The Omission Of Vinicius Junior From FIFA FIFPro Men’s World XI For 2022
Vinicius Jr was undoubtedly one of the best players in the world in 2022. He was the driving force behind Real Madrid‘s incredible run to win La Liga and the Champions League titles in the same season. He scored 22 goals and tallied 20 assists in the season, making his contribution to the team an impressive 42-goal contribution.
The 22–year–old winger had a breakthrough season in 2022, producing consistent performances for Madrid and was a key figure in the team‘s success. Despite his excellent form, Vinicius was left out of the FIFPro World XI.
The public outcry was inevitable, with many questioning why the Brazilian was excluded from the list of the best players in the world. The selection of players was made by professional footballers from around the world, voting for their peers.
The voting system is designed to reward players based on their performances in the past year, and it‘s possible that Vinicius‘ lack of international success was a key factor in his exclusion. While he was a standout performer for Real Madrid, he was unable to replicate the same level of success with the Brazilian national team.
It‘s clear that Vinicius should have been included in the FIFPro World XI, based on his performances for Real Madrid in 2022. He was a key player in the team‘s success and, without him, it‘s likely that Madrid would not have been able to achieve the same level of success.
Ultimately, it‘s a huge disappointment for Vinicius that his stellar season was not rewarded with a place in the FIFPro World XI. However, the young Brazilian can still take pride in his achievements and use this experience as motivation to push himself even further in the coming years.
