Nine players make their debut on the 55-player shortlist that FIFPro, the worldwide players’ union, and FIFA announced for the 2016 FIFA FIFPro World11. The nine debutants are Serge Aurier, Hector Bellerin, Leonardo Bonucci, Kevin De Bruyne, Paulo Dybala, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kante, Dimitri Payet and James Vardy. Two players make their comeback after missing out in 2015, Claudio Bravo and Mesut Ozil, while Gonzalo Higuain returns after his only appearance in 2010.

Nine household names disappeared from this year’s shortlist: Iker Casillas (5 World 11 awards), John Terry (5 awards), Andrea Pirlo, Arjen Robben and Wayne Rooney (1 award each), Branislav Ivanovic, Yaya Touré, Vincent Kompany and Carlos Tévez. Three younger players also did not receive enough votes to be included on the list: Thiago Alcantara, Douglas Costa and James Rodriguez. It is the first time in the 12-year World 11-history that Pirlo and Rooney have not been picked for the last 55, leaving Gianluigi Buffon and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only two players who have always been chosen by their peers.

The FIFA 17 Team of the Year will be announced at The Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony in Zurich on 9 January 2017. The FIFA FIFPro World11 is decided by the players, for the players. It involves votes from nearly 25,000 professional footballers from about 70 different countries. Each player can select one goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards.
