Carles Puyol is a football legend who has won it all. If you were to get an achievement for completing football then he would surely have it to his name, having won six La Liga titles, three Champions League, one World Cup and One European Championship.
During Puyol's decorated career, he crossed paths with some of the finest players in the game and so naturally when it comes to putting together an XI of his toughest opponents, you can expect it to pretty star-studded.
And star-studded is exactly what it is.

In midfield, Puyol has gone for the wonderfully gifted trio of Andrea Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf and Zinedine Zidane. Plenty of midfield brilliance going on in this team.
