You may have heard the World Cup’s happening, so we’ve put together a 100% objective assessment of UK tech’s finest playmakers, who put in creative, resilient performances week-in, week-out. The definitive UK tech XI. In other words – feel free to argue with us. #UKTechXI
9 – No dream team is complete without a headline maker. The star that creates opportunities that no-one thought possible. A player that leads from the front and inspires the whole team. On their day, they’re not just unplayable, they’re Improbable.
10 – Monzo – The Dele Alli of banking. Young, cool, creative, constantly disproving the haters and winning fans around the world. In demand, and with a long career ahead of them. When they’re on the pitch, anything’s on the cards.
11 – A player with a maturity beyond their years and one of the first names on the team sheet. A reliable presence with exceptional Deliveroo.
5 – A talismanic presence. Putting in a shift on and off the pitch, they’re running the party in the Boiler Room and the dressing room.
8 – Bringing extensive international experience and genuine pace. Having moved around a lot in their careers, they’re Transferwise.
3 – They’re cantering down the left flank like a Redknapp-era Gareth Bale, tearing the competition apart, and they’re UKFast.
7 – Skyscanner on the wing. Or something about aerial ability. Choose your pun.
6 – A FanDuel favourite and part of the old guard. They know the game inside and out. Nothing’s getting past them.
2 – BigChange – no nonsense, well positioned, always on the ball.
4 – Their unorthodox style grabs the attention of the crowd, and their acceleration potential makes them dangerous. They link up well with the midfield too. SocialChain.
1 – Darktrace – intriguingly enigmatic, but ultimately a big presence, and a safe and secure pair of hands.
The Manager – bringing the team together, and supporting through forward-thinking tactics. It’s the Matt Hancock App.
It’s a pretty intimidating lineup we have to say. How will they fare? Who would you pick? Let us know. @TechNation #UKTechXI
