Football enthusiasts from around the world voted to pick the stellar eleven with 2 players from the Premier League, two from the Serie A and one from the French Ligue 1.

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

Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos was chosen as the second center-back, along with his left-back teammate Marcelo. Players from the Spanish league dominated the team with five Champions League winning Real Madrid players finding mentions. Italian veteran Gianluigi Buffon has been kept between the sticks.

Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City): 52.2%. At 39-years of age, Buffon became the oldest to grace the UEFA team of the year.

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

Hazard is voted as the third member of an attacking trident in a team dominated by Real Madrid stars after Zinedine Zidane's men retained the Champions League and beat Barca to winning LaLiga previous year. The team was selected from a shortlist by users via a voting system.
