Who is the best football player in the world? The answer will never be agreed upon, it will never be fully settled, it will never be definitively decided.
Naturally, we thought it was a good idea to at least have a go at rounding up the best of the best in world football.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have ruled the roost for the lion's share of 20 years, but their reign has come under increasing threat from the next generation of stars with high hopes of reaching the top.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd)
Ronaldo is one of the big sliders on this list after previously sitting firmly in the top two for over a decade.
It's safe to say his best days are behind him as he approaches the final gambits of his career, but there's no shame in that and he remains a lethal tool in United's arsenal.
Ronaldo has evolved from pacey winger to talismanic centre forward and remains one of the best in the business when it comes to keeping his cool and scoring clutch goals at the death.
