Do you think any of these 10 superstars have played well enough this year to earn a place on the list?
10) Daniel Sturridge – Liverpool
Ok, so the Englishman has not consistently proved himself over a number of years to be in genuine contention for a Ballon D’or award, but in 2013 – there have been few better strikers in world football. He’s scored 21 goals since January of 2013, formed a sensational relationship with Luis Suarez (who quite rightly has made the list) and is now recognised as England’s spearhead forward. If one English player were to make this list, it would probably have been Sturridge.
