FIFA has released its list of finalists 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 that you can have a say in who you think should be included in the team. But don’t waste time browsing through each category as you aimlessly search for your favorite players; we have the list of all the players in each category for you here.
So enjoy as we provide you with a rundown of all the nominees for the FIFA UT Team of the Year.
Only seven blockers have been shortlisted for the Team of the Year goalie spot, but they’re a pretty decent bunch, we’re sure you’ll agree.
European champion Manuel Neuer makes the cut (obviously), while Premier League duo Alisson and Ederson are also included among the nominees, with Real Madrid goalkeeper and former Chelsea player Thibaut Courtois also an option.
No fewer than three Liverpool defenders have been nominated in the defender 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 Alphonso Davies, the 20-year-old Bayern Munich wonder boy, does.
Nominees to defender:
Stefan de Vrij
Virgil van Dijk
Surely this must be one of the most difficult categories to make a decision. How do you start to decide who is the best between Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne and Thiago?
The midfield category is packed with stellar names, with Joshua Kimmich, Puskas award winner Son Heung-min and Real Madrid midfield master Toni Kroos all in the running.
Good luck choosing your final options from these lots.
Nominees for midfield:
Kevin De Bruyne
Now this is the really fun part.
Let’s be honest, we can enjoy the joys of midfielders and defenders as much as we want, but the forwards are what really interests us.
It’s no surprise to see Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi fighting once again for a place in the XI, while Neymar and Kylian Mbappé aren’t bad options either, and no strikers list would be complete without Robert Lewandowski.
And if you like none of the above, you can even vote for former Stoke and Newcastle striker Joselu …
Wissam Ben Yedder
Angel di Maria
