Good lineup but I would personally include Carvajal instead of Nacho and Michel instead of Koke.

I’m jealous of towns/cities that can field a full 11, all we have is Clarke Carlisle and Phil Jones.

Never seen him play but surely Eddie Colman would fit in that side ?

Surely Nat Lofthouse, Simone Perotta, David Platt and Trevor Sinclair should be somewhere in the list?

I'd go:
Joe Corrigan
Neville Brown Jagielka Neville
Butt
Scholes Platt
Rashford Lee Lofthouse​

Greater Glasgow would have a belting team, but within Glasgow:
Dalglish - McGrory
Morton - Auld - Murdoch - Henderson
Robertson - Miller - McNeill - McGrain
Simpson
That's a @Pat_Mustard crafted midfield if ever I saw one.

Could also go,

Kluivert-Bergkamp
Rensenbrink---Cruyff---Rijkaard-------Gullit
Krol------------Israel--- Van der Hart--Reiziger
Van Beveren

Amsterdam is loaded for this game. Depending on the leniency of the geography, Koemanx2, Rep and, at a stretch, Neeskens could also be included.

This one is pretty amazing for a city like that:

CB: Rinus Israël
CB: Daley Blind
LB: Ruud Krol

DM: Frank Rijkaard
DM: Nigel De Jong
AM: Ruud Gullit
AM: Johan Cruyff

ST: Patrick Kluivert
ST: Dennis Bergkamp

Subs: Jan van Beveren, Urby Emmanuelson, Denny Landzaat, Piet Keizer, Bryan Roy, Rob Rensenbrink, Wim Kieft.

Probably missed a couple of big names too.

Missed Platt. Comes from Chadderton. Stretching the borders a bit but still Greater Manchester. Give you that!

Think you have to have David Platt in the XI! City’s mascot sees more action than Foden. Also think Butt over Stiles and Rashy over Lofthouse is controversial.

Also Geoff Hurst and Jimmy Armfield deserve a place in the 16.

Is this a London team? Moore is an Essex boy and Sterling is from Kingston Jamaica, not Kingston London!

To stick with the Argentine theme, Rosario:

Di María - Icardi - Messi
Kily González - Banega - Marangoni - Maxi Rodríguez
Ruggeri - F.Vairo - Garay
Bonano​

subs: GK, Killer, Musacchio, Scaloni, Ansaldi, Lo Celso, Lavezzi, Ángel Correa, Libonatti

Great in the offensive areas, alright for CBs, not so much at FB and especially lacking holding mids (unless I'm forgetting someone).

Greater Paris is insane. I'm on my phone so can't do all the research but we're talking Pogba, Mbappe, Henry, Kante, Mahrez, Martial, Coman...

What Chadderton’s pushing the borders for you but an Italian footballer born all the way in Ashton isn’t?! :lol:

London is probably quite good? Beckham, Rio, Terry, Cashley, Kane... can't be bothered to research

Rio de Janeiro for sure. Ronaldo and Romario up front.
I think you’re onto the winner:

Ronaldo - Romario
Zico - Jairzinho
Alvim - Nelinho
Nílton Santos - Carlos Mozer - Thiago Silva - Carlos Alberto
Diego Alves​

Proud Preston:

Alan Kelly
Mark Lawrenson, Phil Jones, Andrew Flintoff, Edith Rigby
Mike Summerbee, Kevin Kilbane, John Inman, Sir Richard Arkwright
Sir Tom Finney, Roy Barraclough

Actually the more I look at it the more gay it gets, but hey ho, Sir Tom Finney would have won it on his own anyway.
