Players of the year: 

  1. Chicharito
  2. Bryan Ruiz
  3. Andres Guardado

There were some exceptions that fans were upset about, for example, Keylor Navas of Costa Rica was left out at keeper. However, he was not named because he only played in friendlies for Costa Rica in 2015. Another name that could have made the list was Fabian Johnson for the USA, who had a good year for club and country.

Were there any others that you felt were snubbed? Someone named that should have been left off? Let us know in the comment section!
