World XI 2014 : LB

Filipe Luis (BRA – ATM)

It was a tough choice between him and Real

Madrid’s Daniel Carvajal ( Philipp Lahm would

automatically move to the other side ) and the

Brazilian won the spot. Luis excelled throughout

last season, especially on the defensive side.

Statistics can show how defensively strong the

Brazilian was. According to Squawka, he made

1.53 interceptions and 2.13 clearances per La

Liga match. He also won around 64 percent of

the tackles he attempted. His countryman Luis

Filipe Scolari received a ton of criticism for not

calling the Atletico player and it turned out to

be right. The Brazilian side was humiliated, if

nothing more, against Germany in the semis.
