Spanish newspaper Marca today published their European Young Team of the Season and four Premier League stars made the cut.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane leads the line, Everton’s John Stones is at the heart of the defence whilst Arsenal’s Francis Coquelin and Hector Bellerin also make the team after their superb breakthrough seasons.
Interestingly no La Liga players made the team as four Serie A players make the cut, two from the Bundesliga and finally from from Ligue Un.
Many of these players will be strutting their stuff at the U21 European Championship which kicks off next week in Prague.
The Germany U21 side are considered favourites for the competition with England and Portugal considered 2nd and 3rd favourites respectively.
The Marca European Young Team of the Season
Timo Horn; Hector Bellerin, Daniele Rugani, John Stones, Baba Rahman; Mirko Valdifiori, Francis Coquelin; Felipe Anderson, Paulo Dybala, Nabil Fekir; Harry Kane
Before you ask, we have no idea how or why 29 year old Mirko Valdifiori made Marca’s list!?
