5 Players Who Should've Made FIFA's World XI

BR - At this week's Ballon d'Or 2012 presentation, that FIFA FIFPro World XI was announced.

The celebrated team, voted for by professional players only, has garnered some criticism for its alleged bias towards Spain. Every position is taken by a La Liga star, and all except Radamel Falcao, play for Real Madrid or Barcelona. (International)

Łukasz Piszczek is the only one of that 5 that could argue a place, although I'd give it to Lahm.

Joe Hart instead of Casillas is the biggest joke I've heard this year, it's only the 10th so it's early doors yet!

Casillas hands down the best, only Buffon came close across all competitions (club and national) and maybe Neuer if his 2nd half to the season wasn't so poor!

Unlike Hart's team he could get farther from the group stages in the champions and got the boot in the Europa.
Hart only manage to help his team win the league in goal differential. so please give it a break.

Pirlo should have been there and Pique/Marcelo shouldn't be. However, to put RVP over falcao pfffft.
