23 Dennis Bergkamp Dennis Bergkamp Dennis Nicolaas Maria Bergkamp is a Dutch former professional footballer, who is the assistant manager to Frank de Boer at Ajax.

One of the all time greatest, but his name never appears high on a ranking.

One of the best

he is crap

24 Arjen Robben Arjen Robben Arjen Robben is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for German club Bayern Munich and is the captain of the Netherlands national team.

Always sidelined but when on field he's the best unlike Balon D'Or winners he plays great for club and country

Better than Messi or Ronaldo, but still not reconized better.

25 Thiery Henry

Sure he is very old now... But he is world class and is so composed yet brave, strong and intelligent on and off of the ball.

Lewandoski doesn't even have Torrey when it comes to scoring, he just shoots and sometimes doesn't even curve but goes in a straight line right in.
He in my opinion, will dominate the field when Robben and Ribery retire from the field, plus he is on the best team in Germany and one of the worlds best teams.

27 Alfredo Di Stefano
28 Henrik Larsson

Amazing player won Barcelona the champs league against arsenal and thiery henry said he didn't see ronaldinhio messi eto, o xavi he saw larsson he was the best player in that team

His stats say it all 53 goals in one season scored for Sweden man utd barca and celtic truly magical

One of the best,underrated because he played so long in Scotland,fergie tried to sign him for years and turned the champions league final for barca.

29 Andy Cole

Was never truly given the credit he deserves for his outstanding goalscoring record. -

30 Roy Makaay

Honestly think Michael carrick should also be on this list.. He is the engine of manchester united, and his crucial passes made the difference in the 2012/2013 season.

31 Rui Costa

He made other players famous with his ability to serve them the ball like no other from anywhere in the field
Like batistuta... Sheveshenko... Etc

32 Samuel Eto'o Samuel Eto'o Samuel Eto'o Fils is a Cameroonian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Turkish club Antalyaspor.

He could have been better than Messi but he was under rated

33 Cafu

One of the best defenders ever. Overshadowed by the likes of Pele and Co.

34 Nani
35 Wayne Rooney Wayne Rooney Wayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

A true talisman of English football history, don't ask me...ask Messi, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic etc, etc. People hate him because they are jealous that he played for Man United and not their club. Apart from Ronaldo Scholes and Giggs Man united have never had enough world class support for him and he's still destroyed all records.

36 Robin Van Persie Robin Van Persie Dutch footballer from Rotterdam born on August 6 1983. Currently plays for the Turkish club Fenerbahçe S.K and The Netherlands national football team as the number 11. Robin Van Persie is known for playing for Arsenal and Manchester United, though his most notable goal was his header against Spain more.

he is not gettin d applause as he should... -

37 Edgar Manucharyan
38 Paolo Maldini Paolo Maldini Paolo Cesare Maldini is a former Italian professional footballer who played as a left back and central defender. Maldini captained Italy for 8 years and AC Milan for 12, and was renowned for his leadership skills, earning him the nickname “Il Capitano”, or ‘The Captain’.
39 Robert Pires
40 Kaka Kaka Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaká or Ricardo Kaká, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer and the Brazil national team.

Kaka is so so underrated.. He can beat messing with his skills.. He never given opportunity to play! "

Overshadowed by Messi and Ronaldo in a different time he would have been second only to pele!

Kaka is very very very very underrated just because he is kept on the bench and never given chances! Which is because of his injuries which destroyes him. Otherwise he is the best and should be given enough chances in madrid!
