La Liga dominates as no Premier League players in FIFA's World XI

The FIFA-FIFPro world all-star team has been announced but NO players from the Premier League have been included.

More than 50,000 players voted for the final eleven which was announced at the Ballon d'Or celebrations in Zurich which was won for a fourth time by superstar Lionel Messi.

Obviously Messi was a certain inclusion in the team and he was joined by fellow La Liga aces Cristiano Ronaldo, Xavi, Iker Casillas and Andres Iniesta.

The likes of Robin van Persie, Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney were all overlooked as the XI was made up of all Barcelona and Real Madrid players with the exception of Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.
