FIFA 21 Team of the Year nominations revealed
FIFA have released their shortlist for the UT Team of the Year, with a host of the world’s best players vying for a spot in the Final XI.
And the best part is you can have a say in who you think should be included on the team. But don’t waste time going through each category aimlessly searching for your favorite players – we have the list of all players in each category for you here.
So take advantage as we provide you with an overview of all the nominees for the FIFA UT Team of the Year.
Only seven stoppers have been shortlisted for the Team of the Year goalie position, but they’re pretty decent we’re sure you’ll agree.
European champion Manuel Neuer makes the cut (obviously) while Premier League duo Alisson and Ederson are also named among the nominees, with Real Madrid goalkeeper and former Chelsea man Thibaut Courtois also an option.
Nominees of goalkeepers:
No less than three Liverpool defenders have been nominated in the defenders category, with Virgil van Dijk joined by teammates Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Sergio Ramos also makes the cut although there is no room for his Real Madrid colleague Raphael Varane, while 20-year-old Bayern Munich prodigy Alphonso Davies is in the game.
Stefan from Vrij
Virgil van Dijk
This must surely be one of the most difficult categories to do. How do you even start to decide who is the best among those of Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne and Thiago?
The midfielder category is full of stellar names, with Joshua Kimmich, Puskas Prize winner Son Heung-min, and Real Madrid midfielder maestro Toni Kroos all in the running.
Good luck choosing your final picks from these lots.
Kevin De Bruyne
Now that is the really fun part.
Let’s be honest, we can indulge in the joys of midfielders and defenders whatever we like, but forwards are what we really care about.
No surprise to see Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi fight again for a place in the XI, while Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are not bad options either, and no extended roster would be complete without Robert Lewandowski.
And if none of the above pleases you, you can even vote for ex-Stoke and Newcastle striker Joselu…
Wissam Ben Yedder
Angel Di Maria
