    I did a similar thread in the cricket section few years ago, so will do it here. As the title says, just make your picks covers the timeline you have been following & started to understand football well.

    I start from EURO 96. Not a fan of defenders, so I'm using a 3-4-3 diamond formation to include most of the best attacking players i've seen.

    ------------------Schmeichel-----------

    -------Campbell----Ferdinand------Maldini-------

    ---------------------Scholes-----------------

    ------------Pirlo----------------Zidane-----------

    ----------------------Bergkamp--------------------

    Giggs-----------------Ronaldo----------------Henry

    Honorable mentions: Jose Luis Chilavert, Xavi, Gascoinge, Batistuta, Yaya Toure, Vieiri, Gerrard etc etc

    Mine would be very similar to that I think. I started some time before the 2006 WC IIRC, and my first match was the 2002 final.

    Would probably go for Kahn instead of Schmeichel, Ronaldinho instead of Giggs, Iniesta instead of Pirlo and Xavi instead of Scholes.

    -----------------------Kahn-----------------------

    ---------Campbell----Ferdinand------Maldini--------

    ---------------------Xavi--------------------------

    ------------Iniesta----------------Zidane-----------

    ----------------------Bergkamp---------------------

    Ronaldinho-----------------Ronaldo------------Henry

    Very difficult to select a favourite eleven but I've given it a shot.

    Jay Jay Okocha is my favourite player, some of the tricks and flicks he used to pull off were amazing.

    In case you're wondering, yes, i liked AC Milan. Always been a Juve fan, always will be, but i really liked that mid-2000s Milan team.
