Adidas Vs. Nike: Which World Cup XI Wins?
Adidas or Nike - who you got?
The World Cup is next week. NEXT WEEK - Hallelujah.
We are just a few days away from a period of solid football dominating and taking over our television screens.
Nations competing in Russia have finally filed their 23-man squad.
And here's some more hypothetical fun in the form of a XI made up of Adidas and Nike athletes. They both make for tasty, tasty line-ups.
Naturally, Adidas and Nike's marque draws (Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi) spearhead their respective side.
Partnering Ronaldo, we've opted for prolific England international Harry Kane.
As for Team Adidas, Messi is joined in attack with Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Salah, who, despite injured, was named in Egypt's World Cup squad.

Team Nike's middle of the park consists of a mouth-watering five-man midfield in the shape of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Christian Eriksen, Andres Iniesta and Luka Modric.
Opposite them; England's Dele Alli, France's Paul Pogba and Germany's Toni Kroos. Formidable.
Marcelo, Vincent Kompany (here's hoping he's fully fit following an injury scare), Cesar Azpilicueta and Jordi Alba complete a back four who sit in front of Spain's No.1 David De Gea.
While Jerome Boateng, Thiago Silva and Sergio Ramos round off Nike's defensive line, with Belgium stopper Thibaut Courtois between the sticks.
