100 Footballers In The World 2017

There are many footballers in the world. Here is a list of some of them.

It is once again time for those hipsters over at The Guardian to release their list of the top 100 footballers in the world, which means it is once again time for us here at The18 to release OUR list of 100 footballers. Whereas The Guardian undoubtedly used science and metrics and judges of soccer talent to decide on their list, we just named some players off the tops of our heads. Our list does have one advantage over The Guardian's: ours is more inclusive, as this year we have included lady players.

See if your favorite footballer made the list! And check out the final results last year's competition: 100 Footballers In The World (2016)
