Samsung is putting together a team of the 11 best players in the world on a team called the “GALAXY 11″ to take on a threatening alien race in a “winner takes all” match. They’re announcing the team week by week. Their latest addition to the team is Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is clearly one of the best players in the world, not only is he a 2013 Ballon d’Or finalist, he is the favorite to win the award. Since Lionel Messi’s initial selection video, the rest have been relatively short videos under 20 seconds. Ronaldo’s was a full minute. He is playing against a woman’s volleyball team by himself, but he is only using his soccer skills.
Then some men enter the room and he turns and walks off and speaks into his Galaxy Gear device to clear his schedule, sensing the imposing and difficult challenge awaiting the team.
Ronaldo is the 13th and final member to join the team, which includes: Lionel Messi (Argentina), Mario Gotze (Germany), Oscar dos Santos (Brazil), Wu Lei (China), Stephan El Shaarawy (Italy), Victor Moses (Nigeria), Radamel Falcao (Colombia), Lee Chung-Yong (Korea), Iker Casillas (Spain), Wayne Rooney (UK), Landon Donovan (US) and Alexander Kerzhakov (Russia).
No two players from the same country, it is truly an international team.
This all-star team will attempt to save the planet from alien domination in a “winner takes all” match on a virtual field. On December 18, Samsung will provide additional details and insights into the full story of how each player was recruited to join the Galaxy 11 team.
