Real Madrid lead the nominations for FIFPro’s World 11, with 13 players named among the 55 footballers in contention for a place in the line-up.

FIFPro and its affiliated player associations polled 25,000 professional footballers to put together a long list of names that will eventually be shortened to name a side consisting of a goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three attackers.

The 2016 World 11 featured five Madrid players and four from Barcelona, but Los Blancos‘ tally of 13 named in the 55-man list is a record.
