The team included five Real Madrid players, two Juventus players and one player from Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain each.

The country that cast the most votes for the team was India, with around 8 percent of the total votes, followed by Poland and Turkey with around 5 percent each.

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

Gianluigi Buffon was voted as the preferred goalkeeper, receiving 41.8% of the votes in his position. 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 is in at centre back while Marcelo is on the left.

Luka Modric (Real Madrid): 48.5%. At 39-years of age, Buffon became the oldest to grace the UEFA team of the year.

The Belgian duo are the only Premier League selections included in the list, with the team dominated by five selections from back-to-back Champions League winners Real Madrid.

UEFA have announced their official 2017 Team of the Year, but Neymar did not make the cut.
