FIFA have now officially released their nominees for the Fifpro World 11 of the year.
Once the results are in, we’ll get a team composed of the 11 best players in the world in their respective positions.
This year Real Madrid have nine players that were thrown in the hat.
The chosen team will be revealed at the Best Fifa Football Awards in Milan on 23 September.

But interestingly enough, many Real Madrid fans took to Twitter to voice their disappointment over the nominated players from their club.
They did not set out to defend them but rather to slam them for even being mentioned as some of the best the world has to offer.
Many of them seem to believe only some of the players, like Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema for example, warranted their entry, while most of the other players have no place on that stage.
You can see their rather peculiar reactions in the collection of tweets below.
Check them out…
What are those Madrid players doing on that list after the kind of season we had. The only ones who should be there are Benzema and Hazard
