Rio Ferdinand got the nod in goal, with Carrick opting for the Englishman over goalkeepers David de Gea and Edwin van der Sar in quite an unconventional selection. (h/t Daily Star)

“Rio went in goal once, so I’m saying Rio can play half-and-half. I apologise to David [De Gea] and Edwin [Van der Sar], but I want an outfielder.”

Carrick picked himself as the defender in the side, opting to field Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs in the middle of the park. (h/t Daily Star)

“I’m going Rio, Scholesy, Giggsy, Wazza, Ronaldo… I’ll go all from the past then so that I’m not putting anyone in from the current team – I’m not leaving anyone out then.”
