Stourbridge's own Jude Bellingham is ranked the number one footballer in the world in the newly released Top Trumps.

Top Trumps World Football Stars Top 200, launched today (June 4), ranks the best male and female players across the globe based on statistics such as age, goals, trophies, height, and caps.

The prized top spot has been clinched by England's Bellingham, who has a property in Bromsgrove.

The 20-year-old's ranking has surprised many given his comparative youth and lower number of caps and goals when compared with more established players such as Lionel Messi.

Notwithstanding these metrics, the Real Madrid midfielder's market value of €150 million has secured him the coveted top spot.

Among those surpassed by the new Champions League winner are top football stars like Messi, Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé.

Today's range is the first of six collectable packs, with a new one set for release monthly until November.

The entire 200-player collection costs £48.

To promote their release, Top Trumps has partnered with The Rest is Football podcast, which stars hosts Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Micah Richards, for the launch.

Speaking about the partnership, Match of the Day host Gary Lineker said: "I'm delighted that The Rest Is Football will be partnering with Top Trumps ahead of a huge summer of sport, headlined by England's quest to be crowned European Champions in Germany.

"Playing Top Trumps together took me back to years gone by, playing the game with my kids on summer holidays.

"The Top Trumps World Football Stars Top 200 collection is a must-have for anyone who loves football, and a great way to engage, educate and entertain young fans on the world's best players like World Cup hero Lionel Messi and England wonderkid Jude Bellingham."
