Was having this discussion with someone at work.

Whenever you talk about the best players in the world, the same names come up Messi/Ronaldo/Suarez/Iniesta etc.

Who is currently best black player in the world in your opinion? (Mixed race players count, hispanic doesn't). Maybe we could even do a best XI.

Gotta be Yaya for me.

A midfield partnership of Yaya and Pogba, with a bit of Blaise Matuidi thrown in sounds decent!

Yaya Toure's massively overrated.

I'd go Pogba and Neymar. Kompany's up there too when he's actually fit.

Pretty sure Neymar is mix raced, almost half of Brazilians are.

Oops didn't see the mixed race part, thought you meant strictly black only seeing as someone who is mixed race could equally be considered white.

Yeah, we really need to decide on a colour range to help this thing.

What's considered black, from the van Bronckhorst Wanyama shade chart?

Pogba.

I still can't believe we let him go for nothing. He'd slot right into our midfield now and improve it tenfold.

Roque Junior. LOLZ.

It's Pogba. City should, and probably will, replace Yaya with him.

My Dream Team would be (Attacking minded 4-4-2):

Tim Howard

Marcelo/David Alaba
Boateng/Varane
Kompany
Dani Alves

Cuadrado
Pogba
Toure/Matuidi
Sterling

Sturridge
Neymar

If you're including Neymar then Thiago Silva is easily worth a place.

I still think facewise Neymar looks Japanese.

Probably Pogba.

Huge admirer of Lacazette, Umtiti and Drogba.

Pretty sexy team! I would personally find a spot for Daniel Amokachi up front.

If we're talking black players that EVER played the game then you guys are missing a shitload of them. Oliseh? Finidi? Okocha? Eto'o? Drogba? Weah? Essien? Kanu? Ikpeba? Heck, there're so many of them, I haven't even gone past 5 countries and 1 generation
