SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: LA GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT LEAVES OUT MESSI & SPANIARDS FROM "BEST XI 2013"

LA GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT LEAVES OUT MESSI & SPANIARDS FROM "BEST XI 2013"

The below post highlights the "Best Ideal XI Team for 2013" by the French Sports paper "L´Equipe". This post is the "Best XI Team for 2013" by Italian Sports paper "La Gazzetta dello Sports". If the French left out Sergio Ramos, the Italians left out FC Barcelona player Lionel Messi. And while the French at least included a Spaniard in FC Barcelona defender Jordi Alba, the Italian list has no Spaniards.

Football typically never puts everyone in accorde & the French vs Italian list highlights this fact.  Where both papers do coincide is the dominance of Bayern Munich players & the presence of two of the three "FIFA Golden Ball 2013" candidates in Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo & Bayern Munich player Franck Ribery. Surprising no Spaniards with the Italians.
