The Top Ten

1 Lionel Messi 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.

Messi is truly great. He not only scores but gives assists also suddenly out of nowhere. One second there is no chance of goal and within a flash he finds spaces for the goal.

He is the best player of all time, he is a great scorer. He can make skills that no other soccer can do... HE IS really THE BEST IN THE WORLD!... HE ROCKS!

Is true, Christiano R. is a complete player but there are many complete players, however Messi is gifted and gifted only appear once in a generation.

good

2 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

Pace, dribbling, goal scoring abilities, headers, jumping, assists, free kick expert, penalty expert, body, physical, strong etc... all you could ask for in a striker/winger. Messi has been in la liga pretty much his whole life and Cristiano hasn't. Ronaldo has accomplished a lot of thing during that short period of time he's been at Real Madrid. As of Messi, it has taken him forever.

Hello, Cristiano Ronaldo is the number one player, why do you think that they did a test on him to see why he is so amazing, but they didn't do one on Messi or any other soccer player, obviously Ronaldo is the best player.

Ronaldo is way way way way way way way way way better than Messi FIFA people was stupid or 4 year best to Messi dum dum dum

MESSI IS MEST UP BROS

4 Luis Suarez Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

Should be number 3.

What makes him different from all other players in the list is that he is a leader player, always playing for team and not selfish.

He is so cool that he always puts balls in the net and he is the best striker in the world and deserves that

Currently top scorer and best player in the world.

5 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an English club Manchester United and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

Ahh. Definitely expected him in the top 5. He may not be fast, but he's all about POWER. He's like the LeBron of soccer, no one can really stop his shooting abilities. Much respect for Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez, and Neymar as they hit the top 5 as well.

Excellent player. Helped PSG complete first ever Domestic French Treble..

He is the best. He is the god. HE IS ZLATAN

Should be # 3 in my opinion.

6 Arjen Robben 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 is very fast skillful and has great finishing should be in top five for me he has the potential of being a great soccer player, and he is

So good and one of the best at moves in my opinion. He does great moves and deserves to be one of the best in 2015

He is an amazing player in midfield, striking, winger, he can play in any position! He is always there to create or finish brilliant opportunities! He is one of the reasons that Bayern is the best in the world (other is Neuer)

He is the fastest between Messi and Ronaldo

V 18 Comments
7 Gareth Bale Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

Neymar Messi and Ronaldo all come from countries where football/soccer is popular while bale came from Wales where everyone only cares about rugby so bale has had to overcome that and train harder than anyone to be one of the worlds best

Gareth Bale is one of the fastest soccer players in the world.

Bale is very very fast and he was the best premier league player when he was a tottenham

Fastest football player in the world

8 Eden Hazard Eden Hazard Eden Michael Hazard is a Belgian professional footballer who plays for Chelsea and the Belgium national team.

He will be at the top besides he has the talent to dribble in tight space and open space how amazing

Eden Hazard is a creative player on is own, and presently he is inform now

He is the best player because he has the best dribbling skills and can dribble pass any defender, also he has won player of the year award 2015

Come on... Like no. 8. seriously... This guy deserves to be in the top 5 way ahead of suarez

9 Manuel Neuer Manuel Neuer Manuel Peter Neuer is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Bayern Munich and the Germany national team.

Manuel is completely out of this world. Every time I play with Bayern Munich on my FIFA 16, The apposition doesn't score mare than one goal. He is a champ!

Very quick into action and follows the game to make his great saves. Amazing goalie

Probably my 2nd favorite keeper and is really hard to score against, even the best of players find it hard to score a goal against him.

Best golkeeper

17 Radamel Falcao

Falcao doesn't deserve to be in the top 100 in my opinion this year. And he's 20th. No offense guys but Falcao has barely got any goals, has shown a lack of pace and has wasted Manchester United so much money for 6 months! I like him a lot, and I know he's been remarkable in previous years, but I have to say this. Sorry guys!

Falcao is very skilful and is a good striker but is no were near the sort of pace as Bale, Walcott or Sanchez

How did he get here

He's on there twice

V 5 Comments
18 Diego Costa Diego Costa Diego da Silva Costa, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Chelsea and the Spain national team.

Get him down to the bottom of the list!

Costa has the skills to pay the bills

He is good but angry like suarez

You have anger issues

19 Andres Iniesta Andres Iniesta Andrés Iniesta Luján is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for FC Barcelona and the Spain national team.

What! 68.! Can any of the first 67 players do what Iniesta does with the ball? He is the most skillful player of football history. He is a genius!

Iniesta, should be in top 5 in world oh mi god

Should be in top 5

Should be top 15-10

21 Gianluigi Buffon Gianluigi Buffon Gianluigi "Gigi" Buffon is an Italian professional goalkeeper who plays for and captains both Serie A club Juventus and the Italian national team.

2014 is Neuer and Courtois's year, but 2015 is Buffon and ter Stegen's year.

22 Sergio Agüero Sergio Agüero Sergio Leonel "Kun" Agüero is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Manchester City and the Argentina national team.

Best premiere league player ever

Because he is the striker
of man city

He is so useful he got goals on Barcelona realmadrid bayern Germany Ireland Chelsea and more

25 Philipp Lahm

26 Cesc Fabregas

Greatest player of all time

28 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Arsenal. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world. Özil plays mostly as an attacking midfielder, but can also be deployed as a winger.

The kindest player to the ball. I would like to see him playing for the same team with Andres Iniesta. They are more than footballers, actually artists. Football is nice to watch thanks to such players.

What? He's at 105? He is potentially the best player in the premier league and is the player that has kept Arsenal going strong

Greatest playmaker of all time and top 10 in the world. This list is stupid.

A joy to watch.

Should be about 70 on the list

NEVER HEARD OF HIM

34 Alexis Sanchez Alexis Sanchez Alexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez, known as Alexis Sánchez or simply Alexis, is a Chilean professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Manchester United and the Chilean national team.

Alexis Sanchez should be 4th best soccer player he has good dribbling skills he is a fast runner has always had one of the best kicks and goals and and knows how to control the ball really good I always thought he would of been in the top 4 in the world because he is so amazing works hard in his games. Who ever made him 44th in the world is wrong and he should be 4th no matter what.

Sanchez has outstanding talent and his season for Arsenal was simply phenomenal! He has electric pace great dribbles crazy skills and a deadly pass he should be 9nth in my opinion.

Other than Messi and Ronaldo, Sanchez is the best in the world and in the premier league, He should be in top 10. Really underrated player.

the best

35 Harry Kane Harry Kane Harry Edward Kane is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the England national team.

A true prodigy. A lot can be expected from him in the future. England is in good hand with the likes of kane and sterling

He is a natural finisher he maybe a little low in the charts now but later he will be like neymar or gareth bale

Honestly. Who can say with a straight face that Rafael Falcao has had a better 2015 than Harry Kane

Falcao above the hurricane! SERIOUSLY! what has football come to?! I mean, Messi, Neymar, etc. fair enough. BUT FALCAO!

38 Theo Walcott Theo Walcott Theo James Walcott is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Arsenal and the England national team.

He's one of the best players

His speed is to much

39 Sadio Mane

I can't believe I had to add him.He scored the fastest hatrick in the premier league.

Incredible n fantastic shoots,he deserve to be one of the best we r having right now.

40 Jonathan Walters

Top player the Sunderland player will throw Messi and Ronaldo out of rank 1

Stoke...

41 Loic Remy

He is a brilliant player for west ham and he scores a lot of headers for me he is the best player for west ham

He is great whoever said he is not good you are weird

He is not good

48 Steven James "Steve" Sidwell

No player in history has scored 12000 goals. Sidwell however, after that triple hat trick against Real Madrid, is closing in on that title. He has played for colossal clubs like Stoke City. He guided them to victory in the FA Cup, the premier league, the champions league, and of course the capital one cup. So why has he not even been mentioned. Surely his hair alone is worthy of top spot.

This guy is rubbish shouldn't be on this list

Wait what

49 Miroslav Klose Miroslav Klose Miroslav Josef Klose is a German professional footballer who last played as a striker for Serie A club Lazio.
