Euros best XI

I was very surprised that Xavi Hernández was voted the best player of Euro 2008. I thought he played very well for Spain and was rightly in front of Cesc Fàbregas in the Spain's first XI. But best player...I thought not. Here's my first XI for the Euros.

Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas (Spain)
Left-back: Giovanni van Bronckhorst (Holland)
Centre-back: Pepe (Portugal)
Centre-back: Carlos Puyol (Spain)
Right-back: Vedran Ćorluka (Croatia)
Left Midfield: Yuri Zhirkov (Russia)
Defensive Midfielder: Marcos Senna (Spain)
Attacking Midfielder: Michael Ballack (Germany)
Right Midfield: Bastian Schweinsteiger (Germany)
Striker: Andrei Arshavin (Russia)
Striker: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden)

Coach: Guus Hiddink (Russia)
