Under 23 Best XI vs Over 33 Best XI

When and if existing football players retire, young footballers will vie to replace or even surpass them.

The majority of new football stars are following in the footsteps of some of today's over-33-year-old players, who appear to be nearing the conclusion of their careers. 

Gianluigi Donnarumma, a 22-year-old Italian goalkeeper, has attempted to live up to the comparisons to Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer. He and Italy were recently crowned Euro 2020 champions. 

If the under 23 best 11 squad were put against the over 33 best XI, the under 23s would have a better chance of winning because they are still youthful and hungry for victory. 

While seasoned strikers such as Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Cristiano Ronaldo may pose a threat to the youthful stars, skilled finishers such as Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, and Kylian Mbappe will likely do their best to score. Each of them is a strong finisher.
