Antoine Griezmann has revealed his picks for his FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and the Atletico Madrid man has included a number of surprising names.

One of the biggest surprises has been his own inclusion in the midfield as opposed to his favoured positions as either a number 10 or the main centre forward.

Griezmann has included two Atleti teammates - Jan Oblak and Marcos Llorente, and France teammate, Ousmane Dembele, fills in on the right side of the midfield. Legendary World Cup winners Laurent Blanc and Fabio Cannavaro take their place in the defence alongside '88 Euro winner Frank Rijkaard.

Roberto Baggio is deployed in the number 10 role behind Samuel Eto'o and the Brazilian Ronaldo, while Marc Overmars also makes the team.

Griezmann shared his team on social media, and Llorente responded saying "Another level that midfield". However, fans were quick to question why there was no place for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

The 30-year-old returned to Atletico on loan from Barcelona earlier this summer, and recently made his 400th LaLiga appearance after coming off the bench in a 2-0 win over his parent club.

He is also close to an international milestone with France, following his 98th cap in an exciting 3-2 comeback victory over Belgium during Thursday's UEFA Nations League clash.
