Ahead of the Goal 50 on Monday July 29, our countdown continues with each of Goal’s regional managing editors this week choosing their best world XIs from 2012-13
This XI is all about the power in the attack.
With Gareth Bale on the right of midfield and Franck Ribery on the left, you essentially have two extra forwards on the pitch to play alongside Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.
You can be sure central midfielders Andres Iniesta and Bastian Schweinsteiger will supply those attackers with the ball better than anyone else in the sport.
It would also be very tough to score against this team, too, with Vincent Kompany, Mats Hummels and Dante holding the backline and Manuel Neuer in goal.
Even if the side were to concede, there is no way the opposition can match the goal tally this team’s attack would rack up.
