5 Best Left-backs In The World

1. Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba Ramos is a 32-year-old Spanish professional footballer currently playing as a left-back for Barcelona and the Spain national team.

To my opinion, Alba is one of the best left-backs in the world and he is renowned for his link-up play, positioning, movement, and his ability to deliver crosses into the box

Alba started his professional football career at Barcelona, where he won sixteen major honours, including five La Liga titles, five Copas del Rey and one UEFA Champions League.

With the Spain national team, he was an integral member of the team that won UEFA Euro 2012, and was also part of the squads at the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 and 2020 European Championship.

2. Andrew Robertson

Andrew Henry Robertson is a 27-year-old Scottish professional footballer currently playing as a left-back for Premier League club, Liverpool, and the Scotland national team.

Considered by me as one of the best left-backs in the world, Robertson is known for his crossing, tackling, work-rate, stamina and speed.

Robertson's professional football career kicked off with Queen's Park nine years ago before joining Dundee United. His performance during his first season as a professional led to his naming as the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year and also making his international debut. Four years ago, he joined Liverpool, where he won the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

3. Lucas Digne

Lucas Digne is a 28-year-old French professional footballer who plays as a left-back for the English club, Everton, and the France national team.

One of the best left-backs in the world to my opinion, Digne started his career at Lille before joining Paris Saint-Germain eight years ago. After spending a season at Roma, he joined Barcelona five years ago. Despite not playing regularly at either club, he won twelve honours at Paris and Barcelona combined. He joined his current club, Everton, three years ago.

With the France national team, Digne represented France at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 2016 and UEFA Euro 2020.

4. Nélson Semedo

Nélson Cabral Semedo is a Portuguese professional soccer player currently playing as a left-back for Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Portugal national team.

To my opinion, Semedo is one of the best left-backs in the world and is renowned for his speed, ball control, and holding on the ball.

Six years ago, Semedo made his first senior appearance for Portugal and represented the nation at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 2019 UEFA Nations League Finals and UEFA Euro 2020.

5. Leonardo Cavaliere

Leonardo Bonucci Cavaliere is a 34-year-old Italian professional footballer currently playing as a centre-back for Juventus and the Italy national team.

Considered by me as one of the best left-backs in the world, Bonucci is primarily known for his technique, passing range, and his ability to launch an attack from the back with long passes.

Eleven years ago, he was signed to Juventus, where he won six consecutive Serie A titles with the team between 2012 and 2017.

At the international level, Bonucci represented Italy at two FIFA World Cups, three European Championships, and a FIFA Confederations Cup.
