By Mike Parrott

Amazon have revealed their UEFA Champions League all-time starting XI ahead of the Champions League final between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich - and only one English player has made the team.

With Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain booking their slots into the UEFA Champions League final on August 23rd, some of these players will enter the history books of the prestigious competition.

With greats such as Neymar, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and Kylian Mbappe all set to be involved, Amazon have revealed their all-time Champions League starting XI, with some notable inclusions.

As you can see, the XI is dominated by the Barcelona team led by Pep Guardiola from 2008 to 2012.

With Alves, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, and Messi all part of the team who went on to win two Champions League titles under Guardiola, as well as one more title under Luis Enrique in 2015.

Paul Scholes is the only English player to make the list. Scholes won two Champions League titles with Manchester United in 1999 and 2008 while being instrumental in United making another two finals and many other semi-finals appearances.

The most controversial choices are arguably Paolo Maldini and the formation decision between Ronaldo and Raul. Even though the latter could easily be rectified by swapping Ronaldo to the left and Raul at striker, Maldini isn't the most decorated full-back in the Champions League.

With Phillip Lahm making the UEFA Team of the Year five times, tied with Alves for the most at full-back.

Ronaldo has the most appearances in the UEFA Team of the Year with a record 14 appearances, three ahead of Messi. The Portuguese forward has won the Champions League five times and is the top scorer in the history of the competition with 129 goals.
