FIFA named their team of the year during a ceremony in Zurich on Monday night in which a host of superstars from La Liga featured in the heavyweight line-up.

Five Barcelona players and five Real Madrid stars have been selected in FIFA‘s Team of the Year, with the Premier League totally snubbed.

The world governing body revealed their stand-out ‘FIFPro World XI’ at a glittering awards ceremony in Zurich on Monday, and Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were unsurprisingly chosen to lead the line.

But not a single player currently plying his trade in England was deemed worthy of a place in the star-studded line-up. In fact, only one man not employed by Barca or Real in 2016 was picked –Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
