#1 Cristiano Ronaldo

Parma Calcio v Juventus - Serie A
33, but still the world's best

Yes, Cristiano is the oldest player on this list. He is also the best. Similar to LeBron James in the NBA, he continues to defy logic and it could be argued he is actually getting better with age. It remains to be seen how long his performances will last, but the Portuguese star obviously has no eyes on retirement as he has just started a new adventure with Juventus.

The 33-year-old deserves credit for adapting his game over the past few years in order to remain at the peak of the footballing world. He ended his Real Madrid career with an absurd 450 goals in 438 games and he is also his country's top scorer with 85 goals. After winning an unlikely Euro title with Portugal in 2016, Cristiano has nothing left to prove. Let's just enjoy the best footballer in the world, whilst we still can.
