UEFA accept appear the aggregation of the year 2014 but there was one mistake. The called eleven was bedeviled by German giants, Bayern Munich, but the agency absent one acute amateur in conceivably the a lot of absorbing starting 11 anytime aggregate to-date.
The team was picked from a shortlist of 40 by UEFA.com staff writers, and after a total of 8.6 million votes the selections were made. Perennial all-star Cristiano Ronaldo tallied the most votes with 623,046.
UEFA XI – Manuel Neuer; Phillip Lahm, Sergio Ramos, Diego Godin, David Alaba; Toni Kroos, Arjen Robben, Angel Di Maria; Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lionel Messi.
This starting 11 would be a dream appear accurate in FIFA Ultimate Team. Starting amid the sticks, is Germany’s Sweeper Keeper Manuel Neuer. He capped off a amazing 2013 -2014 division by appropriation the 2014 summer Apple Cup in Brazil. He was abutting by adolescent Bayern Munich teammates Phillip Lahm, David Alaba, Arjen Robben, and old teammate, Toni Kroos.
Champions Alliance finalists Diego Godin and Sergio Ramos lie at the affection of the defense, afterward superb club campaigns in which Atletico won the La Liga and Real Madrid assuredly won the La Decima in the UEFA Champions League.
Man of the match in the Champions league final, Angel Di Maria and top scorer of the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo also made it in a competitive voting process. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic rounded out the most potent frontline ever put together in world football.
So, we ask the question, where would be the mistake in such an unstoppable team? The coach perhaps?
The answer lies at the heart of the attack. Though Ibrahimovic won the French Ligue 1 title, amassing 41 goals in all competitions, there was someone more deserving of his spot (Hide, he is coming after me!). Thomas Muller should’ve been the striker in UEFA’s 2014 Team of the Year. He won the German double and hoisted the 2014 World Cup. This, my friend, is a far more impressive feat than Zlatan’s league title, considering he opened the floodgates for a 7-1 thrashing of Brazil at home during the World Cup.
