Steven Gerrard leaves Cristiano Ronaldo out of his dream team and only picks ONE Liverpool player

Former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard has named his dream football team, with Cristiano Ronaldo missing out.

In an interview with The Mail, the 39-year-old opted instead for a 4-2-3-1 formation with Lionel Messi, Alessandro del Piero and Kylian Mbappe playing behind Didier Drogba up front.

Gerrard chose Atletico Madrid's current shot stopper Jan Oblak as his goalkeeper, while his centre-back pairing was made up of Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany and Napoli stalwart Kalidou Koulibaly.

At right-back, he went for Brazilian icon Cafu, while the other full-back position was reserved for the only Liverpool player in the 11 in Scotland's Andy Robertson.
