UEFA Champions League Team Of The Tournament Is Revealed
By Luke Delaney Updated

The UEFA Champions League Team of the Tournament has been released, with players from five different sides making up the team.

Thibaut Courtois' magnificent performance in the final has been rewarded with a place in the team. There's three Liverpool players in the back four with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Andrew Robertson joined by Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger who is joining up with champions Real Madrid at the end of his contract.

Luka Modric, Kevin De Bruyne and Fabinho are the three midfielders selected with Kylian Mbappe joining the Los Blancos duo of Karim Benzema and winning goalscorer Vinicius Jr up front.

Here is the full team below.

One player who probably won't be happy to miss out is Robert Lewandowski who scored 13 goals in Bayern's 10 Champions League games this season and with Mbappe included after scoring 6 times, that is one position that is up for debate.

Other awards up for grabs

Karim Benzema has been named UCL Player of the Year after scoring 15 goals during his side's route to their 14th European Cup.

Vinicius Jr has been named UCL Young Player of the Year after scoring 4 goals and assisting another 6 during the campaign.

Another award that was up for grabs was Goal of the Tournament. There has been some fantastic strikes during the Champions League campaign.

From Thiago Alcantara's magnificent strike against Porto to Sebastian Thill's late rocket for FC Sheriff to beat eventual champions Real Madrid, there has been a whole host of potential winners for the award.

But it was that man Karim Benzema who picked up another award, this time for his header against Chelsea during the quarterfinal.
