Three of the superstars who have been voted into UEFA’s Men’s Team of the Year by fans are Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar, with Virgil van Dijk, also included despite missing a chunk of 2020 through injury.

Fans had to cast their ballots between 30 November and 6 January, and the cut was made by a host of predictable names, while the winners of the Champions League dominate Bayern Munich.

In the squad, there are five players from the treble-winning Bayern 2019-20, including Robert Lewandowski, recipient of the Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year title, and Thiago Alcantara, who has joined Liverpool since then.

Van Dijk is the other Reds player in the team, even though the Dutch center-back only played five Premier League games this season due to a significant knee injury.

However, he inspired Liverpool to their first league title since 1990 earlier in the year.

After guiding Juventus to another Scudetto, Ronaldo was named in the side for the 15th time.

In what was a largely difficult year for the Blaugrana and their captain, Messi won his 12th inclusion despite failing to enable Barcelona to achieve LaLiga success.

UEFA also announced the women’s team’s final pick, with six players from the Lyon Women’s Champions League-winning team in the side.
