89 Nani

Nani at his best is a reflection of Ronaldo he is a mercurical dribbler a versatile and flexible winger has creativity and powerful shots he is a great player to watch and scores breathtaking goals. He is just marvelous. He is a man to watch out for.

91 Paul Scholes

Easily one of the greatest midfielders of his generation. You only have to look at the quotes about him from some of the greatest if all time to realise how special he was. If this list was voted on by professionals he'd probably be in the top 5 at least.

What? This list started off good, but once I saw scholes, figo and bergkamp not in the top 20 I knew something was wrong with this list...

What on earth, is the greatest midfielder doing here. Was this really voted by football fans.

He would be in my start 11 of the decade. And I'm not a Man. Utd fan... Underrated player.

95 Henrik 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

96 Clarence Seedorf
97 Alvaro Recoba
98 Rafinha

A really Underrated player. But is great.

99 John Terry John Terry V 1 Comment
100 David Beckham David 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.
