    At the back I have three of the best centre backs in world football. Bonucci and Ramos have bags of experience and are both ideally suited to their positions in a back three. They are complimented by a younger Varane who is part of the French core of my team and partners Ramos at Real Madrid.

    The width in my team is provided by the full backs, Alves showing he can still do the business in the Copa America and Mendy proving himself by earning his big money move to Real Madrid this summer.

    In central midfield I have two versatile and athletic Frenchmen. Matuidi is a regular starter for Juventus and France, despite both having bigger name players available. Sissoko is a key player for Spurs and was a regular as they reached the Champions League final.

    Up front, Jovic showed his quality, earning a big money move to Real Madrid and gets the main striker role. His excellent hold up play should allow my two French forwards and two of the best strikers in the world, Mbappe and Griezmann to drop off and do what they do best.

    My back three and front three are as good as it gets. This team would be solid at the back and score for fun at the other end of the pitch!

    Back line including Youth and Experience. Skriniar and De Vrij who are enjoying learning to play together. Two exciting young full backs Gaya, so many games under his belt already a ready made replacement for Alba in spain squad andWan Bissaka a great youngster great in the tackle and with a great future

    My Midfield is exciting, Fernandinho to do the dirty work which he excels at Rakitic playmaking and the exceptional attacking of di maria and two of the premierships best players in Sterling and Silva.

    With the great creativity I needed a striker who can score all types of goals and be a target man for the forward runs of the midfield so i picked one of the best in Mandzukic.

    Alisson Becker...best GK in the world. Nuff said.

    Luiz, Silva & Marquinhos...played a hell of a lot of football together so know each other inside out no problem gelling. Solid.

    David Neres...a rising star in a bright young Ajax team his electric pace will give width down the right flank. Wildcard some would say.

    Lucas Leiva & Luiz Gustavo...experience & physicality in midfield. Wise old heads.

    Neymar Jr...some would call him a primadonna but his talent is endless as is his passion for his nation. The heart of the team.

    Philippe Coutinho...playing in the hole behind my strikeforce he will dictate the play and drop into a midfield 3 when needed. The Magician.

    Alexandre Pato...in his early years he was unplayable at times the former Golden Boy winner will feel at home amongst his countryman. **** knows.

    Roberto Firmino...will drop into attacking midfield at times when Coutinho fills in midfield, blessed with a first touch from the footballing gods he will lead the press and be the focal point of the team. The best.

    @Joga bonito Great balanced team!

    @Muller You struggled a bit with your budget in the end, but you managed to do pretty well. Didn't expect to see Neymar in this draft though, but good choice!

    I am the draft king mate the only reason I don’t win every time is because of politics.

    Good effort, though I think Robertson Kimmich and Modric were taken!

    Sadly, you can't have two teams...

    @AlissonWonderland

    @Michaelf7777777

    @Tomohawk



    So, it turns out that we will have groups of 3 for the first stage. 2 progress from each group.

    The 6 people left will be split into 2 groups of 3 again and 2 will progress again.

    Then we have semi-finals, 3rd place (unless you don't want to) and the Big Final.

    Everyone is free to vote, regardless of whether they participated in the draft or no...

    Does that look good?

    Groups are a bit better, as a good team could be knocked out early with knockout stages...

    Anyways, do you agree with me or Berbasloth?
