This is a great topic. However, I'll put my World Starting 11 from 1997-1998 to the present day. In 1997 Ronaldo joined Inter and as a 7 year old kid I fell in love with him. He's the reason I became an Inter fan. Then in the summer of 1998, the World Cup was held in France and that's the first competition, which I remember vividly.
As an Inter fan, I also might be slightly biased in my selection.

Manager: Sir Alex Ferguson
--------------------- Pagliuca
Zanetti ----- Nesta ----- Maldini --- Roberto Carlos
Cr. Ronaldo -- Xavi --- Iniesta --- Totti
--------------------------- Messi
------------------- Ronaldo

Edit: The longer I think about this, the harder it gets to pick players. I replaced Giggs with Totti. They're both great players, but Totti's ability to score places him above Giggs. I also replaced Gerrard with Xavi, simply because you can't seperate Xavi, Iniesta and Messi. But I believe that Gerrard is slightly better than Xavi and Iniesta, because of his defensive skills. It's also hard to leave Zidane out of this team
