Millwall skipper Alex Pearce has picked his career best XI, which includes a five-times Premier League and Champions League winner, Republic of Ireland’s all-time top goalscorer, but picked just one current Lions player.
The 31-year-old defender chose a host of former teammates from his nine-year spell with Reading, but also from his short loan stint with Southampton back in 2008 and his brief international career with Ireland, in which he won seven caps.
Like Jed Wallace did, Pearce has also gone with a 4-3-3 formation, overlooking current Millwall number one Bartosz Bialkowski and going for Reading legend and Australian goalkeeper Adam Federici.
Across an experienced back-line, Pearce opted for former Stoke City man Andy Griffin and ex-Leeds United legend Ian Harte, with the well-decorated John O’Shea partnering Kasaprs Gorkss in the heart of the defence.
Moving into midfield, Peace has chosen a quality trio of three current Premier League players in Jack Cork, Morgan Schneiderlin and Everton attacking man Gyfil Sigurdsson.
Up front, Shane Long and Wallace occupy the wide roles, with legendary Ireland man Robbie Keane playing the long striking role.
