    Select your best XI but there is a catch.........

    I believe I started a thread a couple of years ago with the same idea, however I won't even bother trying to find it and I also want to do an updated version.

    Basically the premise is to select your best football XI HOWEVER each of the players selected must be from a different league.

    You can select players from whatever league you want to but you cannot select two players from the same league.

    My team is as follows:-

    -------------------------------Muslera--------------------------------

    Srna------------------Dede--------------Chiellini------------Lahm-----------


    ------------Moutinho-----------Clasie----------------Verratti------------------------


    -------------Messi------------Del Piero--------------Suarez-------------------------

    Muslera - Galatasary
    Srna - Shakhtar
    Dede - Vasco
    Chiellini - Juventus
    Lahm - Bayern
    Moutinho - FC Porto
    Clasie - Feyernoord
    Verratti - PSG
    Messi - Barcelona
    Del Piero - Sydney
    Suarez - Liverpool



    SO what would be your selections and which leagues would you pick your players from?

    Will have a look at it later (now going to bed), but nice idea! But at least 1 thing is sure, no way Clasie is going to be in my starting lineup :P

    Bale who this season has been playing as a free range attacking midfielder is being played in your team as a left back a position he played at youth levels only?
    Messi on the right?

    Nice team. I was going to put almost the same, with only few changes: Strootman for Sneijder and Hummels for Marquez. and maybe Kompany for Baines and moving Chiellini to the left, but not necessary.

    Having some problems with who to pick from the Serie A and Bundesliga... No real standout performers.

    I completely forgot about Bundesliga! It took me ages to think through the smaller leagues. I'll probably put Hummels in for Marquez as well then...

    Suarez --- Eto'o --- Messi

    Moutinho -- Pirlo
    Strootman

    Lahm - Lopez* - T. Silva - Srna
    Forster**

    Honorable mentions:
    Yilmaz (Turkey), Neymar (Brazil)

    Very close to making it, from big leagues: Ribery, Vidal, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Reus, Buffon, and Jackson Martínez would've had a chance if it weren't for the competition up front


    * Lopez from Arsenal de Sarandi in Argentina
    ** From Celtic, Scotland

    Impressive team, although would perhaps work better as a 4-2-3-1
