Alisson chooses ideal XI

Roma and Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker chose his all-time dream team, including Paolo Maldini, Fabio Cannavaro, Andrea Pirlo and Francesco Totti.

The shot-stopper gave his ideal XI for Roma TV and showed his admiration for Italian football.

Defenders Maldini and Cannavaro were given roles, as was midfielder Pirlo and Alisson’s former Roma teammate Totti.

Most of the others had also featured for Serie A sides during their careers, such as ex-Parma goalkeeper Claudio Taffarel, Roma and Milan full-back Marcos Cafu and one-time Inter left-back Roberto Carlos.

Zinedine Zidane at Juventus and Brazilian Ronaldo with both Inter and Milan completed the side.

Only Lionel Messi and Alisson’s current Brazil teammate Neymar had not at some stage featured in Serie A.

Alisson’s Dream Team: Taffarel; Cafu, Maldini, Cannavaro, Roberto Carlos; Pirlo, Totti, Zidane; Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar
