Lionel Messi launched the election of the FIFA FIFPro World XI 2011 last Friday, but he wasn’t the only Barcelona star to cast his vote.


It’s a tradition that the World Player of the year before launches the election of the FIFA FIFPro World XI, so like last year FIFPro was heading for Barcelona last Friday.


Leo Messi casted the first vote for the World XI, and thousands of his colleagues over the world will follow in the upcoming weeks, first of them his team mates from Barcelona.


Villa, Xavi, Iniesta, Piqué and Puyol followed, all of them chosen in the FIFPro World XI 2010. And there were more like Pedro, Busquets, Fabregas and the new kid on the block Thiago Alcantara.


Next to them the whole squad of Barcelona B joined the election. As Thiago Alcantara made the jump from Barcelona B to the first team in this season FIFPro is curious which of the talents will be playing in Camp Nou in the near future.


The FIFA FIFPro World XI 2011 will be revealed during the FIFA Ballon D’Or on the 9th of January 2012 in Zurich.
