Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappé has been named in the UEFA.com Team of the Year, joining the likes of Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo and Ballon d'Or winner Luka Modric in the illustrious line-up.

The 20-year-old joined former LOSC Lille man Eden Hazard, ex-SM Caen midfielder N'Golo Kanté and fellow France international Raphaël Varane in the star-studded XI, which was selected by users of UEFA's official website.

Mbappé's inclusion is no surprise. The former AS Monaco prodigy helped PSG complete a domestic quadruple in his first Ligue 1 Conforama season in the capital before then playing a major role in his nation's FIFA World Cup win last summer.

Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona)
