FIFA announced its World XI team at their awards night yesterday in London. 13 time European Champions Real Madrid dominate the list as four of their current players were included in the XI. Their ex-player Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Juventus this summer also made it to the list. Surprisingly, there was no place for Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Belgian's Thibaut Courtois, who received the best goalkeeper of the year award in the star-studded team.

The Midfield comprises FIFA Best Men's player of the year and 2018 FIFA World Cup Golden Ball winner Luka Modric along with Chelsea's instrumental Midfielder N'Golo Kante.
