Glastonbury Festival: BBC Sport readers offer their #GlastoXI

Dolly Parton, Joey Barton, Lady Gaga and Yaya Toure
The BBC Sport audience mashed up Dolly Parton, Joey Barton, Lady Gaga and Yaya Toure

Portable toilets, mud, traffic jams, mud, cold showers, mud.

Pilgrimage to Glastonbury Festival, despite its sometimes challenging lack of home comforts, is the highlight of the year for many and BBC Sport could not resist getting involved in the fun.

In Sportsday Live, we asked you for your #GlastoXI contributions via social media, suggesting footballers who boast names which could easily be merged with those of pop stars.

You responded in your thousands and from 'Chadli Drawn Boy' to 'Szczesny Hawkes' we loved the contributions. Here we present the official Glastonbury XI.

The manager - Moyes II Men

Moyes II Men will be assisted by Public Lawrie McMenemy in leading the side.

The tempo of this team will be set by playmaker Tinchy Sneijder

The bench

As the saying goes, the modern game is a squad one and these guys could warm the bench, perhaps even break out into a song or two to get the crowd going.

The #GlastoXI teamsheet includes your substitute suggestions and had to be submitted to authorities before Florence and the Machine headline on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Friday.
