The FIFA/FIFPro World XI was the first award announced at the FIFA Ballon d'Or 2011 gala, with Pele introducing the award. The World XI incredibly contained players from only three teams, though it was obvious that those three teams were the best three in the world last season. Manchester United have two representatives in the team, while four Real Madrid players and an astonishing five Barcelona players made the team.
