5 from Real, 5 from Barcelona, 1 from Atletico. Do you think someone was forgotten?
The front 5 - Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Ronaldo, Falcao - picks itself, don't think there can be any arguments there.
The back 5 is baffling though. Neuer for Casillas. Lahm and Cole as full backs (Bayern and Chelsea played the Champions League final so at least one of their players should be there). Silva and Hummels as center backs. Busquets or Schweinsteiger for Alonso.
