UEFA ranks James Milner among best players at Euro 2016

Euro 2016 in France is approaching fast. In light of the tournament, the UEFA has published the results of their specially designed player barometer, which analyses statistics and performance data.

The current top three, as the rankings is updated regularly, has been the same for some time now. With Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo leading the way, followed by Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and France’s Antoine Griezmann.

Another France international, West Ham’s Dimitri Payet, has been dubbed a fast riser by the UEFA and is currently ranked fourth. Just in front of…James Milner. The Liverpool and England star has been ranked as high as third and sits in front of top guns like Koke, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Paul Pogba, Harry Kane, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, and Kevin De Bruyne.

Tottenham’s Dele Alli is the next highest-ranked England international at 14, with his team-mate Harry Kane ranked at 23, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy at 28, Eric Dier at 34, Ryan Bertrand at 42, Adam Lallana at 47, and the dropped Danny Drinkwater at 52, while Marcus Rashford (82) ranks above Wayne Rooney (86).
