"Its a pity that such a good post has got no comments in facebook. I liked your approach in selecting the players for the World XI. I have thought about such a world XI of my generation and have formed almost as same as yours. But I would like to contradict in few cases. First of all, I believe an inform Casillas is the best choice as the last man in defence, without putting a nanometer of doubt about the keeping quality of Buffon or Kahn. Secondly, I believe if you really go for a true great center back Cafu is a better option than Ramos. Its needless to mention how much respect I have for the spanish legend whose ambidexterous style of play makes him suitable in any position in defence. But still, if you mean centre back it has to be Cafu. Now Cannavaro has to be another CB. So I would like a change in player and position for the rest two in defence. Now, there's no doubt that Maldini has to be there, but not as LB. I would rather put him in RB for his omnipresence and ability to operate with both feet. Take no offence plaese, but I has to put lahm out of it. To me he is the best Right Back in the world now and a true fighter and asset of a team. I am truly a fan of him. But sadly enough, I have to sacrifice him for letting Roberto Carlos, not only a true great left back but also a set piece maestro. Now, I have another question for you are DMs quite important in this team having four such great defenders? At least you mustn't play Zidane there. This great French playmaker is best suited as CAM. So, rather put him beside Ronaldinho as two CAMs. choice of wingers are simply superb so is the choice of lone striker. Remains a CDM, i believe Iniesta is a better option than Pirlo in terms of dribbling skills. The other qualities of these two are almost the same. But Iniesta can dribble past two or three players at ease. Plus he has the ability to not let players go beyond him with never say die spirit. You would say Pirlo is better in dead ball situations. But I would reply does this team need anymore set piece maestros beyond- Carlos, Zidane, Messi, Rnaldinho and Cristiano Ronaldo. So I would take Iniesta as my CDM before the likes Pirlo, Xavi, Lampard or Gerrard (my favourite English player). So my formation would be 4-1-4-1. My team will be:- Casillas(GK) Carlos(LB), Cafu(CB), Cannavaro(CB), Maldini(RB), Iniesta(CDM), C.Ronaldo(LW), Ronaldinho(CAM), Zidane(CAM), Messi(RW), Ronaldo(CF). I hope you would understand the reason behind changes. Comments and debate on this will be greatly appreciated because its a great pity not be able to put so many great players in this team who were left out!!! :("

If Villas-Boas had to go, then surely so does Moyes?
