Wayne Rooney stands alone as England's best player since David Beckham. He's not as good looking but the Spice Girls are definitely just as impressed with his soccer skills. Wayne is a pure striker. He's playing for Manchester United, the most popular soccer slub in the World.

Italy has been known for a country that doesn't really have any superstars, but they rely on teammwork. Well Andres Pirlo is probably the best team player in the world. He plays midfield and controls the play with great passing and strategy. He is currently playing for Italy's most popular team.. Juventus.

#2 Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo holds the record for most goals  for his team Real Madrid, the 2nd best team in the World. He is only 28 years old and he is still going strong scoring tons of goals and he gets to play on Portugal. He used to be the best player, but someone has stolen his crown, and won't give it back...

#1 Mionel Messi

Undisputed, the little guy from Argentina is only 25 years old and he is on pace to score more goals than anyone ever! He's not just a striker, but he controls the play and passes the ball with amazing touch and teammwork. Lionel plays for the best Football Club in the World... Barcelona and the team is stacking championships because of Lionel's play. The only question is... will Lionel ever lead his country to a World Cup victory? If he does, he could go down as the best player of all-time.
