  • Fans Team of the Year 2017

Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo join the eleven which is also composed of: Buffon (Juventus), Alves (Juventus / PSG), Chiellini (Juventus), De Bruyne (Manchester City), Hazard (Chelsea) and Barcelona's Lionel Messi. UEFA picked its all-star team after 8.8 million votes.

Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.

Interestingly, Ronaldo was the only player to make it to the team from the top 10 most expensive players of all time.

Chelsea and Manchester City are the two English clubs represented but it is European champions Real Madrid who unsurprisingly dominate the selection. A poll of users on UEFA.com picked Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Marcelo among the best players of previous year.


Sergio Ramos received the most votes with 588,315, and is one of five Real Madrid players named in the side.

At 39-years-old, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon extends his record as the oldest player to make the team while the only other Serie A player included is team-mate Giorgio Chiellini.

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian player Dani Alves was chosen by the fans for the right-back spot.

Nearly 8.8million fans voted in this year's poll to pick the UEFA Team of the Year, and the governing body has revealed some shock results.
