Congratulations to Gareth Bale, Goal's 238th World Player of the Week winner!

The Shortlist

Arjen Robben - Bayern Munich

 @MO_Bulhan"Is at the same level as Ribery and should rival him for the Ballon d'Or."

Goal's Falko Bloeding: "Made one and scored one in Moscow and then struck twice in the 2-0 win over Eintracht Braunschweig."

Diego Costa - Atletico Madrid

 @DreCordero: "Costa's goal doesn't make any sense and Simeone's reaction was perfect."

Goal's Craig Turnbull: "Closed the gap on Ronaldo in the race for the European Golden Shoe with a wonder goal."

Katlego Mashego - Sundowns

 @mxomandla: "He's destroying his former team #mashego #swa #sundowns

Goal's Ignat Manjoo: "Scored two goals against his former club Swallows to send his side to the top of the league."

Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal

@HenryWinter: Brilliant from Aaron Ramsey and Cardiff fans. Good to see such mutual respect."

Goal's Alec Fenn: "He now has 13 goals in all competitions after scoring twice against former club Cardiff City."
