The world’s best players at your fingertips!

Everyone loves compiling their all-star dream team – even Premier League footballers!

That's why the big bosses at EA Sports got four of football's most opinionated players round a table this week – to decide FIFA’s Ultimate Team of the Year

Rio Ferdinand, Joey Barton and Kyle Walker were joined by the strongest player in FIFA 15 (and possibly the world!) Adebayo Akinfenwa, of AFC Wimbledon, to thrash out their best XI of 2014!

Here are some highlights from the meet:

Rio: I read somewhere that Pep Guardiola said [Philip Lahm] is the most intelligent footballer he's over coached. Now he's coached Xavi, Messi….

Barton: He's never coached me though….

Barton: I would strongly push for Sergio Ramos, because he also gives you a goal threat

Walker: For me, I went Thiago Silva. He's a leader, but first and foremost he's a great footballer

Akinfenwa: I'm looking at the three [midfielders] who can cause ultimate damage, and that's Pogba, Hazard and Iniesta….

Rio: Who's better, Ronaldo or Messi?

Akinfenwa: For me, Messi's god given, but Ronaldo's worked. For me I think Ronaldo is complete

The XI players they settled on will have their stats updated and be placed in gold packs on FIFA Ultimate Team mode! Save your Ultimate Team coins, buy a special pack and keep your fingers crossed that you get one of the Ultimate XI!
