39-year-old Gianluigi Buffon extends his record as the oldest ever player to make the team.

Many are also questioning how Harry Kane was omitted from the selection, with the 24-year old having scored 56 goals for club and country last year - more than any other player.

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

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard appeared in 38% of teams, while Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne featured in an impressive 52.2% of teams voted by the fans.
