World champion Jérôme Boateng has been voted into the UEFA.com Team of the Year by users of the European governing body’s website. The centre-back is the only Bayern pro to make the XI. The 28-year-old and former FCB player Toni Kroos are the two Germans to feature in the selection. It is the first time Boateng has made the final XI after a third nomination on the bounce. The defensive stalwart misses the Doha training camp after undergoing a shoulder operation in December.
