Most Underrated Football (Soccer) Players of All Timenbaallstar
The Top TenXW
Scholes is incredible, His vision and his range of passing and the way he strikes a football. Pure genius!
Scholes is so good. People don't appreciate midfielders as much as strikers or wingers. That is why he is underrated. Heard many players say the best player they have played with/against is Paul scholes.
I'm a Chelsea fan but I have to say that I've never seen a player who can control the flow of the game from the middle of the park like he can. Red cards aside, he was, as Zidane said, "the complete midfielder".
Best midfielder of all time outside of GIGGS.V18 Comments
People who run football clubs, they think in terms of buying players. Their goal shouldn't be to buy players, their goal should be to buy wins. And in order to buy wins, you need to buy a positive goal to defense ratio. Real Madrid and Portugal see Christiano Ronaldo and they see a star who's worth seventeen million dollars a year. When I see Christiano Ronaldo, what I see is... Is... An imperfect understanding of where wins come from. The guy's got a great shot. He's a decent passer. He can do tricks. But is he worth the seventeen million dollars a year that the Real Madrid are paying him? No. No. Football thinking is medieval. They are asking all the wrong questions. And if I say it to anybody, I'm-I'm ostracized. I'm-I'm-I'm a leper. So that's why I'm-I'm cagey about this with you. If you want full disclosure, I think it might be a good thing if teams got Messi's and Ronaldo's off their payroll. I think it would up all kinds of interesting possibilities.

What pity! He doesn't get a place. Not even on the UNDERRATED list.
He's won virtually everything there is for him to win, he's on pace to break the world cup scoring record. And not to forget, he's only 25
Simply, because he's not player of real madrid or Barcelona.V6 Comments
He knows what he's doing on the field. The real boss, but never appreciated
Xabi alonso is one of those players who doesn't have flashy tricks or skills therefore his highlight reels on YouTube do not do justice to his ture talent
but it cannot be denied how great of a player like him is overlooked
14 Goals in Three World Cups, amazing international scorer. Played amazingly for bremen, a little of a goal drought in bayern but it is much harder to score in the bundesliga than the la liga
Klose is one of the best German players ever. I just son;t know why people overlook him when he has so much applauds under his belt. He helped Germany tremendously in the 2010 World Cups and scored tons of goals! I heard that he is retiring after World Cup of 2014. Football will lose one of its unsung heroes
OH YEAH The Germans are coming and Miroslav Klose is an amazing finisher of the ball this doesn't mean I think he was the best player in the world but he was once and 14 FIFA World Cup goals
One of the best of all time! Should be #1.V7 Comments
Greatest holding midfielder of all-time. When Real sold him and Cambiasso they started losing, when Chelsea got him they started winning. He's without a doubt for me the most underrated player of all-time.
Makelele is a power horse who is a managers dream. For this he is completely underrated as he is a god for the managers
he is the battery of any team he plays with.
What an amazing Dribbler he is.. ! He goes around Defenders like 'playing around the park'.. ! - NandzzV2 Comments
Such stamina his shots just scare you he is bayerns engine along with lahm
Hellish very very underrated player seen him in la liga a rock probably better than matic
He doesn't score goals, he doesn't make headlines, but he is the most important player for Barcalona. Without him they wouldn't have a defensive player in the midfield. They wouldn't have someone to do the dirty work or just get the job done.
Best cam ever Lahm is 2nd I reckon
One of the most underrated dolphins ever!V3 Comments
Ronaldo is one of the best player ever, aliongside Zidane, Ronaldinho, Pele, Maradona.
47 Goals in 49 Games during one season in Barcelona explains it.
Top scorer in the world cup and la liga serie a and so on. Best EVER!
Best ever in my opinion, imagine how much more he could have achieved if he didn't get injured!
Most says maradona or pele, now Messi or cristiano... Ronaldo is the best. End of conversation.
Best Strike of the Ball in 40 YearsV10 Comments
The best Iranian player"no questions",and one of the few talent in Middle East has the chance to play in Europe.
The best player number 10 in the world
116 National Goals! More than Ronaldo and Messi!
He is the best oneV4 Comments
Best all round team player. Works like hell. I don't like Manchester United but out of all the football players I would have this guy in my team. - tenthsage
Best Korean player of all time. Legend. You can actually compare him to extreme players such as Muller.
Fantastic reader of fast play and position,
He's Asian so I like himV2 Comments
At his best he is lethal in front of goal, powerful shot, a great presence and consistent performance for his country, makes football look like a game rather than a war.
Unbelievable fast, great at 1-touch passing and has a powerful shot, podolski is one of the most feared strikers in the gamee. Can almost shoot from anywhere
He is. One. Great. Player. Of all. The. Time
He is great when on formV4 Comments
When anyone talks about mid-fielders they talk about Xavi, Iniesta, Lampard etc. but Pirlo is one of the most imaginative, opportunistic mid-fielder I've ever seen. His passing skills are brilliant - AnkurTri
His vision to pick up a player through a long ball was incredible, his passing in the midfield was terrific but coming from the era of zidane, figo, xavi he remains one the most underrated midfeilder in the world.V3 Comments
He's the best passer of his time, only one who can have perfect accuracy with back heels no matter the situation. He was my first "Soccer GOD"
If he had joined a big club he would be one of the top 5 ever
Pinpoint shooting and passing it doesn't get better than his
Pure class. And great career.V2 Comments
He should be the MVP in the world cup, he deserved more than Messi who only made a couple of good play and versus weak teams. - Juniorxtrm
Mascherano is one of soccers greatest defenders ever and should be rated highter
Messi definitely performed way better int the World Cup than mascherano
He doesn't get played enough. He's fantastic on the ball, he's so quick, and he's always in the right place at the right time. It's just unbelievable how some people think he's bad.
Just look at his goal/minute ratio in England, Spain and Germany, and look at his price compared to other forwards who aren't remotely close. It baffles the mind- and the 'all he contributes is goals' thing is bunk. His pass rate is above 80%.
The whole Mexican National Soccer team is underrated.
Little saying more doingV6 Comments
I don't state that Andriy is unbeatable player but he is very underrated. I like his style of play. He could be a very big football player. I think.
Truly underrated and overlooked - Alexandr
Very underrated. He get bad luck at chelsea, the way chelsea play not suitable for him and people think he not a good player.
Truly is a great player. Without him Ukraine would not be too good.
Can turn a game aroundV3 Comments
Only because he stayed at Southampton - wolphertV1 Comment
