Fake World Cup Team of the Tournament fools the internet

Recently a photo emerged of what everyone thought was the official World Cup Team of the Tournament, which went on to do the rounds on social media, but it turns out it is fake.

The team caused plenty of controversy as it included some bizarre and rather questionable player selections.

There was no confirmation of such on FIFA’s official website or on their Twitter account and users started to twig that something didn’t seem right.

Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois, who picked up the Golden Glove award for best goalkeeper of the tournament wasn’t chosen, instead it was France’s goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

A selection saw the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ivan Perisic and N’Golo Kante all missing out.

Fans on Twitter started to realise the team was a photoshop fake while others point out that FIFA did not release a Team of the Tournament for the last World Cup.
