UEFA Announce Official 2017 Team Of The Year, Neymar Snubbed

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.

Eden Hazard has been rewarded for his fantastic year of 2017 with a spot in the UEFA Fan's 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.

The rest of the team is star-studded as you would expect.

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo featured in 70% of teams and teammate Sergio Ramos was the most popular pick, appearing in 73.3% of sides.


UEFA announced Thursday a team of 11 players deemed by fans as the best performers of 2017.

But surprisingly, PSG's world record signing Neymar, who came third in the voting for the 2017 Ballon d'Or, misses out.

In terms of players, the Spanish league dominated the final selection with six making the final team.

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. With one more appearance, he will be equalling former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas' record of most UEFA team of the year mentions.
