They made a division between defenders, midfielders, and attackers.
With the final results delivered today, each member of the final XI is set to get a historic Ballon d’Or that holds him in high regard as one of the best ever in his position. Cristiano Ronaldo made the prestigious list alongside some of the biggest names the sport has ever seen. We will give you the final list of names on every position and ask if you agree with this list.
Who made France Football’s final Best XI list?
Let’s start with the formation France football decided to use after getting all the voting finished. We have a 1-3-4-3 formation with a midfield packed with talent from every corner of the world. As a goalkeeper, we have legendary Lev Yashin. On the defense we have Cafu, Franz Beckenbauer, and Paolo Maldini. On midfield we have Xavi, Lothar Matthaus, Pele, and Diego Maradona.
And finally, we have Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldo Nazario, and Lionel Messi on the attack. This is the squad that was voted by prominent journalists all over the world but some of you might not agree with this list. We certainly believe this is arguably one of the strongest all-time sides we’ve ever seen on any list. But please, tell us what you think about this decision from France Football.
