10th October 2013
It's again the time of the year when representatives of footballers' associations are travelling all over the world to invite players to participate in the vote for the FIFA FIFPro World XI 2013. Local players from the Premier Division, 1st Division and also 2nd division players from the Maltese leagues join their peers from all over the world and cast their votes.
MFPA representatives are visiting local clubs to distribute voting forms to players.
The players enjoy themselves voting for FIFPro World XI. Some consult each other and share their preferences while others prefer to vote alone without discussing or showing their preferences.
Obviously players do tend to vote and include their favorite stars and also players coming from their favorite team. Names like Messi, Ronaldo, Pirlo, Balotelli, Lahm, Ribery, Buffon, Bale, Rooney, Falcao and Ibrahimovic will certainly be popular names on the voting documents.
Last year the Maltese players almost performed an en plein. They voted for 10 out of the winning 11 players chosen.
