With an exhibition match between Europe’s major leagues being mooted, here are some Ligue 1 players who would be in contention to feature for the ‘Southern XI’ and who should at least make the all-star squad!

GK: Vincent Enyeama
Enyeama may be playing at LOSC Lille-not one of the truly big dogs in the French top flight-but he is one of the division’s outstanding players and would be a fine addition to the all-star squad.
DC: David Luiz
A centre-back who cost £50 million and is one of the most recognisable figures in the game, Luiz would surely be considered for his technical prowess and his attacking qualities.
DC: Thiago Silva
And what about the captain of Brazil? Surely Thiago Silva deserves a look-in as one of the truly outstanding centre-backs in the world game.
