Pele is easily the greatest Athlete of all time, and defintely the best soccer player of the 20th century.

Enshrined the ethos of the 1967 Lisbon Lions. Celtic legend and under appreciated footballer.
Jinky on the wing was amazing,his dribbling was superb,the guy was special,he toyed with reall madrid at alfredo destefanos testimonial.only 2 weeks after winning the European cup wit celtic in 67,they won every tournament they entered tat year with a domestic treble same year.and the rest is istory
Pele was better through the 60s from what I know so overall the 70s is Cruyff for me
Should be number 1

Ranking Beckenbauer behind Best and especially Johnstone is disgraceful.
In his prime, he was the best defender in the world and at the same time one of the best midfielders. As one of the most complete players to ever grace the game, he combined speed, elegance, superb tacklings, powerful long shots and amazing passes.
He was known for being a smart tactician and his interpretation of the "sweeper" heavily influenced football.
When it comes to trophies, Beckenbauer cannot be forgotten: As a player, he led West Germany to a WC title in 1974 and an EC title in 1972. He won the Champions League 4 times (1974,75,76 and 83) and became German Champion 5 times. He was even determined as the 3rd best footballer of the 20th century by the FIFA in 2000, behind Pele and Cruyff, but in front of Maradona. He's clearly one of the greatest ever, only few players in the history of this sport can compare with his skills and fame. Nicknamed "The Emperor" (Der Kaiser) he established an era of ...more

Could easily play for the current Barcalona team
A brilliant goal scoring midfielder
European footballer of the year 1977
A quick, powerful winger, he was a member of the legendary Brazilian national team that won the 1970 FIFA World Cup, during which he scored in every game Brazil played. In doing so, he became one of only two players â€" the other being Alcides Ghiggia â€" in the history of the World Cup to have scored in every game of the tournament and was thereafter nicknamed as "The Hurricane"
One the best deffenders of all times.
P. S. There is a little mess in this list: Van Basten was a kid in the 70s,Messi wasn't even born(! ),there's no player named Fausto Rossi-it's Paolo and Diego Maradona was just starting his career (youth world champion with the National team). This decade belongs to Cruyff.
