2 July 2012 14:01

Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta has been named the best player of Euro 2012, UEFA announced on Monday.

The 28-year-old started in each of Spain's six matches at the Euros and playing a leading role in his team's campaign in Poland and Ukraine - which culminated with a 4-0 thrashing of Italy in the final.

Iniesta, who was chosen by the 11-man technical team of UEFA, grabbed one assist in the 551 minute he was on the pitch at the Euros.

He is also part of UEFA's 23-man Team of the Tournament, which contains 10 players from Spain and four from Italy.

Golden Boot winner Fernando Torres did not make the cut, most likely because he played only 189 minutes, with Mario Balotelli, Cesc Fabregas, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Silva the five attackers chosen.

Team of the Tournament: Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Italy), Iker Casillas (Spain), Manuel Neuer (Germany)

Defenders: Gerard Pique (Spain), Fabio Coentrao (Portugal), Philipp Lahm (Germany), Pepe (Portugal), Sergio Ramos (Spain), Jordi Alba (Spain)

Midfielders: Daniele De Rossi (Italy), Steven Gerrard (England), Xavi (Spain), Andres Iniesta (Spain), Sami Khedira (Germany), Sergio Busquets (Spain), Mesut Oezil (Germany), Andrea Pirlo (Italy), Xabi Alonso (Spain)

Attackers: Mario Balotelli (Italy), Cesc Fabregas (Spain), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden), David Silva (Spain).
