The Top Ten

1 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

This guy awesome player. My dream player... Just love Leo messi

Leo is the man to beat rite now, he has more skill than Ronaldo, better ball control than Ronaldo, more productivity and creativeness than Ronaldo, better vision than Ronaldo, more awards than Ronaldo, twice as many assists than Ronaldo, I don't think anyone out there has the guts to say he's not a better person than Ronaldo, not to mention he's two years younger than Ronaldo.


Never the less that he has the best skill in the world, he is a good assist, free kicks and his passes are great, also he broke a lot of records with 72 goals, so he should be the best player of this year, FYI he took it for the past three years while the others hold zero record in this

2 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Italian club Juventus and the Portugal national team.

Cristiano is the better player then Messi because he is taller, stronger, quicker, more skillful, both footed, can take penalties, frees, can use his head and has played in the top leagues in the world La liga and EPL and has broke a lot of records in la liga kicking 100 goals in 92 apps being the fastest and has kicked 13 hat tricks which is amazing and messi has played 9 seasons in la liga and has kicked 200 plus goals but ronaldo 3 seasons and 136 Messi is only good because of gun midfielders.

Best player of the world
He is no. one...
Messi is at the last

We can't compare heaven and hell guys christiano Ronaldo has proved to the world that he is the best messi will never come even to him so guys its high time for messi to go and find out if barcelona is the only place he can play from... Big up ronaldo you the king of soccer in this generation entertaining and full of magic love hassan forever till we die...?!

Ronaldo has amazing foot skills and is an amazing player! He is the best player in my eyes!

3 Xavier Hernández

He is the best way can't he be number 1 or at least number 2 he is so good

He is the best striker I have ever watched. If there was no such thing as Messi and Ronaldo than Hernandez will be the number 1 and most popular soccer player.

Real machine guy you can ask anyone from Spain #master mind enufsaid#

Hernadez is the best striker in the world by along long distance he would skin messi or ranaldo any day.

4 Neymar Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team. more.

Who the hell puts all these arabs on the list, is it hacked or something. Why doesn't everyone vote for a great, a true great like Neymar. His skills are unreal, better than Ronaldo's and Messi's. He is number 1.

A brilliant player with out of this world pace! He never stops running and has lethal shots.

Neymar scored some of the most beautiful goals of the year. He has an arsenal of amazing moves and dribles. He can initiate a drible and change it in the middle of the execution.

He is a skillfully player and deserves to be captain forever

6 Wayne Rooney Wayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

He is a team player, he always helps the defense, midfield and attack and also scores a lot for his team and that is what makes him better than Messi, Ronaldo and others

Rooney is an amazing striker and has great potential. People say that he is very overrated but they are just jealous that he plays on the greatest team ever, Manchester United!

I love how this guy plays, every touch, every run and every pass is purposeful and direct. He never wastes them either, and he is one of the best around players around

Wayne rooney is okay but Messi and c Ronaldo are better

8 Ricardo "Kaka" Izecson

KAKA was the best for two years and still should be, but was injured a couple of times which really hindered his skills. All of the top five should be under KAKA was the best at an early age and is still on of the best if not the best, and is paid one of the highest salaries.

Kaka is always better. His football was once indispensable in the football world. Unfortunately he is now form out. It is because of the carelessness and the transfer to the real madrid. But it is sure that KAKA will return back. WE ARE WITH YOU KAKA... COME BACK...

17 Arjen Robben Arjen Robben is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for German club Bayern Munich and is the captain of the Netherlands national team.

He scored 2 goals against Spain in 2014 World Cup. He should be the captain of Netherlands. In Netherlands VS Argentina, all the other players were bad penalty shooters from Netherlands. Arjen Robben scored and another Netherlands scored. Wesley SneiJder is not that bad. Arjen Robben should up in Top 5. He went to World Cup 2006 and scored goals. He went to World Cup 2010 and scored goals. Every world cup he went to he scored goals.

I dislike Robben because for all his skill, he is a diver and a bad sport. He basically booted Mexico from the world cup with a pathetic flop in the penalty box

He is good and plays well
