Barcelona's newest kid on the block Neymar has gone a long way towards keeping critics quiet in 2013, following up a magnificent Confederations Cup for Brazil with a bright start to life in La Liga.

Neymar arrived in Spain with a hefty £48m price tag hanging round his shoulders but has wasted little time in showing the raw talent which saw him draw comparisons with Santos legend Pele back home, with some impressive displays also including a Champions League hat-trick against Celtic.

It's easy to forget that Neymar is just 21 as he prepares to put the weight of a nation's expectation on his shoulders at next month's World Cup, with success surely enough to see him rocket up this list into the stratosphere of legendary status.
