Euro2020: Vote for your favourite European player of the 21st Century

Vote for your favourite player

Cristiano Ronaldo has been voted as your favourite European player of the 21st Century?

With the delayed Euro 2020 about to produce its own set of heroes and memories, BBC Sport asked you to think back over the past 21 years to the individuals you have most enjoyed watching.

BBC Sport journalists shortlisted 64 players, who faced off in a knockout competition until you pick the ultimate winner.

To be included on the shortlist, players had to have have played in at least one major tournament in the 21st Century and played at least 100 matches. We also took into account international, European and domestic success - plus individual accolades.

You were able to vote on this page, with the results appearing soon after each round closed, while you could join in the debate in a live text we ran alongside this page from 08:00 BST.

The ties were drawn from a hat and throughout Wednesday, 9 June, you share your memories of the players - and discussed others you thought should have made it - using #myeurofavourite.
