Kane, De Gea snubbed in 2017 UEFA Team of the Year

Kane, De Gea snubbed in 2017 UEFA Team of the Year

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

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

De Gea was one of Manchester United's most important players as they claimed two trophies in 2017, including the Europa League.

Both Buffon and Chiellini have been included, as has former Bianconeri full-back Dani Alves, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Ligue 1's sole representative is PSG's Dani Alves, who returns to the team having received 341,000 votes.

The country that cast the most votes for the team was India, with around 8 percent of the total votes, followed by Poland and Turkey with around 5 percent each.

The UEFA team of the year is voted for by fans on the governing body's official website, and this year two Premier League stars have made the cut.

The pair are also the first ever Belgians to make the UEFA team.
