A total of 25,000 professional footballers were asked to select a team of 11 players – one goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three attackers – from across the world, and the 55 players with the most votes have now been revealed. This starting XI will be placed in a 4-3-3 formation. The voting gave birth to this List Of FIFPro World XI Nominees 2017.
