Antonio Rudiger is a pretty experienced defender now, with plenty of games played in the Bundesliga, Serie A and now the Premier League, as well as plenty of European experience too.
He’s the perfect man then, to ask about the toughest XI players he’s faced.
That’s exactly what Sky Sports did, and the Germany international reeled off a really interesting side which just shows the kind of stars he’s come up against over the years.

🛡 – Virgil van Dijk
💥 – Cristiano Ronaldo
🧙♂ – Lionel Messi
