This award has nothing to do with FIFA’s Best awarded or with the Ballon d’Or of the French magazine. It does not even exist, and it is an excuse for our readers to meet the ten soccer players that we consider the most beautiful on the planet.
In any case, it should be noted that this list is not based only on beauty but on an arbitrariness that we call the beauty-talent union and on a vote that took place on the Internet and is still open. Do take a good look at our choice and discuss it, we have arguments in store for our detractors.
