The Premier League has been the highest competition in England since 1992, thus leaving out several excellent footballers who have played in the island in the past.
Still, one gets a lot of sweat when making an ideal selection and still feels guilty about not fitting players like Rio Ferdinand, Petr Cech, Roy Keane, Sergio Agüero, David Beckham, Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, Luis Suárez, Gianfranco Zola, Wayne Rooney or Patrick Vieira into the line-up.
