FIFA have released the 55-man short-list for the 2017 FIFPro World11, with the final global team of the year set to be named at the annual FIFA 'Best' gala to be held in London on 23rd October.

The final team will be a 4-3-3 formation and is decided by professional players around the world, with more than 24,000 casting votes.

Understandably, La Liga is heavily represented by Real Madrid and Barcelona, while there are also a number of Juventus and Bayern Munich players among the list.

The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Harry Kane represent the Premier League from Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham respectively, but Manchester United and Chelsea have multiple players each across the positions.
