The Fifa FIFPro World XI has been revealed on Monday night, with Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and David De Gea all making the final cut.
The players included in the line-up were considered to be the best in their respective positions over the course of the 2017-season and there were few surprises when the final announcement was made in London this evening.
Manchester United’s talismanic keeper De Gea was given the nod between the sticks, while PSG’s Dani Alves and Real Madrid trio Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo were named as the four defenders in front of him – as per The Sun.
