Rio Ferdinand's toughest ever Champions League XI

Steven Gerrard may have had the Hollywood passes but now Rio Ferdinand’s got the Hollywood makeup.

Starring in The Substitute, a new Heineken campaign which sees the former Manchester United defender switching places with an office worker so the fan doesn’t miss his Champions League game, Ferdinand’s been transformed by Robert Kurtzman, he behind the film prosthetics from Scream to Hulk.

To mark Ferdinand’s stunt, we asked him to assemble his all-time toughest Champions League opponents into a dream team. Electing for a 4-3-3, his XI won’t disappoint you.
