It is not easy for a defender to reach so many rankings but Virgil Van Dijk not allowing any dribble to pass behind him I convinced everyone that he deserved the glory given. He was named the best defender in Europe and also lifted the Champions League and European Super Cup trophies with his club.
At the national level he reached the Uefa Nations League final with the national team of Hollande, where he was defeated by Portugal with a minimum score of 1 to 0. Although the cup was not achieved his dignified appearance could not be left unappreciated by football critics.
He was also part of the best lineup of the year published by FIFA.
Even after the disappointment that the Barcelona team suffered after the incredible elimination from the Liverpool team, Lionel Messi developed a very good individual season.
Messi was the top scorer in the 5 biggest leagues in Europe with 36 goals winning the Golden Boot.
The 32-year-old scored 51 goals in 49 games and donated 19 assists. Scary statistics for a 32 year old.
He was also the winner of La Liga with Barcelona. Although more than a decade on the podium of the 3 best players of the year, he still continues to amaze us and give us emotions that only he can give us.
Named one of the best players in the history of football, the Argentine striker this year was voted the best player of the Champions League competition, the best striker of the year, as well as the best male player of the year, this award provided by FIFA.

The age goes away but Ronaldo continues and remains the same. The Portuguese in the 2018/19 season was in his first season with his new team Juventus, after the sudden and bitter departure for many fans from the Real Madrid team.
New team or old team, young or old, Ronaldo remains the same, maybe even better. The Portuguese had a pretty good season in his first year in Italy winning the Serie A championship and the Italian Cup.
He was Juventus' best player this season in both the league and the Champions League. He scored 19 goals in the championship and was named the best player of the year in the Italian championship for the 2018/19 season.
Ronaldo has also been very successful with his Portuguese national team, where he won the Nation League Cup. In the two final matches of the Nation League he scored a hattrick and was the main protagonist in winning this trophy. He is also known by all as the best Portuguese player in history and at the same time the best in history, along with Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo's work, dedication and dedication to the sport is evident in his statistics, even though he is 34 years old. Unbelievable but true. For one thing we are sure that he will continue to amaze us with his statistics for several more years. Until then we can only enjoy each of his matches.
Until the day of the discovery of this year's best player we will remain in the dilemma if we will have a continuation of the legacy and rivalry of a decade of players that to date have made us proud to exist at the same time with them , or their rule began with Kakana in 2008 and ended with Modric in 2018.
This was our list for the best footballers for 2019!
