measured value: 453.

Kevin De Bruyne (AM) – The Man City midfielder averted serious competition from the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Thomas Muller to secure his place in this team for the second year in a row. # W2WC matrix score: 479.

Mohamed Salah (RF) – Yep, before Lionel Messi. And for good reason. Salah has been amazingly good in 2021. Leanne Prescott has explained how amazingly good here. # W2WC measured value: 502.

Robert Lewandowski (ST) – Yep, before Cristiano Ronaldo. Of course before Cristiano Ronaldo. Lewa is the best striker in the world right now and it’s not even close. He has scored 53 goals in 42 appearances in 2021, which has converted 28.7% of his shots on goal. Ridiculous statistics for a ridiculous football player who has managed to top # W2WC 50 for the second year in a row. # W2WC measured value: 508.

Kylian Mbappe (LF) – 2021 has been a year of growth for the most amazing talent we have seen since Lionel Messi appeared in 2006. Julien Laurens has explained why for you here. # W2WC measured value: 484.

❌ Lionel Messi❌ Cristiano Ronaldo

Our best ????? ????? XI for the year. Merry Christmas. ?
