Team of the Year 2011 by UEFA

While waiting for Gran Derbi I decided to write this post because UEFA has chosen the Team of the Year 2011. There were over 4,5 million votes (it was users who voted for players) and its highly dominated by La Liga players. Here it is:

  1. GK: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid)
  2. Right Def: Daniel Alves (FC Barcelona)
  3. Centre Def: Gerard Pique (FC Barcelona)
  4. Centre Def: Thiago Silva (AC Milan)
  5. Left Def: Marcelo (Real Madrid)
  6. Right Midfielder: Arjen Robben (FC Bayern Munchen)
  7. Centre Midfielder: Xavi Hernandez (FC Barcelona)
  8. Attacking Midfielder: Andres Iniesta (FC Barcelona)
  9. Left Midfielder: Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur)
  10. Forward #1: Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona)
  11. Forward #2: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
  12. Coach: Josep Guardiola (FC Barcelona)

Personally, I wouldn't let Cristiano be in the Team of the Year because of his lack of form in more important matches, and I would replace Iker Casillas with Wojciech Szczesny because he's really young and talented (skillful too!) goalkeeper. He had many chances to prove that, if you don't believe me check him on youtube.

What do you think about the final result of voting?
