Most Underrated Football (Soccer) Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Manuel Garrincha

Single handily won the world cup for Brazil after pele got sent off. The fact that no one remembers his legacy makes him truly underrated.

One of the best ever alongside Pele

He was the best of 60's-65's.

He is Brazil 2nd best player in history

43 Alessandro Del Piero Alessandro Del Piero Alessandro Del Piero Ufficiale is an Italian former professional footballer who played as a deep-lying forward.

He is never included on the lists of the best of all time. If you look at the quality of the goals he scored, his skill, and his attitude, he should be on every top 10 list for the best of all time.

Greatest Juventus player of all time. Possibly the greatest Italian player of all time. Always performed well but has always been overlooked.

Always overlooked. I guess that's what you can expect when the internet is swarming with 12 year old barca and real madrid fans. At least the rival teams in Italy have fans that can accept the brilliance of each others players. Buffon, Maldini, Totti, Del Piero, Cannavaro, Baresi, Nesta etc are all genius players. My favorite team is juve but I don't blindly hate on other teams like barca and real madrid fans.

49 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an English club Manchester United and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

If he was born 30 years earlier we would say that he was the best footballer ever.

More than 35 years old. You should see him play. Awesome finisher

Truly a great player better than Messi and Ronaldo

54 David Villa David Villa David Villa Sánchez is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker and also serves as captain for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

Barca sold him for 5 million when he's a million times better than busquets

55 Sokratis Papastathopoulos

One of the best defenders ever and yet its been only a year he plays in a good team like Dortmund but his level is for Barcha.

He is playing for Dortmund but his quality is Bayern or Barchelona

56 Juan Roman Riquelme

English footballers were scared of him on the pitch. No wonder ManU wanted him and never out of form

Best playmaker in the football history

Best playmaker in all time

57 Branco
58 Robert Lewandowski Robert Lewandowski Robert Lewandowski is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for German club Bayern Munich, and captains the Poland national team.

There is no reason why this man is not on this list, by far Poland's greatest player of all time and he can't stop scoring goals

59 Morgan Schneiderlin

Hell yea, If we didn't have we would of got relegated no doubt.

60 Laurent Koscielny

A solid defender who is more than happy to have a pop at goal, the sign of a true player!
