The Spanish League La Liga holds pride in the fact that it dominates the list of UEFA Team of the Year 2016 nominations. About nineteen nominees out of forty belong to this Spanish League while the remaining twenty-one nominees have their roots in English Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Premier Division.

The nominations of this year have been specifically a happy event for the Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio who has been chosen as a nominee for the first time in his career. The reason for such a break might be his victory at Euro 2016 that brought laurels to the Portuguese football team.

As expected, La Liga football stars like Lionel Messi, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann have made it to the list.
