Presenting the finest players on the planet, as voted for by FFT and our band of motley contributors from around the globe...
Welcome to the ninth edition of FourFourTwo's Best 100 Football Players in the World. We'll be revealing the cream of the footballing world over the next five days, with FFT's best player in the world crowned on Friday.
Tune in throughout the week to see who makes (or indeed doesn't make) our list for 2015. The editorial team have argued long and hard over who should and shouldn't feature this year, taking in the views of our long list of correspondents from all four corners of the globe. (Do globes have corners? They do now.)
Here you will find the full list from 100-1, plus analysis, long reads, art, quizzes, videos, interviews and more... and don't forget to get involved by giving us your view. Use the hashtag #FFT100.
