Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who were integral to the Reds' success last season, headline the list while 'the wall of Napoli' Kalidou Koulibaly was also included.
 
The trio were all nominated for the FIFPro World11 and are widely considered as some of the best talents in world football due to their consistency at the upper echelons of European football.
 
Another notable name was AFC Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech, who played a crucial role in the Eredivisie side's surprise run towards the semi-final of the competition last season.
 
It's interesting to note, all ten players included represented their respective countries at the recent 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
