Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Each year is linked to an article on the particular season associated with the month of that year.
  2. ^ Diego Costa did not play with the Spain national team when the award was given, so he is considered in that moment as Brazilian.
  3. ^ Until Rafinha does not play with the Spain national football team, he is considered as Brazilian.
