Spain's La Liga nearly pulled off a clean sweep in the Dream Team which was today published online by 'France Football'. The Team of the Year boasts no less than seven players plying their trade in the top-flight of Spanish football. Rather unsurprisingly, there are places for Ballon d'Or finalists Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.
Despite the non-inclusion of Uruguyuan striker Luis Suárez, Barcelona are still the best represented team, with Dani Alves, and the only Spaniard to make the cut,Andrés Iniesta, both included.
Sevilla's Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, and Atlético Madrid centre-back Diego Godín make up the remainder of the La Liga contingency. The starting XI is completed by Italy and Juventus pair Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini, Bayern Munich's Austrian left-back David Alaba and Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne (who starred for both Wolfsburg and Manchester City during 2015).
