Scolari Picks Premier League Duo to Star This Summer
World Cup Winner, Big Phil, Calls Up Manchester United and Liverpool Stars to Feature in his Top Eleven.With football fever sweeping the globe this summer, Nordeus - the independent games studio - has today announced the signing of Luiz Felipe Scolari as their second managerial appointment for the International Cup feature in Top Eleven - the world’s most successful sports mobile game.
On day one, Scolari has kicked off in style by revealing his team to star at this summer’s tournament, naming Premier League Golden Glove winner, David de Gea in goal, and Player of the Season and Golden Boot winner, Mo Salah to lead the line in his #MyTopEleven.
In true Brazilian style, Big Phil has picked a very attacking side as Neymar and Ronaldo join Salah up top, with Messi and Vissel Kobe’s new signing, Iniesta sitting in behind. But he hasn’t forgotten his defensive roots naming a strong protective guard for de Gea. Real Madrid’s Casemiro is holding the defensive midfield role, sitting in front of fellow Champions League winners, Marcelo and Ramos. They are joined by Bayern Munich’s defensive duo of Hummels and Kimmich, adding German efficiency to his back four.
“We’re delighted to have signed Felipe and have him join the Top Eleven team to help us celebrate managers. On seeing his team selection, it’s no surprise he has named de Gea and Salah in his starting line-up, they’ve both have had outstanding seasons in the Premier League” said Ivana Davidov, Football Marketing Manager at Nordeus.
“But every team needs a manager to make key decisions, and not just players to make the headlines. We want to change that and celebrate managers by asking the community to rise up to the challenge and help us create the largest ever sticker album full of the real football heroes, the managers.”
Full Team: • de Gea - Spain - Manchester United • Kimmich - Germany - Bayern Munich • Ramos - Spain - Real Madrid • Hummels - Germany - Bayern Munich • Marcelo - Brazil - Real Madrid • Casemiro - Brazil - Real Madrid • Iniesta - Spain - Barcelona • Messi - Argentina - Barcelona • Neymar - Brazil - PSG • Salah - Egypt - Liverpool • Ronaldo - Portugal - Real Madrid
Scolari will feature in-game, this summer, alongside fellow acclaimed international manager and World Cup winner, Vicente del Bosque - who recently took part in a Career Day as part of the Top Eleven campaign, #WeAreManagers, celebrating all the work managers do, and asks people to rally behind them by creating their very own Manager Sticker at www.topeleven.com/wearemanagers. The more supporters the album gets, the more spectacular the Top Eleven celebrations of managers will become.
By signing up, managers will help unlock: a special celebratory song, a mural dedicated to managers, and other extravagant perks typically reserved for players. It’s about time for managers to receive some well-earned credit.
