UEFA Announce Official 2017 Team Of The Year, Neymar Snubbed


As in previous years, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi grabbed the two forward spots to round out the fantasy team.

European football's governing body's official website announced the group, assembled in a fantasy Team of the Year, drawing on 8.8 million votes from fans worldwide.

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne and Chelsea's Eden Hazard have been named in UEFA's Team of the Year for 2017.

Despite becoming the world's most expensive player when he moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain and thriving in Ligue 1, Neymar did not make the cut.

Juventus pair Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini have been voted in to UEFA's team of the year by fans.

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%.

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.

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.
