Awesome football tournament – Ryder Cup style!
A look at a European XI vs a Rest of the World XI – as fanatix wonders what a footballing equivalent of the Ryder Cup would look like.
Although the famous golf competition is contested between Europe and the USA, some bending of the rules was required here as a Europe vs Rest of the World clash would surely make for more enthralling viewing in the footballing world.
With some impossible selection decisions on both sides, see below for the players selected in each position for both insanely good-looking lineups.
GK: Manuel Neuer
A top class goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich and Germany is undoubtedly the best choice in goal for Europe’s XI.
DR: Philipp Lahm
Bayern Munich captain and recently-retired skipper of Germany’s World Cup-winning team, Philipp Lahm is surely a shoe-in at right-back.
DL: David Alaba
Yet another Bayern player, exciting young Austrian left-back is a superb prospect and worthy of a place here.
