Graphic: A leading Dutch website release the FIFA Team of the Year (only Spanish based players!)

We’ve no idea how have managed to get the inside scoop of the 2012 FIFA Team of the Year, however, if this list is true, it’s very interesting.

Several observations/questions.

Every player in the FIFA XI plays in Spain. That includes five Real Madrid players, five Barcelona players and one from Atletico Madrid.

Where is Robin van Persie?

Champions League winners Chelsea have no players in the FIFA XI.

Jose Mourinho doesn’t think Iker Casillas is currently Real Madrid’s best goalkeeper. FIFA clearly think otherwise.

Marcelo at left back. Really? Ashley Cole surely had a case for that slot.
