Fans can't quite believe how Dele Alli has been included in FIFA's FIFPRO Men's World XI shortlist.

The 55-man list was voted for by professional footballers all around the world, with players asked to vote for the best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards in 2020.

And Alli's inclusion has caused quite a stir with football fans, who can't believe how he's managed to get a look-in.
