DE GEA NAMED IN FIFA TEAM OF THE YEAR FOR 2017

By

In recognition of his phenomenal performances for Manchester United and Spain, David De Gea has been named in the inaugural EA SPORTS FIFA Team of the Year.

The 27-year-old was among 55 players who were originally shortlisted for inclusion by EA SPORTS based on their real-life performances throughout 2017.

The starting XI was then voted for by a select list of athletes, media and members of the EA SPORTS FIFA community, who were all asked to create a team that consisted of a goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards. These were later shared on Twitter using the hashtag #TOTYVote.

De Gea’s inclusion in the EA SPORTS FIFA Team of the Year has arrived after he was recently included on the 30-man shortlist for the 2017 Ballon D’Or, which was won by United legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

Congratulations to David!

Check out the team in full: David De Gea (Manchester United); Marcelo (Real Madrid), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Leonardo Bonucci (AC Milan), Dani Alves (Paris Saint-Germain); N’Golo Kante (Chelsea), Luka Modric (Real Madrid), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City); Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Lionel Messi (Barcelona).
