Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has surprisingly been nominated by FIFA in 2019 Team of the Year despite having a terrible year by his standards in 2018. He beats Liverpool goalie Alisson Becker, Bayern Munich shot-stopper Manuel Neuer, and Atletico Madrid wall Jan Oblak among others.
There is no doubt this will be controversial. The Spaniard had the lowest saves rate in Russia 2018 World Cup. He has conceded a lot of goal in 2018 especially the second part.
Real Madrid lifted UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup in 2018. For that reason, it is expected their players will dominated team of the year in all departments.
FIFA19 defence has left-back Marcelo and centre-backs Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane. Dutch centre-half Virgil van Dijk makes the list too after a great year with his new club Liverpool.
