World Cup 2014 Qualifying 50: Ranking the Best 50 Players in WC2014 Qualifying

Welcome to the B/R World Cup 50, where we've graded and ranked the best international players in the entire world according to their abilities and importance to their respective national sides.

This ranking system encompasses every player or nation who has taken part in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers for the 2014 event in Brazil, splits them into their respective roles and uses a proven methodology to grade them against each other.

You'll be able to find out how many players your country managed to sneak into the Top 50, where your club's representatives ended up, which players for each position came out on top and who might be key to hopes of success at the finals themselves next year.

As always, we've left room to factor in a player's relative importance to his national team, along with using the ranking system rather than leaving the scoring as an absolute indicator of ability.
