Over 50,000 FIFPro professional players sent in their votes, and elected the following FIFA/FIFPro World XI for 2012: 
IKER CASILLAS, DANI ALVES, MARCELO, GERARD PIQUÉ, SERGIO RAMOS, ANDRÉS INIESTA, XABI ALONSO, XAVI HERNANDEZ, CRISTIANO RONALDO, RADAMEL FALCAO, and LIONEL MESSI.
Going by the votes from the professional players who picked the FIFA FIFPro World XI of 2012, it is quite clear they did not look any further than La Liga for the majority of their selections, no variety in their selection.
Representing five countries in all, every one of players on the list have their root in the Spanish top flight. The dream team of 2012 consists of  five Real Madrid players, five from Barcelona and one from Atletico Madrid.

It would have been nice to at least add the likes of Demba Ba, or even, Frank Lampard to spice up the list, so here's your challenge, professional or non-professional, CREATE your OWN list World XI Players, just for fun :-)
