The EURO2020 Team of the Tournament features five Italian players and three English players

The Team of the Tournament for EURO2020 was announced on Tuesday following the conclusion of the championship on Sunday at Wembley which saw Italy crowned champions after defeating England on penalties. 

The 11-man team which was selected by UEFA's technical observer team was made up of 16 former players and former or current coaches, including former England boss Fabio Capello and West Ham manager David Moyes.

The lineup sees five players selected from the winners Italy, while runners-up England have got three players. Quarter-finalists Spain and Belgium both have one player each while surprise packages Denmark, who made it to the semi-finals make up the last spot. 

The list in full:

Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)
Defenders: Kyle Walker (England|), Leonardo Bonucci (Italy), Harry Maguire (England), Leonardo Spinazzola (Italy)
Midfielders: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Denmark), Jorginho (Italy), Pedri (Spain)
Forwards: Federico Chiesa (Italy), Romelu Lukaku (Belgium), Raheem Sterling (England)

With the likes of tournament top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo as well as Patrik Schick, who scored the Goal of the Tournament, both left out, do you agree with the official team?  Who would you replace or add?
