The names of the 55 finalists for the 2019 FIFA FIFPro Men’s World 11 have been officially confirmed.

FIFA released an official statement: “For the first time this year, FIFA and FIFPro will recognise the world’s outstanding ‘team’ in both the men’s and women’s game, meaning the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11 will succeed the FIFA FIFPro World11 that was inaugurated in 2009. That year, FIFA and FIFPro joined forces to honour the best 11 players of the year, and it was presented for the first time at the 2009 FIFA World Player Gala.”

Premier League clubs boast the most number of players on the 55-man shortlist for the FIFA FIFPro World 11 for the first time in a decade. LaLiga has been displaced after nine successive years as the best-represented league. This time it has 20 players.

Meanwhile, Brazil is the most-represented nation. There are seven Brazil national team players included in the shortlist.
Barcelona with 11 players and Real Madrid with 9 players lead the other clubs as the most-represented clubs.

Over 23,000 professional footballers have voted to decide the 2019 FIFA FIFPro Men’s World 11. The final 11 will be announced at The Best FIFA Football Awards show in Milan on Monday 23rd September.
