The Best Soccer Players of 2013

List Criteria: Potential, what they have shown in 2012, also age based on the characteristics of the players

This is a list that seeks to predict who the best soccer players of 2013 will be by the end of the year. Some of these top athletes in soccer, like Cristiano Ronaldo, are already listed among the best athletes of all time and the best soccer players ever, so it's not a stretch that they would end up as some of the top soccer players of 2013. Other players, like Mario Gotze, are up-and-coming soccer players to watch in 2013. There's really no telling which of these soccer players (football players if you're anywhere besides the US) will become the next great soccer star, let alone the greatest soccer player of 2013.

Who will be the best soccer player of 2013? That's for the year to decide and for you to vote on now! If you don't see your favorite soccer player on the list, make sure to add them so others can vote on these outstanding soccer players to score the top position as the best soccer player of 2013.
