Many of the players are similar to the FIFPro World XI, which was announced on January 17, but there is no space for Erling Haaland and David Alaba in the fan-voted FUT TOTY.

The front three features Messi, Lewandowski and FIFA 22 cover star Kylian Mbappe.

Donnarumma has been selected in goal behind a back four of Man City’s Joao Cancelo and Ruben Dias as well as PSG’s Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi.
