World Cup XI

About 3 years ago, I posted a list of players for my dream soccer team. Of course it’s horribly out of date as most of the players are in their mid-30s now. So, instead of a “dream team,” I’ll post my World Cup XI here the day before the final.

FW – James Rodriguez (Colombia)
FW – Thomas Muller (Germany)
MF – Paul Pogba (France)
MF – Arjen Robben (Netherlands)
MF – Xherdan Shaqiri (Swizerland)
MF – Javier Mascherano (Argentina)
DF – Thiago Silva (Brazil)
DF – Phillip Lamb (Germany)
DF – Jan Vertonghen (Belgium)
DF – Matt Hummels (Germany)
GK – Tim Howard (USA)

Honorable Mention
GK – Kaylor Navas (Costa Rica)
FW – Karim Benzema (France)
MD – Kyle Beckerman (USA)
DF – Mario Yepes (Colombia)

    • keeper was probably the most difficult position to decide. there were so many good one in this tourney despite all the scoring. Ochoa, Neuer, and Romero all had great tournaments as well.

      I only chose Navas over Ochoa because he gave up 2 goals (instead of 3) and won a shoot-out.
