My Top 5

5. Ronaldinho- still a great player, but he dropped off a little last year.

4. Gianluigi Buffon- the best goalkeeper in the world should get plenty of votes.

3. John Terry- the English captain has stepped up time and time again.  He is truly all class.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo- the young, Portugues playmaker made his breakout move, what will he do in the upcoming season?

 

 

 

1. Kaka- the man who dominated the UEFA Champions League last year is the winner of the FIFA Player of the Year Award.  He is now the best Brazilian player, let's see how he plays for the remainder of the season.
