Now that Europe's long qualifying campaign for the 2016 European Championship has come to a conclusion, UEFA has named their Best XI and awards for the campaign. As one would expect, Bayern Munich is represented on the list.

Robert Lewandowski was named the best player in qualifying after tying the record for goals scored. The Poland international has been on fire during the first half of the season, banging in goals for club and country alike. Lewandowski tied the European Championship Qualifying goal scoring record with 13 goals. He equaled the record set by Northern Ireland's David Healy in qualification for Euro 2008. The only difference is that Lewandowski did it in two fewer games.

Three Bayern Munich players were named the the Best XI. Lewandowski was joined by Germany's Thomas Müller and Austria's David Alaba. All three, of course, have aided their countries in qualifying for France 2016.
