talkSPORT is your home of the 2018 World Cup. Tune in all throughout the summer to hear live commentary of every game, and visit talkSPORT.com for expert views and analysis of the big games and key moments from Russia.

Using only those playing at the World Cup, talkSPORT.com has come up with a starting XI to rival any top team and it didn't require large wads of cash to put together.

What do you think? Only players who have actually moved between clubs have been selected, meaning those who progressed from youth academies are out, so there is no Lionel Messi, for example.

GOALKEEPER
Alisson, Brazil (Internacional to Roma for €8m in 2016)

DEFENCE
Marcelo, Brazil (Fluminense to Real Madrid for €6.5m in 2006)

Gerard Pique (Manchester United to Barcelona for £5m in 2008)

Vincent Kompany (Hamburg to Manchester City for £6m in 2008)

Dani Carvajal, Spain (Bayer Leverkusen to Real Madrid for £5.5m in 2013)

MIDFIELD
Dele Alli, England (MK Dons to Tottenham for £5m in 2015)

Leon Goretzka, Germany (Schalke to Bayern Munich for free in 2018)

Christian Eriksen, Denmark (Ajax to Tottenham for £11.5m in 2013)

ATTACK
Thomas Lemar, France (Caen to Monaco for £3.4m in 2015)

Robert Lewandowski, Poland (Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich for free in 2014)

Dries Mertens, Belgium (PSV to Napoli for £8m in 2013)

Have a look at the line-up below and see what you think. Would this team rival the most expensive XI at the World Cup where Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo roam?
