Picking the xXx Dream Team of Global Superstars

Imagine a dream team made up of players who possess extreme characteristics of power, skill, tenacity, strength and pace.

Here is that dream team complete with the most pumped up, fast paced and pulsating players on the planet.


Manuel Neuer

Bayern Muenchen v TSG 1899 Hoffenheim - Bundesliga

Manuel Neuer is credited with perfecting the role of the modern ‘sweeper keeper’. The Bayern Munich and Germany number one is always living on the edge, as he looks to explode from his penalty area and eradicate danger at the earliest possible moment.


Dani Alves

AC Milan v Juventus FC - Serie A

Were he given a choice you wouldn’t bet against even a current broken leg keeping marauding Juventus wing-back Dani Alves out of action. There is little he can’t do and there is even less that he won’t do in his drive to win.


Sergio Ramos

FBL-ESP-LIGA-BARCELONA-REALMADRID

Sergio Ramos is garnering quite the reputation for saving the day. The Real Madrid skipper has scored critical last minute goals in the Champions League final, the UEFA Super Cup and El Clásico in the last two and a half years alone.


Giorgio Chiellini

Juventus FC v UC Sampdoria - Serie A

Towering Italian centre-back Giorgio Chiellini is as tough and uncompromising as they come. He’s rarely beaten on the ground or in the air, is quick, strong and has marshalled a Juventus defence that hasn’t conceded more than 24 goals in any of the last five Serie A seasons.


David Alaba

FBL-GER-BUNDESLIGA-BAYERN-MUNICH-LEVERKUSEN

What is incredible about David Alaba is that he could easily be the best player in the team in four or five different positions at most clubs in the world. Such versatility and ability to adapt to seemingly any situation is not a skill that should be overlooked.


Paul Pogba

FBL-ENG-PR-SWANSEA-MAN UTD

There is almost nothing that Paul Pogba, the world’s most expensive player, cannot do on a football pitch, while he is always the centre of attention off it. Near impossible to knock off the ball, innately skilled and usually sporting an extreme haircut. He knows no limits.


Arturo Vidal

FBL-GER-BUNDESLIGA-BAYERN-MUNICH-BORUSSIA-MOENCHENGLADBACH

Fierce, intimidating and technically talented in equal measures, Arturo Vidal has bossed Bayern Munich’s midfield since 2015, and Chile’s for even longer. He’s energetic, all-action and a true box-to-box star, who has the trophies to back up his reputation.


Neymar Jr.

FC Barcelona v Real Madrid CF - La Liga

Tenacious and skilful, the all conquering Brazilian Neymar can barely put a foot wrong. Forming one part of the deadliest trio in football, MSN, the 24-year-old is the sharpshooting talent any team would be lucky to have.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

FBL-GER-BUNDESLIGA-HAMBURG-DORTMUND

Frightening speed will get you a long way in football and Borussia Dortmund front-man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang uses his to lethal effect. There are few forwards as potent anywhere in the world right now.


Diego Costa

Manchester City v Chelsea - Premier League

Strong, powerful, determined, Diego Costa is everything you could want in a modern striker. The Chelsea star can do it all and is able to bully opposition defenders into submission, while he’s always treading a fine line between right and wrong.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic

FBL-ENG-PR-MAN UTD-SOUTHAMPTON

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has continued to get better with age, as he learns more about himself and more about the game in general. He shown that for Manchester United, even at the advanced age of 35, while his martial arts training means the Swede is as athletic as ever.
