FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11 2019 dominated by Premier League

FIFA FIFPro Men's World11 2019

Following on from Yesterdays reveal of the first ever candiates to be nominated for the FIFA FIFPro Women’s World11 2019, FIFPro / FIFA have revealed the 55 names in contention for the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11 2019.

And guess what… it is absolutely littered with Premier League players.

For the past 10 years, the award has been dominated by the Spanish La Liga and their incredible high quality players. But this year, the Premier League takes centre stage.

The World11

The World11 is a team compiled of the best footballers, voted the best in their position, for the previous footballing season. Unlike most other ‘Best’ awards however, this is voted for by the Players. Not just in the elite competitions however, but all across the world.

The Team is made up of a standard 4-3-3 formation, and each player who voted had to choose 1 GoalKeeper, 4 Defenders, 3 Midfielders and 3 Forward Players.

Enter, the Prem de la Prem

From the 55 Players chosen for the shortlist, 21 were from the Premier League. Narrowly pipping La Liga (20) to the accolade of most shortlisted players for 2019.

There were 21 different nationalities represented too, which shows a global representation of the beautiful game. However, over 60% of the players came from only 4 clubs… Barcelona (11), Real Madrid (9), Manchester City (8), Liverpool (7).
