'My Greatest XI'

Yael Averbuch West

We sat down with former US International Yael Averbuch West and asked her to pick her GREATEST EVER XI.

The rules? There are only 3:

- Yael must captain the team

- Yael can pick the formation

- Yael must pick 11 players

That's it. Those are the rules.

So here is Yael's XI, which she described as 'a hybrid group of classic heroes and modern day stars', and we're here for it.

Formation: 3-4-3

GK: Hope Solo (USA)

CB: Becky Sauerbrunn (USA)

CB: Christie Rampone (USA)

CB: Wendie Renard (France)

LM: Formiga (Brazil)

CM: Lucy Bronze (England)

CM: Michelle Akers (USA)

RM: Yael Averbuch West (c) (USA)

ST: Sam Kerr (Australia)

ST: Mia Hamm (USA)

ST: Marta (Brazil)

Winners. Winners, everywhere!
