"No one player is as good as the sum of the team." -- Alfredo Di Stéfano

Cristiano Ronaldo launches FIFPro World XI vote © | September 29, 2014

how he chose his XI: “There are many criteria. They are what a player has done in the past season, the titles he has won at both the collective level and the individual level, and the start of this season too. It is about the players who are more consistent and who demonstrate a high level all through the year and also have obtained the most important titles, which in my opinion were the Champions League and the World Championship. I think those are the criteria that should count the most.”
