Football is still the most popular sport in the world, with billions of fans watching their favorite teams each week. Although the sport is incredibly popular, few people can ever agree on who the best player is. While there are awards such as the Ballon ‘D’or and FIFA’s team of the year, these awards always generate a lot of discussion and debate over who was really the best in the world.

For some people, being the best means scoring the most goals, while for others, it means having an impact when it matters the most. For the best few years, the discussion has revolved around two players, in particular, Messi and Ronaldo. Widely considered to be two of the best to ever play the sport, it would be hard to disagree with these being ranked in the top ten. However, they’re getting much older now and haven’t had the same success in recent years, so do they still make the top ten in 2021?

In this article, author An Jung-Su will be creating a list of the top players in the world in 2021. Each of these players has had a big impact on their team, and while there might be some debate over who the best player is, it’s hard to argue with any of the players on this list.

Football and Gambling in 2021

Football is still one of the most popular pastimes in South Korea, but online casino gaming is also growing in popularity. As people turn more towards online entertainment, casinos offer an exciting way to have fun online. We asked a lot of Korean football players and in their opinion: "그리고 한국어 온라인 카지노는 슬롯, 블랙잭 등을 포함해 한국 플레이어들에게 수백 가지 게임을 제공하므로 뒤쳐지지 않습니다.". Popular online casinos are easy to use and allow players to enjoy online casino games from their computer or mobile device.

Despite being illegal, gambling is growing in popularity in South Korea. The country does offer land-based casinos, but all but one of these are only open to foreigners. When it comes to online gambling, however, the trend is increasing. More South Koreans than ever are signing up to enjoy gambling from their computers or mobile devices.

The Best Footballers of 2021

Ruben Dias

Ruben Dias is the only defender on the list but had an incredible season for Premier League winning side Manchester City. While defenders often get overlooked in the conversation for best player, they’re often instrumental to the success of a team. Many managers have commented on the fact that games might be won by attackers, but trophies are won by defenders.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Although 2021 was a difficult year for Ronaldo, he still scored an impressive twenty-nine league goals while playing for Juventus in Serie A. In addition, he scored four goals in the Champions League, although he failed to win a trophy for one of the first seasons in many years. Ronaldo is a born winner, and despite his age, he’s still among the best players in the world.

Heung-Min Son

Heung-Min Son has been in excellent form over the past few years. The South Korean international has been an integral part of Premier League Tottenham’s side and has tallied an impressive number of assists and goals.

Erling Haaland

Despite only being twenty-one years old, the Norwegian striker is already on most people’s list of top ten players. Leading the line for Dortmund, Haaland had an impressive 2021 and looks set to continue his form into the new year. He’s currently one of the most in-demand players, with clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona said to be interested.

Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah has been one of the best players in the Premier League for several seasons now, racking up plenty of goals and assists both in the league and the Champions League. He was an integral part of Liverpool’s title-winning side and has continued to terrify Premier League defenders in 2021.

Thomas Muller

Muller may not be the flashiest player in terms of skills, but he has plenty of talent and has been one of Bayern Munich’s best players over the last few seasons. In 2021, he featured heavily in the huge win over Barcelona in the Champions League and also helped Bayern lift the Bundesliga title.

Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe has been labeled as one of the best football players for many seasons now, but the last few years have seen him really step up and live up to his potential. While he had a disappointing Euro campaign in 2021, and lost out on the Ligue 1 title with PSG, he did score more than thirty goals.

Lionel Messi

Messi has been one of the best players in the world for many years now, although he’s not been quite at his usual level during the end of 2021. Still, he won the Ballon 'D'or after helping Argentina win the Copa America while also scoring twenty-eight league goals.

Karim Benzema

Benzema really stepped up for Real Madrid when Ronaldo left, helping to deliver much-needed goals for his side. In 2021, he scored thirty-six goals across all competitions and also starred for France in the Euros, despite their early exit.

Robert Lewandowski

Lewandowski had a record-breaking year in 2021, leading the line for Bayern and Poland while scoring sixty-nine goals in all competitions. He may have failed to drag Poland to Euro success, but he had a great year with Bayern Munich and narrowly missed out on the Ballon 'D'or.
