The Top 10 Footballers in the World 2017- 30 Best Soccer Players (Ballon D’Or Award)

By Soccer Blog | Dec 8, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon D’Or for a fifth time in his career, adding the 2017 crown to the four previous trophies he had won in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016. The five Ballon D’Or titles bring him level with rival and Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, who has won it in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Between Messi and Ronaldo, they’ve won ALL Ballon D’Or titles since 2008.

Who was the last player apart from Ronaldo and Messi who won the Ballon D’Or?

That was Kaka, who won it in 2007

Who are the top ten footballers in the world in 2017?

1) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
2) Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
3) Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain)
4) Gigi Buffon (Juventus)
5) Luka Modric (Real Madrid)
6) Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
7) Kylian Mbappe (PSG)
8) N’Golo Kante (Chelsea)
9) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
10) Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

Who are the thirty best soccer players in the world in 2017?

The Ballon D’Or is a 30 man shortlist. Players 1-10 have been listed above, here is how the rest ranked

11) Edinson Cavani (PSG)
12) Isco (Real Madrid)
13) Luis Suarez (Barcelona)
14) Kevin de Bruyne (Man City)
15) Paulo Dybala (Juventus)
16) Marcelo (Real Madrid)
17) Toni Kroos (Real Madrid)
18) Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)
19) Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
20) David de Gea (Man Utd)

21/22 (Tied) Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund) and Leonardo Bonucci (Milan)
23) Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
24) Radamel Falcao (Monaco)
25) Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
26) Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid)
27) Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich)
28) Edin Dzeko (Roma)
29/30 (Tied) Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool) and Dries Mertens (Napoli)

The only English player in the top 10 is Tottenham’s Harry Kane. On current form, some of the placings would perhaps seem a tad odd- Kevin de Bruyne at 14th and Eden Hazard at 19th, for example.
