The annual UEFA Team of the Year was launched in 2001, and is decided by multiple polls on UEFA's official website.
Having recently announced the 50 nominees for the 2018 UEFA Team of the Year, the European football body has now released the official Team of the 21st century consisting of players who have been selected the most for the annual best XI.
The player with more selections than any other is Ronaldo, who has appeared a record-breaking 12 times – three more than anyone else. The 33-year-old is also the player with the most consecutive appearances, having been selected for the past 11 successive editions.
He is followed by longstanding rival Lionel Messi, who has made the UEFA Team of the Year nine times, including the past four years in a row.
Sergio Ramos has made the best XI seven times, while Iker Casillas, Carles Puyol and Andres Iniesta were included in six different years.
Philipp Lahm, Gerard Pique, Xavi Hernandez and Thierry Henry each made the UEFA Team of the Year on five occasions, while Steven Gerrard was one of seven players who were selected three times.
However, his overall seven nominations gave him the edge over Kaka (five nominations), Ronaldinho (four), Toni Kroos (four), Pavel Nedved (three) and Zinedine Zidane (three).
