International record: 131 Caps, 10 Goals

2015/16: Sergio Ramos remained a key figure in Real Madrid's side, turning 30 in March, and still has plenty to give at the top level.

Real came agonisingly close to pipping Barcelona for the La Liga title, missing out by a single point. Ramos played 23 times in the league, missing time through injury, and predictably - suspension.

He scored two goals, provided three assists, and picked up seven yellow cards and two red cards along the way.

Nearly a Manchester United player? Last summer Sergio Ramos was strongly linked with finally leaving Real Madrid and signing for Manchester United.

The Star reported United were left raging by Ramos' U-turn, when he decided to snub their advances and sign an extension with Real until 2020.

Ramos confirmed just last month that he considered an offer from United, and for a moment thought about taking it, SkySports reported.

What can we expect? Ramos will be at the heart of Spain's defence alongside bitter Barcelona rival Gerard Pique.

Pique is rated one place higher than Ramos on our list at 19, and the duo will need to put club rivalry aside to ensure Spain's backline is more 2012 than 2014.

The defender is capable of popping up with a goal or two at crucial times, but if the game starts going against Spain then he can become a red card walking, and will need to keep his head in the latter stages if La Roja are to retain their crown.
