This is because the vote for the “perfect team” was conducted by more than 20 thousand players around the world, in contrast to the individual awards in which journalists participated. Looking at this, viewers noticed some distortions.
The first “strange” fact was the existence of the guard Donnarumma, Who lost to Mendy as the best goalkeeper of the year. The Italian, the European Cup champion with his country, was part of the 11 athletes of the year.
Another factor that caused confusion is the absence of Salah from Liverpool, Who was one of the three finalists for the FIFA World Player of the Year award – Next to Messi And Lewandowski.
Finally, the “unusual” formation of the 3-3-4 to assemble the team became the target of jokes by the fans. Without two full-backs, the team has two strikers (Haaland and Lewandowski) and the duo Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo in the offensive sector. For some Brazilians, by the way, the bold tactic was to “accommodate” the Portuguese Manchester United in the list.
The selection was as follows: Alaba, Rubén Dias and Bonucci; Jorginho, Kante and De Bruyne; Cristiano RonaldoHaaland, Lewandowski and Messi.
