123Bastian SchweinsteigerBastian Schweinsteiger is a German professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for English club Manchester United and the Germany national team.

One of the great German players at this era

How the hell is he not even in the list?!

124Jose Luis Chilavert

The best keeper,especially at the 90s era,was a great keeper and a great goalscorer with good skills and special attitude,we need players like this nowadays,soccer is lacking entertainment today

125Henrik Larsson

Should be in the top 10 without a doubt he was on another level to most of these players listed

One of the most remarkable players in history

Absolute world class player 53 goals in one season for Celtic as well as two other seasons with over 40, instrumental in taking Celtic to the UEFA cup final 2003 and was the driving force behind Barcas comeback against Arsenal in the CL final 2006, unreal prowess in front of goal on the deck and in the air

126Roque Santa Cruz
127Essam El-Hadary

A really Underrated player. But is great.

129David Beckham

Unparalleled set pieces, inspirational captain, legend.

Sure, beckham definitely wasn't as good on the wing as figo, ronaldinho, cr7, nedved, Giggs or even pires, but he should be top 100..

Maybe not as complete and good as zidane, Ronaldo, ronaldinho, cr7, messi, henry, pele, puskas, bergkamp, van basten and many others but surely top 3 of all time when it comes to free kicks, crosses and long passes.

130Cuauhtemoc Blanco

A remarkable player in the history of the game

134Andrea PirloAndrea Pirlo is an Italian professional footballer who plays for American club New York City FC in Major League Soccer and the Italy national team.

Best playmaker and set piece taker in history. Xavi and Ronaldo have nothing on Pirlo. If I had to choose 11 players to make the best team in history Pirlo would be in the center of my midfield

Should be higher up the list. Great vision, great playmaker, good free kicks and very wide range of passing abilities. One of the best centre mid playmakers alongside with riquelme, xavi and scholes.
