Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez make FIFA Team of the Year but there are no places for players from the Premier League


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.
