We pretty much said this for Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it goes double here: Love him or hate him, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo boasts two undeniable things: Talent -- just ask our experts about the Real Madrid talisman, ranked No. 1 in Europe by ESPN FC -- and style.

Here's a look at the latter:
