Best Soccer Players of 2012-2013

The Top TenXW

1Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo is better faster stronger more versatile in his scoring messi has xavi and iniesta ronaldo doesn't and still makes people speechless and has scored in all vital games were was messi vs madrid vs chelsea

Cristiano ronaldo is the best end of story screw messi cristiano ronaldo has broke records all over the world.

Messi has been impressive and so has Ronaldo.. To be honest, I think it'd be quite unfair if Ronaldo doesn't win this time. "He can be a one man team messi can't because if xavi or iniesta are not playing he is bad". Ronaldo individuals records are outstanding, despite the fact that Messi can be the top scorer in la liga this time.. Remember, Ronaldo was the top scorer the previous season of la liga.. Yet he didn't win as real madrid wasn't champion. So, as real win will la liga this season, Ronaldo has the chance of getting much closer to the Ballon D'or title. It's due to him and his personal efforts that real madrid will win back the la liga title again. Yet, the decisions are only in the hand of the FIFA. All remains to be seen now.

Ronaldo is the worst player ever

2Lionel Messi

He holds the ball with amazing dribbling skills and with blistering pace, can be nightmare for any defensive lineup or for any player

He has glue on his boots, For me he is the best football player after ronaldhino gone from Fc Barcelona...

Unfortunately, Cristiano Ronaldo was born in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Messi rules the soccer world whether CR7 and his fans like it or not.

I love you so much for scoring goals in your eyes

Neymar brings art back to soccer - which is why Brazilians got their fame in the first place.

Neymar is like the best new kid in town. It's a joke for Rooney to be in the top 3 in this list that's Neymar's spot. Messi and Ronaldo are beast though. Still though- Neymar is the perfect example of why Brazil are such a famous football team- like that other guy said.

He is the best futball player I have ever seen my really long 37 year life I am voting for him because I think he should in the top three of being the best futball player

Now he is the number 2

4Robin van Persie

Best striker around, one of the best finisher, a goalscorer by nature and a great future, he should stay at arsenal

He Experienced bad injuries at the past, But he came back at the premier league to took 3 individual Trophies! Player Of the Year, Golden Boot, PFA Players Writers!

Robin van Persie is amazing for his age and having 2 kids, he has still pulled through to being the 3rd est player in the world. Of course Ronaldo and Messi top that list. Stay strong, cute and an AMAZING striker big guy!

The best footballer in the world

5Andres Iniesta

3rd best in his team right now! But if he keeps at it, I think he can at least be top 10 5 in the world.

He is the best. His fast mind tackles, passes, scoring abilities made him so... THE BEST. AS he was the hero of the victory of Spain in world cup HE got his name a bright future. ANDRES INIESTA.

He is Europe's 2012 best player, he has everything a team needs to win, he doesn't depend on team mates, just like messi, he has glue on his boots.

#7th that's stupid more like #999

6Wayne Rooney

Rooney's form is awesome currently, he keeps on scoring and has good skills to keep Manchester United winning.

He's an unbelievable player, and scores in big games

He works harder then any other soccer play I've seen! And has the urge to go on and try to win every game! He also can play in any position. He's very strong, skillful, can score from distance with a powerful shot, very good header of the ball, can take free kicks and corners, can put in good tackles and can run the pitch all day long if you asked him!

Rooney was a complete player this season. He should be in the top 5

V344 Comments
7Zlatan Ibrahimović

Zlatan Ibrahimovic strong good technical and power shoot

Ibra deserves to be in the top ten. He is a very good Swedish player

Zlatan ibrahimovic should be one of the top 5 players and no in the top ten players

He has got everything

8Gareth Bale

I think Gareth bale should be in the top three after winning player of the year, better than Rooney and Neymar by miles. In my opinion he makes spurs one of the best teams in Britain annd if he did move club to a top team like man you he would be even better than he already is and he is welsh

One of the best footballers around in my opinion he's second best in the premire league just before rvp. Bale has everything needed to become one of the best footballers around. At the least I would expect him at 15th in the world!

Best player in barclays premier league I support tottenham he is a assect for tottenham to have him he is extremenly fast I would be over the moon if I was that good at that age and holtbye is very good in his starting ages at tottenham I can see that bond with Gareth Bale and Holtbye these two players are awesome give them praise vote for these two star quality players they are upon the best keep the skill these players have skills

Gareth Bale best winger in the world

9Xavi Hernandez

I wouldn't agree more. Where sheer talent exists credit much go. These are some of the finest talents that we have of the day. Maybe of all times after the talents of 1998 to 2002 era. Messi is born for soccer and to live it. No doubt he is numero uno in the world at the moment with his prowess in ball handling and manipulation abilities not to mention his breathe taking pace and the phenomenal ability to convert goals out of nothing. Cristiano Ronaldo redefines soccer with his mesmerizing pace and dribbling abilities coupled together with the tenacity to score goals from any range. Xavi on the other hand simply owns the middle park once his game unveils, his terrific ball possession capabilities and the ability to pass accurately and make the ball move is refreshing to watch. The rest of the list is obviously undebatable.

Xavi or Iniesta should be 3rd..

Is a good player I like how he play

He should be rank #22 not #3

10Mesut Özil

Had the highest assists in the la liga for 2011/2012, is unnoticed but plays well very efficient and consistent. Has been nominated fo Ballon d'or as well

Heart of real madrid team as well as heart of german national team!

In 4 years time mesut ozil is going to be the best player in the world

He is a great passer, and game changer

The Contenders

11Franck Ribéry

Amazing goal scorer who when is healthy can be virtually unstoppable from making plays, scoring goals and finding every open player on the field to pass to

As the commentator said during the Basel vs Bayer game. Ribery in form is too fast too strong too clever... Simply unplayable

Feet like hands! Smart and the best play maker in the world. One of the few players in the world who seems to get better with age.

Should be number one

12Fernando Torres

Fernando torres is the best player of all times... He's so perfect at football and so good-looking too, so sexy, so cute... Torres and messi are the best... You should be at top ten torres, no those who are in this list... Viva torres... Your fans love you very much, continue as you are... Always the best..

Fernando torres is the best of all times... So good at football, so cute, so sexy, so good-looking... He and messi are the best... You should be the second at the list... Viva torres, always will be the best... Spain will win just with torres... Love you...

Fernando Torres is the best player and whan I say best I mean BEST EVER TO LIVE YA READ! He was born to play soccer Fernando Torres has got glue on his boots when ever he gets the ball there is no going back the goalkeeper should either move or let him score as he will score against worlds number 1 goalkeeper Ikka Casillas and still not even Manuel Neur stands a chance against this striker known as Fernando Torres. He plays for Chelsea and spain. He is way better looking than any other soccer player I know of even Mr I'm the pretiest there is Cristiano Ronaldo.

What? He sucks so bad

Should be in the top ten when it comes to skill passing shooting the only thing that separates him from neymar or messi or ronaldo is speed he still has all the moves

You guys are crazy where he should be is at least the top 15

Most technically savvy player in the world. He needs to get back to football in order to re-establish his dominance in the game. In his hayday, he was simply the best I have ever seen. He has all the skills to be the best player in the world, but he has to get his mojo back!

He is the best because he helped Messi become the best soccer player

14Radamel Falcao Garcia

How is he not 3rd he is a complete masterclass and is by far the best out and out striker in the world seeming messi's a false 9

Well This Falcao deserves at least the third please behind the two stars who's name we don't have to remember... Falcao was very important in the winning cup final of the European League Cup... He was also the man of the match in the Super Cup against Chelsea and I think most of the biggest clubs (like Chelsea) are dreaming to have him in their team... He is also important of the third please Colombia has at this moment to place themselves for the world championship 2014... So I would ask all the people who doesn't know this guy much... Follow his movements, he will become a star one day!

"El Tigre" is one of the best strikers in the world today. The Colombian Superstar even surpassed Jurgen Klinsman's 15 goals when he scored 17 in his UEFA Cup campaign.

Does anything to get the goal.

Kaka has been the centerpiece for Brazil for many years. He was at one time during his younger days considered one of the best in football.

Kaka may not be the best player, but he is one of honest player.
He has the fatherly figure in a game termed as football...

I thank kaka should deserve number one he is a really good player and a I high reckoned he deserves 1

Kaka is my favourite player

16Robert Lewandowski

This guy single handedly DESTROYED Real Madrid in the Champions League Semi Finals in 2013! Nobody has ever scored 4 goals against Real Madrid in one game! He did it with style too

Scored 13 goals in 19 matches for Borussia Dortmund. Will transfer to MU in 2013.

Lewandowski is the best at bicycle kicks

No need to comment just watch his goals and you'll see how great he is

17Luis Suárez

He is very good as a soccer player. He saved liverpool against chelsea. He's incredible!

I'm Josh and I say that Luis Suarez is the best!

Neymar, rooney, hernandez, torres and kaka rated ahead of suarez? What? Who ever created this has no knowledge of football. Neymar is yet unproven, dominating the brazilian league doesn't make you anywhere near the caliber of messi, let alone ronaldo. Rooney works hard, but isn't in the top 10, hernandez is used mainly as a sub, so how can he get the nod over others, such as bale? Torres is useless and a shadow of his former self at chelsea, and kaka, well kaka flopped ever since he turned his back on milan. Watch footballers play, you don't rank them for being good looking, or disciplined, you rank their player style, unlike the fool who published this.

Suarez is the 3 best player in the world not 17

18Arjen Robben

He is a complete winger with a lot of pace, skill, dribble and an amazing finishing ability. Further more he scored one of the most amazing volleys ever.
His left leg shot is awesome!

Arjen Robben is very fast and scored 12 goals. Arjen missed a penalty against Petr Cech in Europa Champions League. He and Franck Ribery make a good partnership.

Arjen Robben is the best right winger in the world 2013 and should be in the top 10.
He has some of the best dribbling and has an unbelievable fast pace. They don't call him the Flying Dutchman for nothing.
Plus he scored the deciding goal in the champions league final in the 89th minute.

You should be the worst

19Didier Drogba

Scored in the UCL Final extending the game and therefore winning Chelsea's first UCL Cup

Didier deserves it, he was the diving force that led Chelsea to win the champions league.

Didier Drogba is the best soccer player in world because he doing great things for chealsea & national team ivory cost.
always he taking his team to top.

He is an awesome player
