Cristiano Ronaldo was voted top player of the year by popular UK soccer magazine, FourFourTwo.  After winning his fourth title of the season, this is hardly a surprise.

But how about the other players on the list? Would they have made your cut?

FourFourTwo’s "best of" list differed slightly from France Football’s Ballon d’Or winners. For the English, Uruguayan player Luiz Suárez placed 3rd - not Griezmann.

Brazilian player Neymar placed 5th on the list, falling behind his teammates, the other two members of Barcelona’s offensive trio, Messi and Suárez, who placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

It’s no wonder. Goals for Neymar this season have run scarce and his game has lost its edge.

Here’s the full list from FourFourTwo. Check it out and let us know if you agree or disagree with their rankings in the comments:
