Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has made the Champions League team of the quarterfinals despite his team’s elimination at the hands of Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam.

According to the list compiled by popular media platform Goal, the former Manchester United player was named alongside ten others.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored in both legs against Ajax Amsterdam but it was not enough to lead his Juventus side past a youthful side.

The 34-year-old returned from a hamstring injury to score for Juventus in a 1-1 draw at Ajax Amsterdam before finding the back of the net for the only goal for Juventus in the shocking 2-1 loss to the Dutch team.

Ajax saw off Manchester United 3-2 on aggregate.

Juventus splashed a lot of money on Ronaldo last summer in their quest to win the Champions League title for the first time since the 1996 final when they saw off Ajax.

The Italians might need to wait for another year to realise their target of winning Europe’s premier club competition.

Apart from Ronaldo, other recipients on the list include Roberto Firmino and Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool), Donny Van Der Beek, Daley Blind and Matthijs De Ligt (Ajax Amsterdam), Lionel Messi, Marc Andre Ter Stegen and Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min (Tottenham Hotspur).
