See if you agree with our ultimate team from Europe’s top tier.
Since the European Cup was re-branded as the Champions League in 1992 there have been some of the greatest players in the history of football gracing the competition.
As the 2013/14 tournament enters the quarter-final stage with modern hero Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly dominating so far, fanatix decided to pick the ultimate starting XI from over 20 years of European football.
GK – Edwin van der Sar
Clubs: Ajax, Juventus, Manchester United.
There have been some great goalkeepers who could have filled the No.1 spot in this team, with Gianluigi Buffon, Iker Casillas and Oliver Kahn all unlucky to miss out.
However, for being the only stopper to win the competition with two different clubs and for his 2008 penalty heroics in the final, van der Sar gets the nod.
