UEFA Fans' Team Of The Year 2017 Announced

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

Manchester City's De Bruyne and Chelsea's Hazard are the first Premier League players in the team since 2014 when Angel Di Maria was included while playing for Manchester United.

Sergio Ramos was the most selected player overall, being chosen in 73.7% of the voters' teams, followed by his teammate Marcelo, who appeared in 70% of the best XIs.

Fellow Belgian Kevin De Bruyne is the only other Premier League representative in the side while Gianluigi Buffon, the oldest ever player to make the team at 39, has received his fifth selection.

Well, over 8.7 millions votes tell us that five-time Ballon d'or victor Messi featured in 59.8% of teams, while Ronaldo was only chosen in 55.7%.

Hazard is voted as the third member of an attacking trident in a team dominated by Real Madrid stars after Zinedine Zidane's men retained the Champions League and beat Barca to winning LaLiga past year.

In terms of players under the age of 23, Joshua Kimmich, Marco Asensio, Dele Alli, Kylian Mbappe, Saul Niguez, Benjamin Mendy and Davinson Sanchez were named respectively.

Thoughts on UEFA's Team of the Year for 2017?

Neymar's move was sparked in part because of his man-of-the-match display in Barca's stunning 6-1 win over PSG in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie, which the French began with a 4-0 aggregate lead.
