World football: Top 10 'No.10s' (1)

Published 31 Comments

There are some world class 'No.10s' plying their trade in the world of football right now.

However, how can you define a 'No.10'? Of course, many will point to a players shirt, but some of the greatest No.10s in world football don't actually wear the No.10 shirt. 

Many of the elite players that play in the role just off the striker have proved over the last few years just how good they can be as they have the job to create and score goals. 

So, looking at some of the stars over the past few years that have really excelled in the No.10 role, we will take a look at 10 of the best No.10s in world football. We will rate the 'No.10s' in order of current ability and success in the role.

Of course, people will always have different views on just what makes the ultimate No.10, so feel free to leave your views in the comment section below.

Note: Stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Franck Ribery left out of this list as they are recognised as wingers.
