A fair share of football fans have thrown their full support behind their club winning the league title over their country lifting the World Cup.
SPORTbible posted a readers' poll on Twitter asking fans if they would prefer their side won the highest domestic honours or their country capturing the biggest prize on the international stage.
And 60 per cent of fans chose their respective countries to win the World Cup over their clubs' domestic success.
However, 40 per cent of fans put their full support behind their club over their country.
Would you rather your club win the league title or your country win the World Cup? :trophy:

Many fans didn't hold back their feelings about their teams winning the league.
"I'd rather Liverpool win the League Cup than England win the World Cup," one supporter tweeted.
A second Liverpool fan said: "Most Liverpool fans who live in England and were born in Liverpool don't give a s**t about England and I've seen it. I would rather see us win the league, but I want England to be successful as well."
Someone else posted: "I couldn't care less if England ever win the World Cup."
A fourth added: "Club over country."
But many fans had no problem putting their country ahead of their club.
"Seriously, who picks their club over their country?" one fan tweeted.
Someone else posted: "As much I would love Arsenal to win the league, I can just imagine the scenes if England won the World Cup. Sorry, the whole country came to a standstill after the Columbia game FFS. Would be quality.
A third said: "I want Argentina to win the World Cup than I want my country to (they are literally in the 90s in rankings). My club wins the league regularly. Not a problem."
A fourth added: "I've seen my club lift the PL, but I haven't seen my country lift the World Cup in my lifetime."
