BabyJet best XI: Gyan picks his all time dream team

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan appears to be trying to keep everybody happy after revealing that his ultimate team contains four Brazilians, two French heroes, one German, Italian, Dutch and four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.

Speaking to Accra-based radio station Starr FM, the 29-year-old, Gyan who has played for Ghana since 2003, found no space for any of his countrymen.

Opting for a fashionable 4-4-2 diamond formation, Gyan chose ex-AC Milan goalkeeper Dida in goal.

The Al Ain striker’s back-four consists of former Brazlian full backs Roberto Carlos and Cafu, with ex-French rearguards Lilian Thuram and Laurent Blanc as central defenders.

Ex-Arsenal midfield powerhouse Patrick Vieira is placed in a defensive midfield role, with former Italy and Juventus winger Mauro Camronesi on the right and and ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Ballack on the left.

Ex-Dutch playmaker Marc Overmars, who played for Arsenal and Barcelona between 1997 and 2001, is placed in an attacking midfield role behind a deadly two-man attack.

Brazil legend Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima and Argentina captain Lionel Messi, both of whom pulled on the famous blue and red shirt of FC Barcelona, are given spots in attack in Gyan’s XI.

There is no place for Real Madrid’s current Ronaldo, Cristiano, despite his extraordinary goal-scoring form for Los Blancos since joining them from Manchester United in 2009.

Below is Asamoah Gyan’s best XI players
Goalkeeper:  Dida
Right Back:  Cafu
Left Back:  Roberto Carlos
Central Defence:  Liliam Thuram and Laurent Blanc
