Top 100 Football Players of the 2010s

Name the top 100 football players of the 2010s.
Each year since 2012, The Guardian has published a ranking of the 100 best football players of the year. The scoring system works in the way that the player's points are the sum of the player's positions through the decade, where placing number 1 equals 100 points and placing number 100 equals 1 point.
The list for 2010 and 2011 are taken from FourFourTwo.
Red = Player has retired (as of February 1st 2020)
Blue = Player plays outside the top 5 leagues (as of February 1st 2020)
