Just in case you were wondering how the most  expensive player on the planet didn’t make FIFA’s team of the year, world football’s governing body has an explanation.

In an announcement, FIFA said:

‘The closest call was the third midfield position, with Kroos narrowly beating Pogba by two votes’. ‘It is the smallest margin ever in the 12-year World XI history to decide on inclusion in the World XI.’

pogbaBefore his big money move to Manchester United, Pogba helped Juventus to a fifth straight Serie A title and reached the final of the Euros with France.

The FIFPro World XI  was dominated by players from Real Madrid and Barcelona, Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer is the only player from outside the two Spanish giants to make the cut.
