Who is the best football player in the world? There will never be a consensus on the solution, and there will never be a final decision.
Of course, we figured it would be a great idea to attempt to create a list of the world’s top football players.
While Messi and Ronaldo have dominated for the better part of two decades, their reign is being threatened by a new crop of superstars with lofty ambitions to reach the top.
Our selection is based on a number of things. However, we have taken into consideration short-term results, although in many instances the 2021/22 season has been disregarded in order to avoid the dumping of players who have had a lengthy history of exceptional achievements.
Our criterion for the list includes trophies, league strength, raw stats, and unquantifiable magic, among other factors that we know you’re going to disagree with.
Ruben Dias, the Virgil van Dijk of the world, Bruno Fernandes, and Haaland are all missing from our top 10 because we want to show you how strong the top 10 really is.
10. Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd)
Ronaldo has fallen from the top two places he held for nearly a decade to a much lower position now.
Despite the fact that he’s towards the end of his career, it’s reasonable to say he’s still a potent weapon for Manchester United.
It’s no secret that Ronaldo is one of the finest players in the world when it comes to preserving his composure and scoring crucial goals with only seconds left on the clock.
9. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
It’s impossible to draw a straight comparison between defenders, midfielders and strikers, but in many respects, Alexander-strength Arnold’s is that he works in each of those domains.
With his turbo-charged ability to cut down the line and produce outstanding crosses on command, he seldom gets caught at the back. He also understands when to drift back & forth in midfield in or out of possession.
Alexander-Arnold is the finest full-back in the game, but much of Liverpool’s success in recent years flows from his consistent impact on matches. What’s the most exciting part? He’s just 23 years old.
8. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
With 26 goals in 11 games this season, the Frenchman has probably been in the form of his life in 2022. Benzema is a complete center-forward with no obvious flaws who works hard for the team and moves incredibly effectively without the ball.
He prefers delicate finishes over forceful ones. He has emerged as a leader for Real Madrid in recent years, playing with confidence and charisma.
7. Harry Kane (Tottenham)
Even though Harry Kane hasn’t had the best season so far in 2021/22, he is still one of the best strikers in the world and deserves to be at the top of the list of world talents.
Every time Kane has played more than 30 Premier League games for Tottenham in a season, he score more than 20 goals everytime. Even though he was hurt a lot during the other campaigns, he still scored a lot of goals.
The England talisman isn’t just a bunch of numbers, though. He is different from almost every other striker in the world because of his range of passing, technique, vision, and ability to make plays. He has so much talent that he should have trophies in his locker.
6. Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain)
Neymar is one of the best players in the world, and he plays for the club Paris Saint-Germain in the Ligue 1 right now. Neymar has scored 64 goals in 103 games for his country, which is just one less than Pelé.
He was the player who scored the most goals at the 2011 South American Youth Championship, which his team won. He has won a lot of well-known and respected awards.
He is one of the most powerful people in the world and the fourth most well-known athlete in the world. After moving to PSG, he makes a lot of money and is now the third highest-paid athlete in the world.
5. Kylian Mbappe (PSG)
Four of the top five players are over 30, paving the stage for the Frenchman to continue dominating the game in the years to come. He’s one of the fastest football players in the world.
At his early age, he has already 88 goals in 100 PSG league matches and 24 goals in 53 France national squad appearances to his credit.
There is nothing you can do but sit and beg for help when Mbappe is running. Close control and finishing prowess make him a one-of-a-kind player.
4. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
Football snobs might think that Salah’s direct running is simple, but there’s no denying that it works. Few players of all time are better at catching the ball wide and continuing to drive it quickly across or into the box.
He is the city’s lucky charm, its symbol, and its Egyptian king. Even though he became a star later in his career than many other big names, he will be remembered as one of the best players in Premier League history.
3. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City)
De Bruyne could be the best football player in the world right today.
He is the best player in Premier League history at crossing the ball, and he has made some of the most crazy passes you’ll ever see. He could not only create a goal, but he can as well grab nets off their posts.
All of this is great, but what really sets De Bruyne apart from other players like him is his surprising speed and strength. The Belgian is stronger than you might think, and when he’s going full speed, he moves the ball quickly. He has everything.
2. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
Footballer from Poland plays for Bayern Munich and leads the national squad as a player-coach. For his location, skill, and finishing, he has widespread adoration among his peers.
They won the Polish Player of the Year award an unprecedented eight times, cementing their status as one of the top attackers in the world. He was honoured with the IFFHS World’s Best Top Goal Scorer Award in 2022 for his outstanding performance in the sport. His absence from the list of the greatest footballers of all time is a tremendous disappointment to us all. But Lewandowski won UEFA and FIFA Men’s Player of the Year this year.
1. Lionel Messi (PSG)
There is no doubt that Ronaldo, Messi, and Diego Maradona will be among the top three greatest football players of all time, but while Ronaldo’s role has been slightly diminished, we’re still watching the full-fat version of Messi, despite his inconsistent form.
After finally winning a trophy for Argentina. His impact must never be questioned, and his skill must never be underestimated.
If he doesn’t turn it on before the end of the season, he may slide down the list, but if there’s only one player in the world you’d want on your football team, Leo is the only one you’d mention.
