Xavi Reveals His Best Ever British XI

Some may scoff at the inclusion of the Southampton and #England keeper, but anyone that saw Celtic play Barcelona at Celtic Park in the #Champions League in both the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons will surely understand his inclusion. Dubbed “the yellow wall” by the #Catalan press following his displays against the Spanish giants, Forster was simply colossus as he helped Neil Lennon’s side to a famous 2-1 victory two years ago, while he was somehow even better the following campaign, despite losing 1-0. #Xavi has argued that, in the games between the two sides, the 6 ft 7 in stopper has put in “incredible performances every time and made some of the best saves that I have ever seen.” To receive such praise from a player with as much standing in the game as the Spaniard is some feat, and the 26-year-old has carried on where he left off since moving to the Premier League this summer.
