Best XI from players that aren't going


Recommended Posts

Standard tournament thread this surely.

Loads of big name players being left out of squads over the last couple of days.  Plus injuries obvs.  Plus people that don't get a look in because their country is no good.

So yeah, make a best "Missing The World Cup XI" and predict how far it would go.

Very quick 11 without thinking a lot:

 

Buffon

Bellerin (or Nelson Semedo)
Chiellini
Laporte
Marcos Alonso

Vidal (or Rabiot)
Nainggolan
Robben
Bale

Icardi
Lacazette

Think the OP means players left out of their squads, rather than Italians/Welsh/Dutch.

Surely Aubameyang starts over Lacazette?

Laporte is French and I'm dumb. Ignore me. 

E: although are France even stacked at CB? Varane, Koscielny (is he fit?), Umtiti... who else? Adil Rami surely not still getting a call up?

Kimpembe and Rami with Koscielny injured :lol:

why on earth take a 32 year old Rami who won't even start ahead of a young Laporte who could be the best CB in the world in a few years? Bizarre bizarre choice that.

A Brazil team could be:

Marcelo Grohe; Rafinha, Jemerson, Rodrigo Caio, Alex Sandro; Fabinho, Arthur, Luan, Malcom, Richarlison (or Bernard); Jonas

Obs: Daniel Alves is injured

Don't forget Lucas Hernandez :cool: Who basically declared his intention to switch to Spain few months ago and they promptly called him up, Laporte should do the the same :D.
