Chelsea defender John Terry is the only England player to make it into the World Cup squad of the tournament.
The 23 players, chosen by FIFA's technical study group, includes seven players from Italy and four from the other finalist France.
Terry makes it in even though most commentators believe central defensive partner Rio Ferdinand had a more impressive tournament.
Only one Brazilian makes it into the Mastercard all-star squad, Bayern Munich midfielder Ze Roberto.
