Perhaps the biggest debate when it comes to Team of the Season votes is who won the majority when it comes to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

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.

But there was no place for Tottenham's Kane, who was Europe's top scorer for club and country in 2017 with 56 goals, or PSG's Neymar, the world's most expensive player at £200m.

39-year-old Gianluigi Buffon extends his record as the oldest ever player to make the team. Players from the Spanish league dominated the team with five Champions League winning Real Madrid players finding mentions.

Instead, Eden Hazard of Chelsea is 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.

Keylor Navas, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Casemiro, Isco, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo deservedly make the list after an incredible campaign in the Champions League.

Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon was selected as the team's goalkeeper, with his teammate Giorgio Chiellini in the center-back spot.

Ligue 1's sole representative is Dani Alves of PSG.
