FIFPro-Worlds-players-union-mobile-logo

Based on the votes from 23,383 professional footballers worldwide, FIFPro created the FIFA FIFPro World XI and four World XI reserve teams, containing all 55 players on the shortlist that was published in December 2014.

Four members of the 2013 FIFA FIFPro World XI missed out on the 2014 award. While Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Daniel Alves find themselves in the World XI Second Team, Xavi Hernández and Franck Ribéry have to settle for the Third and Fifth Team respectively.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was very close to retaining his place in the World XI. He came within 200 votes of Arjen Robben. The Dutch Bayern Munich winger did not receive as many votes as his Swedish rival for the third spot in the attack, but managed to beat the tall striker thanks to the votes he also earned as a midfielder.

Marcelo and David Alaba lost their battle with David Luiz, who trailed the Brazilian international defender by 86 and 149 votes respectively.  Dani Alves did not threaten the three aforementioned players. In order to collect his fifth World XI Award he needed more than 700 extra votes.
