Best Left Footed Soccer (Football) Players of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Diego Maradona Diego Armando Maradona is a retired Argentine professional footballer. He is known for "The Goal of the Century" and the "Hand of God" goal.

Messi is number 1 because he doesn't handball it in like diego maradona

Way better than messi, just does not get the recognition he deserves because he was not the VERY BEST of his time, Pele was. He deserves the #1 spot, easily. messi is good, but maradona is better.

Easy choice, magical left...

He is a wizard

2 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Wow. Any thing he does is for a reason. His game is magical and remarkable and his style of play us leagues above ant other. He has everything needed to make a remarkable player.

Imagine having the best playmaker, most divine dribbler and deadliest goalscorer, all in one player. So very simple (in my opinion). There has never been a player like MESSI... ever. There has never been someone who moves like him, who strides like him, who touches the ball like him. He is the best player ever. He has almost every record known to football. He has done things no one could even imagine.. The undisputed GOD of football of all times.

Lionel Messi king of soccer
