The FIFA FIF Pro World XI for 2011 has been published and the final XI will be announced on January 12, 2012. The announcement will occur during the FIFA Ballon D'Or award ceremony.

The news was published by ESPN Soccernet and The Premier League Insider decided to make its personal choice:

Goalkeeper

Edwin Van Der Sar (Holland/Manchester United)

Defender

Gerard Pique (Spain/FC Barcelona)

Eric Abidal (France/FC Barcelona)

Rio Ferdinand (England/Manchester United)

Midfield
