The best footballers in the world in 2021
Best Footballers – We rule the world’s top 10 soccer players in 2021.
Who are the best footballers in the world right now? A question that can never be properly answered would hardly even come close to moving an agreement forward, but a question that continues to fill the roofs of pub chats and footballs (well, group chats). And still demand zoom).
A new generation of young superstars is trying their hand at the spotlight, but the old defenders have yet to work.
To set the standard for our list, we’ve selected our top 10 players in the world over the last few years based on personal abilities and accomplishments, due to a brief burst of form after a decade of success or Once overflowing. .
Among those who have not made the top 10 cuts by Eden Hazard – their origins have failed to match their time at Madrid’s Chelsea.
Also included are Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling. Both players have had great days, but in the case of Mane, they lost to a Liverpool teammate, while Sterling has blown hot and cold in recent days.
We go here
10. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
Edging Mane – but just being fair – Liverpool’s goal-sourcing sensation is Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian may not have personally produced the best 12 months of his career in 2020 when it comes to performances, but, in terms of combining the trophy and the team at Liverpool, there is no manager.
Will The advice is how Liverpool play and hopefully Egypt qualifies in 2022, if we look forward to the World Cup again.
For now, the focus is on another Premier League title and Salah has proven the team player capable of delivering it.
9. Neymar (PSG)
The French high-flying is widely regarded as below Brazil’s sense of Neymar, but its ultimate goal of winning the Champions League in Paris has yet to be achieved.
Neymar has been a sensation since he was a teenager, but world superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have never been as number one in the world.
Neymar has seen his rankings drop in recent years, largely due to his ineffective international performance.
Nevertheless, his growing experience has helped his link-up play with fellow forwards and at 28 Neymar is still at the height of his power.
8. Joshua Kimmich (Bayern)
This is proof of how strong the Bundesliga is at the moment, with three of the world’s top 10 footballers competing in Germany. Joshua Kimmich developed in response to Bayern Munich’s midfield, versatile Germany is able to cover the international defense as well as lead the team.
Kimmich’s influence over Bayern Midfield is undisputed and he is one of the first names on the team sheet of Boss Hans Dieter Flick. We should see more 25-year-olds at the Euros this summer, and it would not be surprising if Kimmich has already won the Champions League trophy.
7. Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool)
Liverpool could not have won the Premier League in 2020 without Virgil Van Dijk. It’s not just the Dutch defender’s performance that puts Liverpool ahead, but his out-of-field influence has raised the club’s standards over the years.
Since returning to the center from Southampton in 2018, Liverpool have been supporting Van Dijk in every progressive move he has made under Jurgen Klopp.
He has done so on the domestic and European fronts, and the Netherlands hopes the 29-year-old will be fit enough to stand out in Euro 2020.
6. Kylian Mbappe (PSG)
It may not be long before Kylian Mbappe surpasses the fading stars of Ronaldo and Messi in this list of the best footballers in the world – but right now the French are just below those two icons of the game.
Why? Well, for those living in the corridors of power in Paris Saint-Germain, the difference between greatness and superstardom is the Champions League.
Mbappe had a great time in 2020 but could not take his team to the Champions League final against Bayern Munich. In the first half of the 2020/21 campaign in the new season, the Frenchman has won with 17 goals for the club and the country.
And summer could be as good a year for Mbappe as 2018, when he helped France win the World Cup. Les Bleus is a favorite to win Euro 2020 and PSG will be competing for its first Champions League crown. Mbappe is currently scoring for fun, so there’s nothing to suggest he won’t get his hands on at least one big trophy by the end of 2021.
5. Erling Haaland (Dortmund)
Rarely has a footballer made such an impact on the scene of a European club as Norway’s Erling Haaland. At just 20 years old, one might argue that the forward is too young to be considered one of the best footballers on the planet. But just looking at the 90-minute Netherlands in a Dortmund shirt will tell you.
The Dutch goal scoring form is exceptional. At one point in 2020, he was averaging one goal every 55 minutes and 54 seconds.
The young man translated his skipping attack game from the German Bundesliga to Dortmund with a high-flying Austrian flight from RB Salzburg as if nothing had happened.
Like Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Eden Hazard in their youth, the Netherlands is almost almost untouched when occupied. Don’t be surprised if he adds to the list in 2022.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
When Ronaldo arrived at Juventus, his delivery was clear: Champions League win. Now in his third season in Italy, the veteran – who turns 36 in February – has not yet arrived. There is no doubt about Ronaldo’s great abilities and he can be reduced to being the greatest footballer in Portuguese history.
But in 2021, its wings have been cut off. Ronaldo’s Juventus are working hard in Serie A and Portugal has not been the best. Significantly, Joe bombed the last 16 of the 2020 Champions League, reaching the quarter-finals a year earlier.
Ronaldo is slipping in this ranking of the best footballers in the world. He still relies on statistics and can win the majority of Serie A games without any problems. But the only real price from Joe is in Europe.
And that’s where the former Manchester United superstar needs to be delivered.
3. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City)
No Premier League player is as technically gifted as Kevin de Bruyne. Eagle-eyed Playmaker has the battle and the brain to dominate sports at home and abroad.
Manchester City would not be the same without de Bruyne. He is the assisting king, when the city scored a goal provided by Belgium once in every two Premier League games.
Of course, having a team of shining stars around them helps de Bruyne’s club performances, but the 29-year-old has also prepared for Belgium.
He could be a standout player at Euro 2020 in the summer, with Belgium looking to go one step further than being knocked out of the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup. This could be the year where De Bruyne became the best footballer on the planet.
2. Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
It remains to be seen where Lionel Messi will play at the end of 2021, but there is no doubt that the Barcelona superstar’s career is on the verge of ending. Messi, who has topped the list of most ‘best footballers in the world’ for the past decade, has moved to the top here.
Although no player can change the game at all like Messi, he did not have the influence he used on the football pitch in Argentina.
In the 2019/20 season, Messi scored less than 30 goals in La Liga for the first time in three years, while his influence is not enough to propel the club to its first Champions League victory since 2015.
Macy turns 34 in the summer and could be out of nine camps. Before that, they still have domestic and continental trophies to fight for – and there are no players left on this planet as brilliant as Argentina. But even he will admit that he is no longer a high dog.
1. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
Robert Lewandowski cannot be considered the best after appearing in many ‘World’s Best Footballers’ lists like Ronaldo and Messi. A striker whose abilities have adapted to such changes over the years, Lewandowski is as much a goal scorer as you will ever see.
Poland have a dead eye for goals in one-on-one international situations and their numbers are impressive. Lewandowski scored 45 professional goals in 2020 – for the fourth year in a row he broke the 40-goal hurdle.
He was also named European best Footballer of the Year and FIFA Player of the Year, but was not awarded the Ballon d’Or in 2020 after the award was controversially revoked due to Covid 19.
2021 will be another significant year ahead, with Byron in the Bundesliga in the knockout stages of the Champions League and Poland with a strong external contender to win Euro 2020 in the summer.
