Top Ten Most Skillful Players In The World Ranked: See The Nigeria Player That Make The List

Football has witnessed some of the best dribblers in the past few decades. Ronaldinho, Franck Ribery, Lionel Messi and Neymar are a few of the illustrious names in this regard. 

The sport has since evolved to such an extent that even rookie players are challenging to dribble past. This, in turn, raises the stakes when a player tries to cut through the opposition lineup to create a goal-scoring opportunity.

9. Jonathan Ikone

A European Under-17 Champion with France, Jonathan Ikone, has been at the helm of the Lille midfield this season. Though the young Frenchman plays in an attacking role, he is no less than a box-to-box midfielder who drops back to defend whenever his team is under attack by the opposition.

The 21-year-old has made a total of 119 dribbles this season, with a success rate of 60.5%, in 28 appearances for Lille.


8. Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic's skill on the ball was never in much doubt, not even throughout a season that has seen him struggling to earn a starting place in Frank Lampard’s team. The young American has managed 2.4 dribbles per game this season, also contributing 5 goals to his team’s tally.


7. Allan Saint Maximin

With ongoing talks of a take-over shaping up in a positive direction, the ensuing financial injection might just see Newcastle United rebuild their entire squad from scratch. One position, though, that may not need a rejig is that of 23-year-old attacker Allan Saint-Maximin.


6. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) How long can a team like Crystal Palace hang on to a player like Wilfried Zaha? remains a question yet to be answered. While a transfer to a bigger EPL club looks imminent, the former Man. Utd. forward is making the best of his time playing of Palace. He’s managed 4.7 dribbles per game on average. It’s an amazing number that speaks of his talent and consistency in one of the toughest leagues in the world.  


5. Adama Traore It’s nearly impossible to predict the future in football with any degree of accuracy. With that being said, too many strange, unforeseen events would have to occur to keep Adama Traore from becoming one of the game’s next superstars. He’s managed 5.2 dribbles per game for Wolves, along with other impressive stats. Liverpool have come beckoning and Traore could be on his way to joining a team of Prem League champions come next season. Well earned!
