Carragher said that fans must name their ultimate XI, substitutes and manager based on certain criteria.

Fans can only choose a specific nationality once and the player must have won the Champions League with that club.

And Carragher added that the player chosen could play for more than one winner as he kicked off the challenge by naming his picks.

The Sky Sports pundit selected Petr Cech (Czech Republic), who represents Chelsea for the team, between the sticks.

Moreno Torricelli (Juventus and Italy) is out at right-back while Bayern Munich star David Alaba (Austria) is his team's left-back.

The back four is completed with the centre-back pairing of Jurgen Kohler (Borussia Dortmund and Germany) and Fernando Hierro (Real Madrid and Spain).

Didier Deschamps (Marseille and France) is the holding midfielder, with Steven Gerrard (Liverpool and England) ahead of him alongside Clarence Seedorf (Ajax and Netherlands).

Playing behind the two strikers is none other than Brazilian legend Kaka, who won the Champions League with AC Milan in 2007.

Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is partnered alongside former Barcelona teammate Samuel Eto'o in the team's striking options.

Ronaldo, who has won five Champions Leagues across his time with Manchester United and Real Madrid, didn't make the bench.

Carragher named Deco (Porto and Portugal) as his only substitute for the team.

The former Liverpool defender also revealed that legendary former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson would be the manager of his team.
