The World Cup 2014 Dream Team

Here is our 2014 Dream Team, selected by our clients. Once again the team was selected in a strict 4-3-3 formation, which means that some players who otherwise might have appeared didn’t quite make it. For example, Yaya Toure was runner-up for the midfield even though he received almost 200 fewer votes than striker Luis Suárez. In any case, our Dream Team would clearly have no problems scoring.
