The soccer world has always amazed us with its magical show on the field and the players’ lifestyle. In this article, we have the 10 best soccer players in the world right now. Our ranks are based on the ability of each player. It is okay if you have different opinions about this but we still will show you our best 10 players in 2020 and maybe a few years from now.

#1 Lionel Messi – Barcelona FC

Lionel Messi can be touted as the number one best player in the world today. Many articles had mentioned his name for similar titles as well. The presence of Lionel Messi in the soccer world has made everyone like the Argentine. Do you know why? 

It is because he is the best at everything. If you have been watching him grow from time to time, you will notice that no one could run with the ball like Messi. During his career, he already scored 717 goals.

#2 Neymar – Paris Saint Germain

We should say that 2019 was not a memorable year for Neymar. He got injuries, poor form, suspensions, off-field issues, and ongoing transfer rumors. Even we can say that 2019 could be one of the worst years for him.

However, before those dramas were on the air, this Brazilian extremely talented footballer had changed the game. 

Neymar is terrifically skillful. His perceptive passer skill that is accompanied by the world-class finishing just made him much more accountable in the soccer world. As a young footballer, Neymar has plenty of time to become the world’s best like what he had shown during his time at Barcelona FC.

#3 N’Golo Kante – Chelsea FC

Some of you might be asking what he had done to deserve the number 3 best player in the world. Kante does not play like other football superstars. He has no terrific footwork nor scored in every match.

On the other hand, Kante does not act like a superstar as well. He drives a Mini Cooper, no partying, and no fancy clothes from designers. This is what makes him terrifyingly brilliant, on the other hand. 

He chases the ball relentlessly for the whole match, changing the game by an attacking midfielder, or standing in front of the back players. Kante has always added value to the team in a huge way.

#4 Virgil Van Dijk – Liverpool FC

We all agree that Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, and John Terry were the best defenders when it comes to Premier League history. Virgil Van Dijk is three players combined. Jamie Redknapp was giving the words for sure. Van Dijk has the physicality of Vidic, the brain of Ferdinand, and Terry’s heart.

#5 Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City

Let’s think with an analogy. Rolls Royce Phantom is Kevin De Bruyne. He is classy, luxurious, and elegant yet holding a powerful engine light under the hood. He always plays so calmly and effortlessly yet delivers devastating effects. 

De Bruyne has an excellent passing range that cannot be compared to. When he infuses the acute awareness and sublime first touch, the game is in his hands. You might get a slight memory of Zinedine Zidane when watching Kevin De Bruyne on the field.

#6 Kylian Mbappe – Paris Saint Germain

Kylian Mbappe has collected tons of trophies and he is still 21 years old. Talking about the trophies, he has one World Cup, the Coupe de France, and three Ligue 1 titles to mention a few of what he got. During his career, he has scored 122 goals already. 

When Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were at the same age, they did not score as many goals as Mbappe. Mbappe is the modern day’s greatest goal-scorer and football player.

#7 Paul Pogba – Manchester United

Paul Pogba played well in Juventus. However, he could not show impressive play in Manchester United. It might be caused by himself and how the former manager of his team failed to find the best interest of Pogba in the first place. Also, the distinct lack of quality at Old Trafford did not help as well. 

However, the best Pogba is when you see him playing for his country. The power, grace, and flair shown by him on the field just like how a true midfield general. When Pogba is happy, he gives the world-class you will admire.

#8 Eden Hazard – Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has excellent dribbling ability and only a few in the world that could put him to second. Over the last decade, Hazard has shown successful dribbles, especially during his years with Chelsea. 

Today, after he moved to La Liga, he still maintains his standards even though Messi is still one second higher than Hazard. In the previous season Hazard only played seven games due to his injury. We hope that after his recovery he will rise higher.

#9 Sadio Mane – Liverpool FC

Sadio Mane is another best player in the world today. He even got the nomination for the FIFA Best Awards in 2019. However, he could make the top three by the end of the season. Even Lionel Messi agrees that Mane has shown the best performance in 2019 especially for his team, Liverpool.

#10 Kalidou Koulibaly – SSC Napoli

According to rumors, almost all big clubs in Europe are interested to bring in Koulibaly away from his team right now. Manchester City and Manchester United wanted him so badly and Chelsea also did the same thing too. On the other hand, Pairs Saint Germain and Real Madrid were also ready to bring him to the team. 

Of course, they want Koulibaly so badly. He has shown a solid performance during his career in Napoli especially along 2019. He was also the best defender in the last season of Serie A.

So, these are our picks for the best football players in the world for 2020. Some of you might be wondering why Cristiano Ronaldo could not make it in the top 10 list. Well, everyone deserves to evolve and grow.
