Man Utd midfielder, Paul Pogba came close to be in the team but eventually missed out to Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos.
In fact, he missed out by the smallest margin ever. There were three midfield berths and Paul Pogba nearly made it in. Toni Kroos beat him by two votes.
The last two English-based players to make the team having spent the entire year at a Premier League club were the Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic in 2011.
