Sterling picks Messi, Ronaldo and five Man City stars in FIFA 18 Squad Battle team

The England international put together a strong squad in a 4-3-3 formation, with only three teams represented in the first XI

Raheem Sterling has named Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi alongside five Manchester City team-mates in his ideal FIFA 18 starting XI.

The 22-year-old has placed himself on the left side of the attack beside the Real Madrid and Barcelona stars.

Despite the presence of the Clasico icons, Sterling is the highest-rated player in the side with his special 99-rated card, complete with incredible pace, dribbling and passing figures.

Behind that deadly attack is a strong midfield with fellow City stars Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva playing alongside Casemiro. 

The lowest-rated player in the team at 78, left-back Benjamin Mendy features in the defence opposite Kyle Walker, with Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos in the centre.

And Sterling has placed another familiar face between the sticks in team-mate Ederson.

The world's most expensive player, Neymar, has been dropped to the bench alongside Thiago Alcantara, David de Gea, Dele Alli, Gareth Bale and two more City colleagues John Stones and Fernandinho.

The England international named his team "Sterling's Ballers" and players can face them in Squad Battles mode in Ultimate Team.
