Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi top yet another category of best football players of their respective age groups.
In an attempt to understand the preference of the football fans of various generations, Marca conducted a very brief poll.
In the poll, four football players from each age of 17 to 35 were listed out. The audience had to select one football player from each of the 19 groups that they considered the best among them.
With four winners, FC Barcelona had the most number of players as winners. Real Madrid, on the other hand, were the next best with 3 players making the cut.
