The 2013 Ballon d'Or ceremony, which was held in Zurich on Monday, honoured the best players in world football over the last calendar year.
The current batch of players will eventually make way for the next generation - but which players are destined to succeed them at the top?
This list features ten candidates; however, the likes of Neymar - who is the same age as some of the players on this list - has been left out on the basis that he's already widely regarded as one of the world's best players.
Do you agree or disagree with the selection? Think someone else deserves to be on the list?
