It is the conversation that dominates pubs, internet forums and the office space. Who is the greatest footballer on the planet?
This week, Sportsmail will be counting down the top 100 players in world football.
From Nos 80-61, there are 11 players who ply their trade in the Premier League, and a certain Wayne Rooney takes his place in the list…
80 Thibaut Courtois
Age: 24, Team: Chelsea and Belgium, Position: Goalkeeper
Though definitely not in the most brilliant form right now, Courtois has amply demonstrated in his young career the potential to be among the world’s best.
The Belgian needs to reset and recall his performances for Atletico Madrid that saw them break the monopoly of Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga and reach the 2014 Champions League final.
Thibaut Courtois is not in the best form, but still makes his way into our list at No 80
79 Alvaro Morata
