Football's Top 10 Dribblers Since 2006/07 Have Been Revealed

Lionel Messi has more successful dribbles in football than anyone else in the past 13 years, and his rival Cristiano Ronaldo is only fifth on the list.

In the past 13 seasons of football Messi has taken on a defender and been successful an incredible 1880 times, according to Squawka.

That puts him top of the pile in football when it comes to dribbling, with Real Madrid's Eden Hazard second on the list, though most of those would have been for Chelsea, and Fiorentina's Franck Ribery in third.

The stark gap between Ronaldo and Messi shows how much the former has changed his game in recent years, certainly after moving to Real Madrid in 2009.

When he signed for Manchester United as a winger he was well known for his flicks and tricks as he took defenders on and usually embarrassed them.

Later on his career he changed his style and became more of a cold hearted finisher who scored goals a plenty and became Real Madrid's all time top scorer.

Joaquin's place on the list shows of an incredible consistency throughout his career. The Real Betis winger might not be one of the top tier wingers but he has played at the top tier for a long time.

He made his Betis debut in 2000 and at 38-years-old is still impressing in La Liga, having scored eight times this season and made two other goals for his team, as they sit in 12th place in La Liga.

Who is the best dribbler you've ever watched?
