Top five football players in the world
- Updated: August 9, 2016
Football is a growing sport in Pakistan and we more and more people going out at their favourite cafes to watch their favourite games among their friends. But to people who are new to the sport don’t know much about the sport. I will start a series of introduction to football and weekly put up at least one blog where you can learn something about the sport. I don’t want to go into the basic technical aspects but will share my opinions the facts that are currently circulating.
First, let’s start with the top five players because you will see a lot of arguments and debates going on about the best players in the world. The list I am sharing is by Fifa and it’s the top 5 players in the world in 2015.
The five-time and the current Ballon’ dOr winner is officially the best player in the world despite falling short of the international glory with Argentina after losing a consecutive 2nd final to Chile in the year 2015 and 2016 for Copa America and Copa America Centario (Celebratory tournament for the 100 year anniversary of the Copa America tournament). He had a great tournament scored some amazing goals but his agony continues as he missed a penalty at the final that went to penalty shootout.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the easiest choice for whom to bet that would win the Ballon’ dOr award 2016. He had huge success in winning the UEFA champions league with his club Real Madrid and UEFA Euro cup with his international team Portugal. He influential in both the tournaments and you could say that he had his best season in his life and too at the age of 31 where players start to fade away.
His only highlight was winning the double with Barcelona where he won the Spanish League and the Spanish Cup. He was great in both especially when Lionel Messi his club-mate was injured at the start of the season.
He is my favourite player at the moment. When he joined Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014 I was cynical of his antics and thought that he will not be a good fit in Barcelona. But he grew on me, Although this list if of the top five players but he is surely the best centre forward in the world right now. He is extremely talented and very hardworking when it comes to work ethic. I hope that he wins the best player of the year in near future because he thoroughly deserves it.
The Bayern Munich marksmen are the certainly up there with the above players but his only criticism comes because of the quality of the league he plays in. Everyone feels that he is not challenged enough to be properly judged. There were speculations that he is going to join some big club either Real Madrid or Manchester United, but these speculations were put to bed when Bayern Munich refused to sell their most prized asset.
