Joel Embiid's XI

Basketball star Joel Embiid shared his FIFA 21 Team of the Year with his Twitter followers, accompanied with the words "I hope we all have the same taste."

It is great to see stars from outside the footballing world weighing in on such a hot debate!

There are two surprise absentees from Embiid's XI, Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi.

PSG duo Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe both feature. With the Parisian side's basketball links through their deals with Nike and specifically Jordan, we understand the connection.

RealSport's XI

Our XI shares several players with Embiid, with only three alterations.

The back four and midfield remain the same, with changes coming in goal and the forwards.

OUR XI! We couldn't leave out either Messi or Ronaldo

Manuel Neuer is our pick for no.1 as he showed excellent form throughout 2020, helping Bayern to dominate Europe.

Another Bayern star Robert Lewandowski also features in our XI alongside Lionel Messi, who replace the two PSG forwards.
