Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo was by far and away the most prolific goalscorer of 2013, but still misses out on topspot among The Guardian's distinguished panel.

Ronaldo found the back of the net a staggering 69 times in 59 games across the calendar year, comfortably clearing his own personal haul of 62 in 2012.

The Portuguese talisman also stood up to be counted for his country with a breathtaking hat-trick against Sweden in last month's decisive World Cup play-off, but is once again the bridesmaid at second place on another individual poll.
