42 Jaap Stam

Stam was a big defender


As far bad big, imposing centre backs go, you'd struggle to find one better than Stam.
He was actually pretty good on the ball, too, as we saw when he played dull back for Lazio.

74th really?
I'm an Arsenal fan yet I rate Stam as the best CB iv seen.
Best all round, was as fast as he was strong and don't forget merciless in the tackle.

43 Edgar Davids

The perfect defensive midfielder. Tackling, dribbling, passing, speed, shooting, strength and loads of tenacity. I "The Pitbull" was a phenomenal footballer. One of my favourite players of all time

Got a unique look and unique style of play

47 Dida
48 Luca Toni


49 Rafael Marquez

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

50 Rui Costa

Way better player than Riquelme, Rivaldo, etc. Deserves more recognition.

51 Lilian Thuram
52 Mesut Ozil Mesut 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?
