Top Soccer Players of 2012

List Criteria: Please rank the players based only on their 2012 season

The top soccer players of 2012 are the leading scorers and fieldsmen who will see the most success in the 2012 season. While it's easy to argue about how to select which footie player is the best, each of the stars below all strive to lead their respective teams to league titles and cup championships. Think one soccer player is better than the bunch? Want to add one not listed or re-rank this list your way? Do all of that and more below!

If you judge soccer players by their 2012 stats, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi easily rank among the top. All set scoring records led their leagues in statistical categories and, in the past, have led their team to Cup victories.
