Greatest Soccer Players of the 2000-2010 Decade


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Rafael Marquez

One of the first Mexican internationals he is just a great player especially during those barcElina years

42Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil to me is more than just a regular midfielder. His passing, vision, his control and his speed is so unique, that I would rank him in the top 20. This guy indeed is almost a successor of Zidane.

Arsenal and the great Arsene Wenger get him for their record signing fee even Thiery Henry was not worth that need I say more?
