The 22-year-old Wales international, who helped Spurs reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, was the only Barclays Premier League representative in the XI.

Five players from European champions Barcelona - Dani Alves, Gerard Pique, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi - made the line-up along with Real Madrid trio Iker Casillas, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bayern Munich's Holland forward Arjen Robben and AC Milan's Brazil centre-back Thiago Silva completed the team, chosen by 380,000 uefa.com users, with Barca coach Pep Guardiola selected on the bench.
