Top 100 Footballers At This Very Moment In Time: December 2016

We know that you’re far too excited for the next fully discussed version of the Top 100 Footballers in The World list (Coming out on New Year’s Eve).

For more information on how the formula works to rank players or who is on the fringes of the list, comment below.


Dele Alli’s run inside of the top 100 was incredibly short-lived as he falls back off the list to 102, while Santi Cazorla is the only other departee as his injury troubles continue. Cesar Azpilicueta and Edin Dzeko are the two incoming players for their fantastic performances in recent months for Chelsea and Roma respectively while Harry Kane is the biggest riser of the month and Nolito is the biggest decliner.
