15. David Silva (Spain)
At 32, David Silva alights on Russian soil a mature yet supremely sophisticated vintage. Like Italian moped drivers, Silva is able to find space where it doesn't appear to exist, bamboozling despairing Premier League defenders in the process. The Spaniard was named in the PFA Team of the Year for 2018, putting in world class performances in spite of the personal strife of his son Mateo's premature birth in January.
