The team is voted for by fans with nearly nine million votes cast and lines up in a 4-4-2 formation.

Kane was also the top goalscorer for the calendar year, but missed out to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

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.

Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos was chosen as the second center-back, along with his left-back teammate Marcelo.

Voted by the fans, the usual suspects of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi make the cut but to the surprise of many, only two Premier League players feature.

The initial shortlist of 50 players were nominated by the UEFA.com editorial team based on performances for a European club or national team in UEFA competitions during the 2017 calendar year.

Los Blancos have the most players, five, in UEFA's Team of the Year, followed by Juventus with two of their stars, while Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea have one representative each.
