The best footballers in the world are no longer limited to a small number of superstars. Several players, such as Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe, have proven themselves time again. The list also includes players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Virgil Van Dijk, and Kevin De Bruyne.
Virgil Van Dijk
Virgil Van Dijk has been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Both players are five times Champions League winners, but Van Dijk says he has a different skill set and is more difficult to play against. His strong body and excellent technique make him a very difficult opponent to deal with. He has also been compared to Jamie Vardy, who is also a star in England’s national team.
The Dutch international can play in a variety of positions. He can play low block, long direct, and possession football. Van Dijk’s pace and agility make him a valuable defensive asset. His goal-scoring record and impressive record in Europe have made him one of the best in the world.
Another strength of Van Dijk is his ability to read the game. The Dutch international is often able to anticipate the opponent’s next move, which makes him a dangerous player. He is also an excellent tackler and has made a number of interceptions, which is not an easy feat for a defender to perform in the Premier League.
The Dutch international began his career with Groningen before moving to Celtic in 2013. His spell at Celtic saw him win the Scottish League Cup and Scottish Premiership. In 2015, he moved to Southampton and quickly became the most sought-after defensive player in the world. In January of 2018 he joined Liverpool for a reported PS75 million. The Dutch international made an immediate impact on the defensive line of the club.
Kylian Mbappe is one of France’s most talented players, and he has already won more trophies than most players in their entire career. He was only 18 years old when he moved to Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco, and he has already become the second most expensive player in the history of the club, behind only Neymar. He is a four-time French league title winner and was named Ligue 1 Player of the Year in 2017/18. He also won the World Cup this summer with France.
The young forward is incredibly talented and possesses an incredibly wide range of skills. His pace is exceptional, but teams have adapted and learned how to stop him. That is where Mbappe’s guile comes in handy, especially when he changes direction. The talented forward has a great understanding with the team’s main creators, and he knows exactly when to make a move when he has the ball.
Despite being so young, Mbappe has surpassed the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Forbes’ list of highest-paid footballers. By the time he retires from professional soccer, he is expected to earn $128 million a year. This is more than Ronaldo or Messi made in their entire career, and it’s easy to see why Mbappe is one of the best young talents in the world.
Kevin De Bruyne
The Belgian striker has been playing for Chelsea since January. He has been crowned Premier League Player of the Season and finished second in the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year awards. He also won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award. During the 2010-11 season, Kevin De Bruyne scored five goals and provided 16 assists in 32 league matches. He has also won the FA Cup and League Cup with Manchester City.
Kevin De Bruyne’s goal against Leicester was a stunning achievement. City were two points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race when the Belgian went on a spirited performance. The Belgian turned on in a big way, starting the move that led to Riyad Mahrez’s goal and finishing with a surging run from midfield.
Kevin De Bruyne is a highly gifted player with exceptional speed and agility. His ability to control the game makes him a difficult player to stop. This makes him one of the best players in the world.
Johan Cruyff is a Dutch legend, a striker who was gifted with an incredible talent and who has changed the way football is played at the highest level. With his creativity and innovative thinking, he has inspired new generations of players to play football. And he has also used his skills to become a highly successful manager, refining the ‘Total Football’ concept developed by Rinus Michels.
Johan Cruyff joined Barcelona in 1973, in a record-breaking $2 million deal. He soon became one of the best players in the world, and his chemistry with the Catalan club proved to be a perfect match. In the 1973/74 season, he led Barcelona to their first La Liga title since 1960 and a 5-0 win over Real Madrid. His performance was so exemplary that he won his third Ballon d’Or award at the end of the season.
Cruyff is often regarded as one of the greatest players in football history, and was voted European Player of the Century in 1999. His dazzling dribbling skills and great ball control made him a world-class player. His club career was legendary. His talents helped propel Ajax to the elite level, winning eight Eredivisie titles and three European Cups in a row. His goals totaled 194 in 287 appearances, making him one of the most prolific players of all time.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento
The retired Brazilian football star Edson Arantes do Nasciment, better known by his nickname, was considered one of the greatest footballers in history. He was an iconic player who played for Santos, New York Cosmos, and the Brazilian national team. During his playing career, he scored a total of 721 goals and became one of the world’s leading scorers.
Born in 1940, Edson Arantes do Nasciment, KBE is widely considered one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. He was voted by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) as the world’s greatest footballer of all time. He was nominated for this award three times, with Maradona coming in second place two years later.
Born in Tres Coracoes, Brazil, Edson Arantes do Nascimenta went by his soccer nickname Pele. As a boy, he played soccer in an impoverished neighborhood with rags and soccer balls. At fifteen, he joined a small soccer club in Bauru. As a young man, Pele went on to compete at the 1958 World Cup. He scored five goals in the final. Due to several injuries, he was forced to retire after that tournament.
Lionel Messi has long been considered one of the best players in the world. A prolific scorer, Messi has accumulated hundreds of goals in his career with FC Barcelona. He has also won several trophies with the Blaugrana. His impressive statistics have earned him numerous accolades, including seven Ballon d’Or awards and four UEFA Champions League titles. His success has led many to believe that he is the best player of his generation and may even be the best player of all time.
In addition to being a fantastic scorer, Messi has an impressive array of skills and attributes. He’s a gifted playmaker who makes his teammates better. His vision and tactical intelligence enable him to find free spaces and build attacks. He’s also incredibly fast, and he has exceptional acceleration.
Messi’s ability to create magic on the field has made him the best player of his generation. The Barcelona superstar is often compared to the legendary Michael Jordan, but he’s far from alone. He has a trophy cabinet packed with major silverware.
