VIDEO: Ferdinand, Barton, Akinfenwa and Walker join forces to pick Ultimate FIFA team

Nicklas Bendtner the glaring omission

Someone at EA Sports wanted to see a fight.

The gaming giant stuck tough centre-back Rio Ferdinand, always mouthy Joey Barton, Adebayo “The Beast” Akinfenwa and Kyle “random inclusion” Walker into a room to select their ultimate world XI.

Surprisingly enough, the four English lads don’t select any homegrown players in their side which also has no room for Luis Suarez or Cesc Fabregas.

A measly two Premier League players make the cut in Sergio Aguero and Angel di Maria with five La Liga players getting the nod.

The motley crew were put together in anticipation of EA Sports’ release of their Team of the Year next Monday which will see the stats of the selected players given a boost in the video game.
