Ronaldo and Messi make UEFA team of the year

Over 8.7 million of votes have been cast to decide UEFA's annual Team of the Year and the results have already caused huge debate among football fans.

De Gea was one of Manchester United's most important players as they claimed two trophies in 2017, including the Europa League.

Barcelona talisman Leo Messi along with his fierce rival Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to lead the team with Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne forming a bolstering midfield.

In goal is Gianluigi Buffon with a back four of Dani Alves, Sergio Ramos, Giorgio Chiellini and Marcelo.

The wide midfielders were the only English Premier League representatives - Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.

Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid): 73.7%.

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

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%.

PSG star Neymar - who joined the French giants this summer for a startling 222 million euros ($267 million) and became the world's most expensive player ever - was missing from UEFA Fans' Team of the Year yet again. UEFA reporters and journalists handpicked the fifty players on the basis of their display for their club and country in the UEFA competitions.
