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.

He is best player in the world of all time, He is best player in the planet of all time, He is best player in the milky way galaxy of all time and now He is best player in the solar system of all time. I know that Ronaldo is tough competitive for Messi but you can't see his goals record his best dribbling skills no one plays like him Lionel Messi is pure play natural and Ronaldo artificial and cheated skills from Ronaldo Jr of Brazil. So, no one can says Ronaldo is better if you can say give reason behind it. Messi is getting in his form now in 2017. Ronaldo is liked by girls by his face not when he is playing that's why Ronaldo is in top

In Galaxy no one know anything about all of galaxy Maybe there is Aliens - LordOmar

Ronaldo has won more this year but Messi has topped the charts so far and is demonstrating why he's the best through goals, assists and fantastic play.

Messi is the best player either won the match or not nobody can play like him he is the best player on the planet goal is not only matter how many pass and kicks skill should have to count not like ronaldo waiting for ball to make goal Messi is best for everything God bleeds you Messi!

No comments, just Leo Messi..

2 Neymar 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. ...read more.

Neymar has lead Brazil to the Rio Olympic final and ended up winning gold! He was the first Brazilian to ever lead Brazil to the final and then win gold! Neymar has scored the quickest Olympic goal in history in just 14 seconds after the game started. Neymar scored an amazing free-kick against Germany in the Finals! If it wasn't for Neymar's free-kick, they would've got silver. Maybe Neymar preformed better in Rio than Messi in Barca, but maybe. But he deserves to get 2nd or 1st. Messi deserves 2nd or 1st too. Ronaldo deserves 6th, Neymar, Zlatan, Suarez, Messi, and Bale were better.

Come on lets face it, Ronaldo is getting old and so is Messi. Whose left? Neymar

Neymar has been the best winger in Europe, his rating was an 8.66.

Come on man messi and ronaldo are no match for neymar
messi and ronaldo are both old and has little skills
their time are over

3 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.

4 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.

I like gareth bale because he is the one have any strategy to goal and help the friend

Apart from being a great all round footballer with an amazing turn of pace... after almost every goal he scores, what does he do? He turns & points to the player who assisted his goal. He rarely rushes to the cameramen. The gentleman of football.

Bale is fast but he is good and he is better than neymar but neymar love pass to messi and he is always under messi's shadows that why but bale is getting red cards that why but his better than neymar, Suarez and ronaldo

He should be number 1 he is the fastest futbol player

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

I think cristiano ronaldo is better than messi he should be the first

Come on we all know that messi is better but at least ronaldo deserves to be at 2

Cristiano ronaldo is the best football player in the world so he should be on the first position

Come on...
Cr7 in no. 5?!

He is probably the one of the best strikers in the world

Your kidden he's not that good he should at least be no.12/11

HK has scored just about every kind of goal in every type of scenario. He's not the ball-handler as others on this list; but, he puts balls in the goal better than anyone else over the last two years. Teams have to account for him as much as anyone else.

Slow striker but deadly

Horrible placement should be 3!

12 Alexis Sánchez

He's good player, but he's also good for his team

Really quick bursts help him score awesome goals and many of them. Just achieved the record of most international goals by a Chilean. Bale hasn't even been that good recently and most of Harry Kane's goals were luck

The best player for arsenal nowadays

My favorite soccer player is Alexis Sanchez because he has great skills and he is really good at left wing
