Best Soccer (Football) Players of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
Let's be honest, if he were Brazilian, Argentinian, or German, he'd be in the top 10 or 15 at least. If not, name another player who even comes close to scoring such beautiful and difficult goals at the same time. Keeping in mind that most of them were not a one time lucky shots. And for those who say "well all those pichichis were won because he was an opportunist or because he just parked in front of the goal" if it's that easy why isn't any other player (in la liga) doing it every other year. I'm not putting him in the same level as pele or maradona, but come on lets give the guy credit where credit is due.
By fare, one of the best soccer players I have seen played. The footage of his goals are stunning, to say the leas. It is hard to argue what he achieved in Spain. The results speak for themselves. His acomplishmenst speaks volumes as to what kind of player he was. This is an wasome list of player. But with all due respect to them, not many players in the Spanish league (or on this list) come close to what he has achieved. An absolute underrated player. Stats don't lie or have bias. I am afraid some of these great players that are placed before him on this list will never get close.
Hands down one of the technically superior players to ever play the game. Had he been from any other country he would surely be in the top 10 I guarantee it. Simply beautiful to watch.

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
Come on guys. how bobby Charlton can be number 64. he won the world cup 1966. and he is the best england player ever.V 2 Comments
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!
He should be top 20 this list is messed upV 15 Comments
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
If we are talking about footballers who carry the team in which they play, you can never forget to mention the name Andrea Pirlo, arguably the best deep-lying playmaker ever to play the game, AC Milan of Carlo Ancelotti and Italy of Marcello Lippi with this of Prandely, all are built aroud Pirlo, very few players have been pivot like he does! The boy should occupy the higher echelon in any rankings of the soccer masters!
Pirlo Is The Most Awesome Player
I just don't understand. Pirlo deserve a much higher spot. He's just awesome.
He is a 1000 times better then 2nd ranked RonaldoV 1 Comment
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.
44? he should be at least top 30V 7 Comments
The best player of Italy... His freekicks are amazing. His passes are accurate. A goal scoring machine. Great dribbler and has capacity to destroy any defender... Should be in top 10
The best striker
Ronaldo is nothing compared to him
Totti should always be thought as a legend he made roma as one of the best teams in the world, he is always loyal to his team and would always fight for the win. I believe he should be one of the best players ever lived, NO TOTTI NO PARTY
Francesco totti is the best Italian football ever with great skill and charismatic person
The reason I started loving footballV 34 Comments

Surely the best striker and one of the best players ever. Football is not only dribles.
RAUL 7 RUUUUUUUUUUUUULES. - i-love-rock-n-roll
Playing with very simple skill ability, but always creating a lot of beautiful goal... Fabulous. One of the best striker in the world. SIMPLICITY and MAJESTIC
Surely the best striker and of the best players ever. Football is not only dribbling football is score game and Raul the best scorer ever.
The Spanish legend was the most iconic Striker/offensive Midfielder in the Mighty Real Madrid of the late 90's and the early 2000's nominated more than once for the best striker in UEFA Champions League and won 3 CL...V 13 Comments

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.
Certainly his not among the 10 greatest but I think he deserves some more credit and should be in a beter position on this list. This guy change the vision of African football and the what africans look at the beautiful game today. Coming from Cameroon he rose to be among the best in the world. I think courage and the achievement at the time demonstrates the talent and potential of Samuel eto. The lion the best. We love EtooV 14 Comments
He has helped arsenal so much rember the goal against sunderland and aston villa and also the pass he gave during world cup finals
no doubt he is the great ball passer of all time. Give him the ball and you are ready to score.
He is now the best player of his age and good looks too
He is a very good player. I will always support himV 6 Comments
He truely is the best french player ever
he turned united from a great team to one wanted for breach of competition laws for monopolising the premeirship
Eric Cantona will always be a Manchester united legend. Cantona will be remembered for decades to come. Eric Cantona will forever be known as the king.
There is only one kingV 5 Comments
Frank lampard is the only midfielder who scored the most goals ever in English football.
one of the best mid player I have seen is really pleasing to watch him play
Lampard at present is arguably the best midfielder in English football.. He has it all he can score from long distance
+ he can also put in those lovely passes for the strikers to score..
Man he is no.56 WHY?
What he did for his club is remarkable but he was little unfortunate in international matches
Luis figo is a jack of all trades, if the ranking was up to me I would reserve the first place for him. People tend not to think about how well rounded a player is, but they just focus on the top ten players in any factor. Well let me tell you something, luis figo is not number 1 in any factor, yet he is from the top player in every factor. Luis figo is memorable in shooting, dribbling, assisting, physical abilities, dedication, endurance, stamina, opportunity seeker, respected, and most of all, a winner. This list can go on till words are no longer describing a human, it will be describing a legend. The reason why words can't describe such a player is because, luis figo is a legend, and if he is not a legend, who is?
He has the greatest class of any player, with his trademark curl, he is Portugal's greatest asset.
one of the best portugal has offered and one of the best the world has seen - PR1MET1ME101
The best Portuguese player ever! Sure Cristiano Ronaldo is a very good play but Figo is so much more clever and he has class!V 4 Comments

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
Why is he in number 60. He is bettER than this. He should be in the top 25.V 28 Comments
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...V 1 Comment
