Best Soccer (Football) Players of All Time
The Top Ten
he was just, just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G I don't know nobody else playing football like that. Have you seen his dribbles?
Messi will be always compare with Ronaldo or anyone he loses because of his height he is 5.6 but maradona is shorter than Messi he is only 5.5
He should be be number 1. He took on the team of England all on his own in 1986 and made the most spectacular play I have ever seen La Mano De Dios, whoever put him in the 4 rank are terribly wrong. Watch La Mano De Dios on Youtube then tell me what you think of him. Maradona is simply the best in soccer history!
Why the hell he is in number 4... Come on people cheer up. Vote for the legend... THE GREATEST football magician...
Maradona truly is on his own level of skill. People may argue that he wasn't a complete well rounded player like pele or cristiano ronaldo, but soccer is a sport that is more than just speed and strength this isn't track in field. What makes maradona so amazing is that no one else on the world can do what he can with a soccer ball. What zidane could do with a ball maradona could do with an orange. His mastery of the ball makes him the greatest soccer player of all time not only could he dribble past cristiano ronaldo or anyone else with disturbing ease but he could also distribute the ball with pinpoint accuracy. This means that not only could he carry a team on his back (unlike messi sadly) but he also makes his teammates play better he is a player that you cannot leave on the bench even injured. If you gave maradona's left leg to any player they would instantly get on this list.
No one is nowhere near him...
Greatest player to play football...
He is the B E S T...
And he plays as someone play on a x-box or PlayStation
Go Messi go
Out of word to say
Best player ever better than cristiano he is amazing wonderful spectacular incredible crazy unbeatable
He is both a goal and assist machine. He can shoot and he can also dominate the midfield. - joshsanz
He can dribble a whole team he is like a Maradona except he is younger. He is a player no one can defend he is to good and he's got around 99.99% that he is gonna score when he gets inside the box. For me I think Lionel Messi is the best player in history because of his talent as dribbling, shooting, and passing even though I think Iniesta is the best at creating plays and passing in the world but Messi is the best of a scorer in my life he did more goals than pele in one year and pele was like 10 years older. He also passed Gerd Muller and scored 91 goals! Some people may think Cristiano Ronaldo is a better player but Cristiano is a show off and when real madrid loses he blames it on his team mates. Second off all Cristiano is only good at powerful kicks nothing else, maybe a little bit with dribbling. Third off all I do not think he is better than Messi because he is two years older than him in two year Messi could score up to 700 goals. Also Cristiano is 6 ft. 1 inch. Messi is 5 ...more
I think the best footballer of soccer is pele. He is the could be said as the king of football he is the number 1 player in the world of football. His shots are marvelous shots in the world. There is no way to defeat him
He's the best that ever played. He moved like a jungle cat. No one had ever seen anyone play like that before. His skill at full speed was mezmorizing. His passing was as precise as a surgeon's scalpal, un-locking opposing defenses. Look at what the Brazilians did to Italy in the 1970 World Cup. That wasn't TFC out there, that was the 1968 defending European Champions Brazil were playing. Italy's defense was known to stifle the opposition. Pele cut them open at will. Pele changed the way the game was played. Players today, that people fawn over because of their skill, Pele did 60 years ago. He did it before big contracts, endorsements and personal trainers. Most importantly, he showed up and performed at major tournaments. Ronaldo and Messi can't hold a candle to Pele. Simply put, Pele is a winner, the greatest of all time
Pele is the world's greatest his skills are unbelievable his passion for football got him to the top
There is no words to describe him. Top bloke and legend of the game.
Come on! He has the sweetest shot in the world and well does about everything! I mean, can messi ever jump over 6'3 defenders and send a powerful header? Can the likes of di stefano, pele etc. Score goals like he does and still have the rest of his attributes? The answer is... No
You know I've noticed in these comments that when talking about Cristiano Ronaldo they always compare him with Messi, but when talking about Messi he doesn't need to be compared with anyone to show how great he is.
He is the perfect player, A complete package who can dribble, juggle, freekick, deadly crosses, long range efforts, never ending stamina, great accuracy with both feet, serious pace, his height which he can achieve when he jumps for the ball, perfect body shape, unforgettable free kicks and last but not the least he is from Portugal and unarguably he is the player they have ever produced and might not produce same again, his country of origin is not that famous as for pele, maradona, messi, ronaldhino and zidane but still he is now among them which means his will and hunger for goals and win is greater then any of em! I love his style!
I think the best football player is Cristiano Ronaldo. His transfer is the most expensive, he can jump, dribble and his free kick is magnificent. The PERFECT PLAYER.
Please people, let me hope that every one is sober while reading this.
Look at His height, body size, soccer skills, a complete dribbler, free kick specialist, pace, goals scored in different best football league tables in the generation with very many fantastic players.
He really brings out the real meaning of the best football player the world has ever tested.
Remember that to be considered as the best, you must fit and score in different soccer league tables and by this I mean the rough, hard, talented and best ones like English premier league and spanish laliga plus putting up stiff competition with the rest of the players in the whole world of that particular generation not forgetting to again deliver at the National team level.
Messi is only good but not better than Christiano Ronaldo because Messi has only seen one league and has not delivered at the national level
I have seen god... He played for France with no 10 jersey...
Zidane has done very well in his moment and he left with his skills
He lost none of his skill when he left so I believe he was one of the best
football(soccer) player in the history
zidane is not only the greatest football(soccer) player of all time but also the greatest athlete/sportsperson of all time!
Zidane is in a class by himself, he is the most elegant player ever, whenever he is playing you do not want to take your eyes off him because you don't want to miss a magical move or a ball control never seen before. Zidane makes the game look beautiful with his artistic style of play. Zidane did things with his weaker foot most world class players of the past and present cannot do. The man was a football god sent to show us the true beauty of the sport.
Many people here don't know anything of football..
Leo Messi is not as good as Zico.
Cristiano Ronaldo & Ronaldo is not as good as Maradona.
And nobody I repeat NOBODY is as good as Cruyff was.
Simply the best ever..
He won and he lost but the leader of the so called total football was incredibly skillful and could play upfront or in midfield. - OLESATTHEWHEEL
Do you guys even know how Johan Cruyff helped Ajax as a player and to Barca as both the best player they had and best manager in the history of football. You can ask anyone who watched Johan Cruyff played and a bet NONE OF THEM think he's not the best in history
Cruyff is the greatest player ever, he revolutionized football, he organized his team, he timed passes perfectly like nobody else did, he read the game better and faster than anybody else in history, he was an underrated long range shooter, if he wanted to he could be a legendary scorer like his younger days, but he opted to be unselfish, the best passer in football history, and the total footballer. #14
TRUE KING, some players are best in striking... Some are best in passing... Some are best in speed... Ronaldo is best in everything! And that's not all... His will of playing was amazing... After such a awful injury he became worlds number 1
Ronaldo is the greatest striker ever played football with that speed an skill he's the best ever may I call him the phenomenon, the king, the number 9, the best ever ronaldo
No one else can do what Ronaldo did.
Absolutely the BEST SOCCER PLAYER OF ALL TIME IS RONALDO = THE KING
I can't forget the 2002 FIFA WORLD CUP that he played. Actually he didn't play, he mesmerized all people of the WORLD.
I just pray GOD, because he gave me the chance of seeing his carrier.
He might not be the greatest but he will remain the best player in history with the best technical ability like dribbling, skills and tricks efficiency(ahead of Ronaldinho), pace, shooting and even passing(surprisingly good for a centre forward). I've seen many players in the past like Pele, Cruyff, Maradona, Di Stefano, Zico, Ronaldinho, George Best, Denis Law, George Weah, Michael Platini, Beckenbauer, Figo, Eusebio, Kaka, Rivaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and so I can call them one of the greatest and they're certainly in the best list as well but the one that tops the best list is just Ronaldo and none else. If Ronaldo had won the European Champions League he would of certainly been the greatest ever.. Please don't even compare anyone with Ronaldo.. He's beyond comparison..
RONALDINHO... NIGHTMARE OF ANY DEFENDER
Perfect tricks, speed and precision... Shame he had to leave FCB
He has the best technique ever. No one could do such tricks
He is unarguably the best player I have ever Seen. His dribbling abilities are mesmerizing his passes and free kicks are awesome, but most important of all,... He is a team player unlike C. Ronaldo... I simply love him...
Ronaldinho is the complete football player, sure Cristiano Ronaldo can jump higher, run faster, etc. I'm not saying Ronaldo and Messi or anyone else are bad, they just aren't Ronaldinho. In fact, Messi is probably most efficient on the field, Cristiano Ronaldo has the overall top attributes. But when do you EVER see anyone smile like Ronaldinho when he falls, when he scores, when he misses, etc. He has fun and he shows that. Never have I seen anyone manipulate a football like Ronaldinho. I can do around the world, so can half the footballing world I bet, but the way the ball is like part of Ronaldinho's body makes it look elegant, super easy. This is just one opinion though, it was a tough choice because there are great footballers out there today, many of them. Ronaldinho, Messi and Cristiano remain my favorites.
Der Kaiser was the ultimate leader and led Germany through the world cup. - OLESATTHEWHEEL
You are right! But to reduce the Kaiser to a DEFENDER is a huge mistake, fail, blasphemy. He was one of the best players ever technically!
A good team needs a good defense, and for that reason Beckenbauer is the greatest ever. You can go on about the likes of Messi, Kaka & Christiano Ronaldo but none of them could have got past the Kaiser
nobody can get passed him when he is defending! one of the greatest defenders of all time!
Dubbed as the emperor because of his unmatched defending skills. - joshsanz
The best free kicker this world has ever seen and will never see like this
He is the Free kick GOD THE LEGEND David BECKHAM THE BEST...
A truly magical player, always made a difference in an england shirt which was really important to him. Absolute legend, best crosser and free kick taker the game has ever seen... Laugh out loud at those who consider Cristiano Ronaldo to be in the top 10 you obviously don't watch football.
He is the best ever. There's no doubt that he's not that good in dribbling, but he knows where he's good at.. Freekicks, assists, etc.. Especially freekick.. No one like him ever...
David Beckham is my idol. He literally does everything a soccer player could do. David beckham is probably the greatest soccer player ever would ever step foot on this earth. I would watch a thousand games of David Beckham. Besides a lot of people look up to Beckham as their idol. For example in the movie "Bend It Like Beckham" pretty much every character looks up to Beckham as their idol or hero. He just inspires so many people that it is unbelievable. He has so much talent and potential that people just love him. It is probably a honor for The LA galaxy coach to have a very talented player on his team. Beckham's parents are so blessed to have a child like Beckham. There is nothing bad to say about Beckham because he is a hero in my eyes and he inspires me.
What is this guy doin here? Rooney, Owen, Gerrard above Di Stefano?
U gotta be kidding me... should be in the top 3 at least if not at the top.. Ppl not aware of Di Stefano should just take a look at his Wikipedia page.. dis guy has won EVERYTHING.. definitely better than Cristiano who is at no.2
The greatest player of all time. Though nominally a striker, Di Stéfano had the tackling, shooting, passing and dribbling ability and (most importantly) endurance to be able to play quite literally all over the field, and excel in all facets of the game, and it is this all-around brilliance that made him the best. He is one of only 8 players to have won multiple Ballons d'Or, and was recently declared by Pelé to be the greatest ever. - Blueyays
He has won basically everything and as a striker was invincable. - OLESATTHEWHEEL
One of the first and most complete "PLAY-MAKER" of football ever seen.
What a joke to see young people put Beckham, Xavi, or Rooney here - all 3 were combined are not even equal to Di Stefano in effectiveness from midfield to attack!
Awesome... This kid will not go the extra mile but the extra trillion miles. I hope he stays focused. His country men: Ronaldinho, after Pele, are my past favourites.. Next is Messi, but I hope to be right with this future pick!
Another year, another cluster of near moves for Neymar.
The constant speculation linking him to Real Madrid and Barcelona often takes away from what a fantastic year he's had, scoring 31 goals and providing 15 assists back in Brazilian football for Santos.
He had a solid London 2012 Olympics during the summer, scoring some great goals and grabbing a silver medal. - dahamid364
Growing experience in Brazil endows the talented boy with overflowing enthusiasm, which is in a class by oneself in the whole world. He is almost the last samba player. His unique ability in the football field is simply appealing.
See the future when he start to be one! And one of the best Brazilian player! I believe to his skill and kick messi's ass off
Pele himself once claimed that George best is better than him, what is wrong with you people George best was the first football superstar and he was awarded player of the year in 1968. People who saw him play claimed that he was certainly a legend after his death in 2005 people forgot of this legend who deserves to be in the top 5, people who've not seen him play can check his videos on YouTube and also read his famous quotes. I hope my comment helps you recognize a true legend.
Maradona good, pele better, George best
had the honour of watching Bestie play live. he was just unbelievable plain an simple
George Best should be number 1. What is wrong with you non George Best fans beside other manu fans who vote for a manu player.
Maradona good, Pele better, George best
George had it all, balance, vision and breath taking brilliance. He was magic. His swerving runs and pace took him past the best defenders in the world, he played for fun. During George's playing days, the winter pitches became mud baths but he could still pirouette and ghost from one penalty area to another. When he was in full flight he was a sight to behold. George Best is the best footballer ever to grace a football pitch.
I cannot believe he is not up here already, this player holds one of the most impressive highlight reels to date. Dribbling through what seems to be an entire team and promptly puts the ball in the net. Players like C. Ronaldo make many pretty moves, but do not put the ball in the net. This player does.
He is officially the best (not ever) I cannot believe he is only 35. He should be top 10. His goal when he played for Ajax is simply amazing. Plus he's Swedish. GO ZLATAN!
Ibrahimovic like no other
His moving his shoots his dribbles no one like him
He is 1.95 m height with unbelievable skills
Zlatan is only on this list because he is impresive and a showboater - Dandeman7
2nd best player ever also I'm mozambican so we are from the same place anyway he is one of the best players of all time
Laugh out loud, Eusebio 30th? Talk about people being ignorant and not knowing crap about soccer! He's Easily top 5 material, and only people who never seen him play could think otherwise!
Come on Beckham 12? Wake up idiots! WATCH SOME SOCCER!
LOOL di stefano 40? Should be top 10!
FIGO like 50 -. -, one of the best players I've EVER SEEN, amazing dribbles and crazy crosses, the man who was there for ronaldo and rivaldo and raul!
Eusebio was amazing.
How you guys have courage of talk about Sukur, Beckham...
are you loosing your mind...
One of the best players all time. In the top 20? Are you ignorant? Top 10 without any doubt.
A wonderful player with the ability to score in any situation. Puskas showed his ability not only with a great Real Madrid side but also with a Hungary side that was not considered the greatest. - OLESATTHEWHEEL
His powerfull kicks was also really presice as well! For example, on one game, he nailed a freekick, but the refere asked him to do it again. Puskas told to everyone that I'm gonna kick it exactly the same way! And so he did it and scored again! Well this days I'm watching lot a games but I've seen noone near to that confidence, precision and loveing to the game on the field! Ferenc Puskas rest in peace! Thank you!
Probably the no. 1 player of all time. Only Cruyff that can compete as the the number 1 with Puskas. Kids today don't have the knowledge of these players and only vote Ronaldo, Messi etc. Who isn't near either Cruyff or Puskas.
Because Puskas is utter class he scored 1000 goals way before Pele did and it shows just how good he is because he has a whole stadium named after him and actually had a brain and that showed through his game. Then again I am Hungarian, so. - robbie
I can't believe you guys, have you ever seen Garrincha playing football. Garrincha is one of the 10 best player in the world.
Just watch his highlight reels. A true legend.
Garrincha was a footbal artist, a player with an unique dribbling style which resembled a drunken man trying to walk. He's an underrated footballer, perhaps overshadowed by Pele, and he should be in the top ten list. It's definitely worth seeing his videos.
The God of soccer. He is mane Garrincha. His name should be laid sharing with Maradona, and Pele. He is the angel of football, art of dribbling.
He is the great madridian and brazilian hero as well as playmaker
um he's poetry in motion when he performs
He really should be number 2 after pele. People say ronaldinho but he doesn't have the right playing style or smarts to even be near number 1.
A man who was once, just a curious boy hypnotized by perfect harmony. And the man in the middle, the conductor. Who creates balance out of chaos, beauty from turmoil, elegance from disarray. No one really knows what happened that day, but he was never the same, and he never forgot the man in the middle. Now this boy has grown up and he is as elegant with the ball as the conductor with his baton. A pure player, born from the twin mothers of intelligence and creativity. With feet that tethered to the pitch like strings on a violin. A master of control. A roaming midfielder, with an instinctive feel for the ball. Who advances man like a conductor moves music, orchestrating the game with just the right rhythm and tempo. Creating something out of nothing, with just a look and a perfect one-touch pass. Ending the match with a crescendo and a bow. Every team needs the maestro. - Adidas, The ultimate search.
He is a coach of Fenerbahce...
Fenerbahce was played quarter final match with Chelsea in CL.
Fenerbahce will be most valuable football club with Arthur ZCO
WE LOVE WHITE PELE 'ZCO' - MAWENSY
Deadly long range shots with machine precision combined with all other football skills to the mastery level.
His name alone goes with the other single-name greats like Pele, Ronaldo and Gherson.
The most UNDERRATED player of all time!
Zico was among the very best "playmaker" of all time (definitely TOP10)
Zico was the closest (in style and skills) to Pele (two footed and skills) = like Messi is closer to Maradona (left foot and skills)
This is the best goalkeeper to have lived on Earth. He is the only goalkeeper to have won a Ballon D'Or, and will probably will be the only one. He has made some unbelievable saves and I just don't know why he has always been underrated or even unknown to the general football fans. - radrichiie
Rated 94 for being the great goalie who could save tons of shots most goalies couldn't and just flat out being the best goalie of all time.
Best keeper ever with George Banks, Iker Casillas and Buffon. - FrankP
Very underrated. He made the goalkeeping position important. He's the reason anyone even cares about Casillas and Buffon.
Three times European Player of the Year.
Over 40 goals for his country from midfield.
Highest scorer in Serie A 3 years running.
One of the greatest passers of the ball in history.
Highest goal scorer in European Championship history.
I rest my case.
A real complete player: scorer, passer, very good personal technique, sense of timing, extraordinary vision of the game, very good teammate (make his partners play better), a winning mentality, respectful to others, regulars performances, and so on...
This greatest footballer remind me about best times of football.
His free kicks had the highest conersion to goal rate I have seen
Did you see that bicycle kick with the assist by NANI. Rooney should be up there a lot higher. But he is still young with a bright future.
Wayne rooney is without a doubt at least third on this list he is an engine and deserves to be up with the top footballers
Wayne rooney is the best soccer he have best skill run fast
Wayne Rooney has undergone some borderline surgical changes to his game over the past 12 months, but he's coped extremely well.
A poor European Championships (again) firmly behind him, he's adapted to the presence of Robin van Persie superbly and reinstated goals to his game over the past month.
He was the Red Devils' top scorer last season, reliably turning in 27 English Premier League strikes. - dahamid364
Robin Van Persie The Best Striker and Winger ever, Good technical, good shoot, and the left foot number one in the World, just stay in Arsenal and Gunners. Come on Van Persie you can do that. I trust you.
In one of the only years Robin van Persie's ankle hasn't given way, it's no surprise to see him turn in consistently excellent performances that place him among the best in the world. Coming off a 30-goal season at Arsenal and a £22 million move to Manchester United, expectations were so high the Dutchman could have crumbled. - dahamid364
Van Persie has great skill he can take shots from distance and he is wonderful on volleys
Had a great career only cut short by injury which made man Utd fell out of favor with him. If it weren't for his knee and ankle he would still bang 15 every season
The best striker to ever live! If you don't believe this then you don't know real football!
whoever voted for anyone else never watched an arsenal game before 2007 - arsenal193
best goalscorer of Arsenal and France and best striker of all time with Brazilian Ronaldo...
Legendary! Record goalscorer for Arsenal and France, Won the World Cup, European Championships, Premier League, FA Cup, La Liga, Champions League & Copa Del Rey.
In his prime he could dribble past 6 or 7 defenders in the middle of the park and go on to score a goal. I'm not even exaggerating!
Electric pace, Strength, Sublime finishing, Intelligence,... He had it all. Shame he never won the Ballon D'Or.
Obviously Iniesta is in the Top 100 footballers of all time.
Andres is going to be the best footballer in the next 10 years
Or so. No one will ever beat Andres the beast Iniesta in the next 10 years! Iniesta should be the 11th best of all time. Againist Italy in Group Stages of Euro 2012, he made Gianluigi Buffon (the best goalkeeper for the last decade or so)jump like a frog. Iniesta is small, but he can get through footballers(Peter Crouch or Nikola Zigic)who are about 1 foot and a quarter taller than him. Iniesta has helped Spain for a long time and all matches with Spain, Rain or Shine, Iniesta would always play in the 1st team. In the 2010 World Cup, Iniesta helped Spain with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands in the Final. Fabregas set Iniesta up and Iniesta scored the only goal in the match. Iniesta is the best Attacking Midfielder in the
World, By a long, long, long way.
He captains the best soccer club in the world right now. He scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final. He is the best visionary to play the sport and creates so many opportunities with impeccable passes. Even though he is aging, Iniesta was named the best player at the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final. What else do you want from him? He is easily the best midfielder right now. He has been among the top nominees for the Ballon D'or in recent years and deserves at least one to his name.
It's impossible steal the ball to him.
The insane skill player who is ale crowds out by many players has a great flexibility and guts and neck to get through all of the challenges without losing the ball..
great player, best shooter and responsible for the greatest goal of all time
The Best Free Kick In The History Of Soccer. Better Than Beckham.
The best left foot in football history
Roberto Carlos should be in the top 10. Who came up with this list. Who ever it is, you have no sense about football
the young Welshman has got the best finishing for a left footer
he powers up and down the left wing -
One of the best Welsh players of all time he should be at least top ten
HE WILL BE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD SOON
Welsh Wizard, Magic Man, Simply amazing player for Spurs he is the best no.11 we have ever seen!
Deadly combination of speed and skill, though he has not set records, technically he is better than almost all of the people above - garethbale
This amazing player should be higher then 45 - FrankP
He is a Goalkeeper. The Best goalkeeper.
This list has problem how are Gianluigi Buffon, Iker Casillas and Thiery Henry not in top ten - FrankP
Buffon is the best goal keeper ever!
Very very very good player
He is king of the playmaker in the world.
His just the best ever... Mad about him
He is the best midfielder nowadays and he is a world champion with Spain
;] he should win a golden ball
Never ever heard of Ali Karimi... He can't possibly be better than Xavi. Not all time, but he is easily top 3 best players of his generation. El Maestro!
Survived a terrible plane disaster but still came back to be one of the greatest players of all time. This guy should be top 10 no doubt
The best English player of the post war era both for England and in a magnificent Manchester United team. - Spursfred
May not be the number 1 best, but is a a inspiration most definitely top 10
Only 42nd what a joke
he has got a sweet left foot
he is an ace at volleying -
How can people forget this outstanding footballer, he did amazing in the 2014 World Cup, with 6 goals, 5 assists. Robben should be on the top ten, and yah, also I forgot, ROBBEN WON THE TITLE FOR BAYERN
Possibly the best left foot of all times, to be so consistent in cutting inside with curving shots and general key passing and shooting with that foot. Combine that with extremely good dribbling and speed. Surely at least a top10 player! Netherlands played 5-3-2 on the WC in 2014, he made it look 5-3-3 he had that much impact.
This player is just amazing, he has it all, he has the speed, the skill, and the heart, Robben should be in the top 10
steven gerrard is the best football player I have ever seen. zidane is very good, ronaldinho, ronaldo, messi, rooney,.. but gerrard is really the best. he plays with heart and his is leader who motivates all other players. his shot is so powerful and accurate, his passes just stand and watch it, he is very good in defense also also in attack, he has also very good dribble skills. SIMPLY THE BEST!
The best football player with good manners and full power!
Liverpool is lucky to have him. Royalty, Loyalty, Totality, his life is for Football and of course in Liverpool FC!
hey guys Gerrard is without doubt the most successful soccer player in the world.. he has unmatched talent, enthusiasm, history, achievement, determination.. Go for him instead of Rolando
He is the no. Resign for winning the champions league 2005
You can see the experience he gave to xabi Alonso & mascerano & Raul merelis & much more players
He is the capitano of the anfild
He is the ultimate midfielder in the world
He is one of the legends of the primer league
He should be top 3 and he is the best foreign premier league player of all history and he loves seeing boys in bras plus best dutch player ever in england
he's skills and he's goal are superb
Scored the best goal ever against newcastle how is he only 37th he should be top 5.
The Iceman - Dennis was cool but had a ruthless streak. Watching Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry play together at Arsenal was truly amazing. Undoubtedly my favourite player of all time.
I am sure most of those voting here are far to young to remember the Gentle Giant who was equally at home at centre half and centre forward. Never booked throughout his career. Played for Wales in the 1958 World Cup, won 3 Championships and 2 Italian Cups in his 4 years at Juventus. He played long before todays wall-to-wall T.V. coverage. Had he been playing today, he would be near the top of the list.
The best leeds united player ever and probably 3rd best player in the world only since sir stan
He should be in the top 10.
The best centre back and striker the world has seen. unbelieveable talent. 44 goals for leeds in 1st div, and 3 titles for juventus! never booked. could play anywhere!
I'm not even surprised he is in the top ten definitely AT LEAST #1 or#2
Mesut Ozil was a little patchy for Real Madrid toward the end of last season, but has cleaned up his act considerably over the last few months.
He's back scoring important goals for Los Merengues at pivotal moments, and of course, he still remains the No. 1 provider to Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of assists.
He was one of the better performers at Euro 2012 for Germany. - dahamid364
The best player in bundesliga, and he is young as well! I can't believe he wasn't on the list. Search his name on youtube and you will understand...
He should be in the top 30, at least!
Best Maestro ever, deserves more than Arsenal
The most decorated british player the world will ever see, ryan giggs is an inspiration
He plays at the same level for now 20 years! And no end in sight :-)
Brilliant skills with fantastic insight... sets up many other players and goal situations...
He is the best ever he is way better than maradona and pele sad that people don't appreciated what he did
The new Kop hero Luis Suarez is really a sensational talent. He is a curse for opposition defenders and produces sensational magic in the pitch. He deserved to be best player in Copa America. - Newuser
He is just phenomenal! He filled Fernando Torres shoes very well. He got skills, scores many goals, creates chances for his team mates. And he does nutmegs, nutmegs, nutmegs.. Vote! Should at least be number 20!
How the hell is he below messi! Messi is terrible. he has to team up with all stars to win, suarez played in Liverpool with terrible teammates. he lead them to the finals. if suarez replaced Messi he would win every game! Messi is a cry baby, boohoo! He is jealous that he doesn't have SUAREZ POWER. nom
I reckon Luis Suarez should be in the 10 because he is a fantastic player and not only that he was the best stirker. When he was in Liverpool he was unstoppable he scored volleys and all types of fantastic goals and now he is at Barcelona and he is as good as he was when he was at Liverpool. Luis Suarez scores hatreds and hatreds in Barcelona.
The BEST defensive player ever. He is a Legend in the history of the European Football. No other player had, have and will ever have his skills in defending. I mean, look at his sliding tackle - just perfect!
greatest left back ever the face of Milan for the past 20 or so years -
Where to begin with this legend for a starter he is a 1 team player started and ended his career with Milan he won every single cup possible with them and a record of 5 times UCL winner nominated a lot in the team of the year reached the WC final in the 1994 and the semi final in the 1990 was in the dream team in both of them...
BEST DEFENDER BEST PLAYER GREATEST IN MY HEART (3)
the French international has tons of pace its unreal he completely humiliates defenders -
You need at least 4 guys to get possession from him.
62nd place if you don't vote for him, I will find you and I will kill you
Great player very fast and he should be 2
A real top top striker to ever grace football. His bicycle kicks, volleys and strikes were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, I don't think any other striker can do what Marco did, no doubt he was called San Marco. I've never seen anyone can do a spectacular volley from a tight angle in the Euro 88 final. It's a shame he has a lot of injuries and retired young from Milan.
Best ever! Marco had it all. Was a great passer of the bal as wel fast with the ball and his technics were just amazing! Remember euro 1988
Nr 1 in my book! Had all the qualities a forward should have!
Why is he so far down on this list? You guys don't know football!
The Best 1! I cryed when he gave up with soccer... I was the only soccer player can gave me emotions...
Definitely the best defender of all time. He was the captain of England when we won the world cup. He deserves to be top ten.
games are won in defence, not much got past him. when it did there was gordon banks.
a great player and a gentleman
hailed by pele as the best defender he has played against
Here lies the best defender of all time...at 89th. Really? That low! Defending is just as important as goal scoring!
He is the best goalkeeper I have ever seen
Greatest goalkeeper of all time
If de Gea is 336 or something and pretty much better than neuer than de Gea deserves some where around here
Who needs a net when all you need is him
He scored the best last minute goal of all time. Next year I'd like to see him in the top twenty at least
He's good, best player in England by far. Why was he not at least in the top 100.
Best player in the premier league by far. He should be around 8th or something
No way should he be this far down the list I'd like to see where he is next year!
The best midfield maestro to ever grace the pitch in my opinion. - OLESATTHEWHEEL
He is excellent the top scorer in barclays premier league
he is a powerhouse
he has so much skill and precision it is unreal -
He kills and he got the most goals for Chelsea in 2006. Better than all the other Africans. Go Ivory Coast.
He was the best Italian soccer player that ever lived - CaptCool
Probably the best Italian player of all the time. Should be in the top 10 at least. 29 it's just unacceptable. So much better than Totti, Del Piero etc..
Not only did he have the most amazing skills, he knew how to gain the love of the people and be considered as a true and complete soccer player and also a respectable person. Unfortunately you can't say the same about some of his coaches and that's why he's not given the right recognition. He's definitely the best Italian soccer player of the last 30 years and top 3 of all time.
SIMPLY THE BEST... IF THERE ARE OTHER Italian PLAYERS BEFORE HIM IN THIS LIST, IT MEANS THAT THIS LIST IS FALSE... SOLO ROBERTO BAGGIO
Scholes is without doubt the greatest English player of all time and should be in the top ten of this list!
He is the perfect player!
Best footballer ever. No one else can control a game like Paul Scholes. He is perfection.
Best all round player of all time... FACT
Paul at 77? You guys need to know history.
Eto' is to me the best striker in the history of football. Other people may say Ronaldo yes he made his name in the Brazilian national team especially during world cup. If Eto'o had this same opportunity to play I a team like Brazil with the worlds most talented players I believe he would have done even more than Ronaldo. The boy is a naturally born footballer. I say he is among the first 5 world best footballers ever.
Eto'o is the most useful player in the history of football reason being that he can score any how any where and any time. These other players made name because they were highly watched by people
Africa magic man. World's best striker. Put him in any
team of clao he will be the highest goals scorer for that season
He is better than all those strange names I see up there. His fire is still burning. Africa's best player 4 times. 4 champions leagues to his credit. Prolific goals scorer in La Liga. Highest goals scorer in CAN archives.
He is the most complete footballer that has ever played the beautiful game. He has an instinct for scoring. Eto'o's gift lies in his ability to perceive, understand and communicate about feelings and matters of the heart and soul.
NOT ONLY IS HE MEXICAN BUT HES GOOD. WHO WOULDN'T VOTE FOR HIM. HES ONLY PLAYED FOR LIKE 2-3 YEARS AND HES PLAYING REALLY WELL. HE HAS LIKE 50 GOALS ALREADY IN HIS CAREER. THAT IS AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE. WITH HIS FIRST GAME WITH MAN U. HE MADE A GOAL AGAINST THE MLS ALL-STARS. THAT'S WHY I PUT MY VOTE ON Javier 'CHICAHRITO' Hernandez!
he has scored the fastest goal against one of the best teams ever chelsea on the 36th second when he moved into man you and I'm a man you supporter and he has become the best player in the world - uzy
Chicharito should be in the top ten for sure. Right behind Messi and Kaka so people can actually see who has skills.
Why isn't he in the top 10 at least he has been on top form this year at united and look what he has done.. he got us to win the title by 2 amazing goals against stoke city and scoring against chelsea fc near the end of the season well he is my best player
Der Kaiser II was the only player who could kill the ball (WC '90 West Germany-Yugoslavia).
The stats speak for themselves. Even pele who I think is the best of all time was in awe if matthaus skills, vision got the game and durability. Pele has him as one if the best of all time.
One of the best play maker
The most capped player in Germany's history he participated in the team who won the 1980 Euro Cup... this man led Germany in the 1980's and most important part was the rivalry with Maradona in both Inter and Germany he lost to Maradona in 1986 but the 1990 WC named by his name won the Ballon D'or in the same year as he won the UEFA cup with Inter the year after and won the Scudetto the year before... his leadership skills are phenomenal as he played nearly in every single position in the field started as a playmaker then to what was called Libro...
