Simply the best. An incredible defender with speed and a lot of intelligence in his moves.
He didn't score much in his career but it's all thanks to him that France beat Croatia in semi final of 1998 world cup.
Thuram quickly became one of the best defenders in the world after his debeut he became a very essential part of the France national soccer team he was fast and reliable on corner kicks he deserves to be on the top ten of this list not 17.
7th is too low for a great defender like Thuram. He doesn't let anything through. Top 5 definitely.
Number 1 in the field and number 1 in the peoples heart. he more championships won than anyone he, and with his international team. He is a defensive man package, his a complete defender.
Quick as lightning and has an incredible shot from distance. His runs up the sideline should impress anyone in the right mind.
He is the total package at Defenseman. He can conver anyone in his path and is strong enough to take down any Attacker. He can run and do everything. Maicon is a stud.
Only defender to win a ballon d or
He is the best right back in the world by far and part of one of the best teams ever. Named in the world XI but still placed in the 50s? Really?
I joke at this page how can dani alves be 49th when people like terry carragher and luiz etc are in front of I'm laugh out loud by far the best attack minded defender in the world

Beckenbauer's true heir.
Nothing else to be said.

One of the best headers of the ball in professional soccer. for a man of his height, he climbs very high - has a great leap. Very clean defender.
Regarded as one of the best central defenders in the world, has been captain of the Argentine national team for almost 10 years and has played in three World Cups.

I don't know why this guy doesn't get more credit. The fact that he does not play in europe is puzzling me. Did any one watch him in world cup?
