European football's governing body announced its annual Team of the Year on Thursday, after nearly 8.8 million votes were cast by users on UEFA's official website.

European champions Real Madrid have five players in the XI, while Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard are the sole Premier League representatives.

Many are also questioning how Harry Kane was omitted from the selection, with the 24-year old having scored 56 goals for club and country last year - more than any other player.

As is the norm, Real Madrid dominate the side - with Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Cristiano Ronaldo all included.

The total number of 8,779,639 votes for the 2017 UEFA Fans' Team of the Year is a record, with 798,149 unique users taking part.
