We're approaching the final months of 2013 - and, as a result, we now have a good idea as to which players deserve a place in the world's Team of the Year.
There's been no major international tournament - although the Confederations Cup served up plenty of entertainment - but there's been plenty of drama in all of the domestic leagues around the world.
The players on this list have been, in my opinion, the best-performing players in their respective positions over the course of 2013.
Feel free to disagree - and don't forget to have your say in the comments section below.
