UEFA assembles Team of the Year for 2017

Fans Team of the Year 2017

De Bruyne lines up in midfield alongside Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Hazard while up front, unsurprisingly, are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Football enthusiasts from around the world voted to pick the stellar eleven with 2 players from the Premier League, two from the Serie A and one from the French Ligue 1.

European football's governing body announced its annual Team of the Year on Thursday, after nearly 8.8 million votes were cast by users on UEFA's official website.

The other three players in the team are: Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos received the most votes with 588k and is joined in the team by fellow Real team-mates Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. The squad is as follows: Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus).




Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was the most voted player being selected by 588,315 users, some 73,7% of the total vote.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid): 55.7%.

To the surprise of absolutely nobody, European champions Real Madrid dominated the UEFA Team of the Year shortlist with 11 nominees, as the Premier League continued to lag behind their Spanish rivals.

"There are two newcomers in the line-up - Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, who have the honour of being the first Belgians to be represented in the Fans' Team of the Year".

UEFA have named both and in their team of the year.
