Most Underrated Football (Soccer) Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Nemanja Matic

Solid in the tackle, ridiculously strong (saw him completely destroy Yaya Toure when Chelsea played Man City) and to top it all off he has an insane left foot!

Quality player, got all the right attributes for the modern game!

82 Michael Laudrup

By far the most underrated player from Europe, along with Roberto Baggio, and one of the best passer ever.

Amazing playmaker, he combined excelent passing with great dribling skills, he was the "assister" of the Barcelona "Dream Team" in the 90s, with him in the field even a drunken and high Ballotelli could score.

83 Nicklas Bendtner Nicklas Bendtner
84 Sunil Chhetri

Best Asia attacker

85 Lionel Messi 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.

He is by far the best, NO THUMBS DOWN!

86 Mokhtar Dahari

Scored 125 goals for country and 197 for club

Score Against Arsenal 2-0. Both goals were scored by himself!

Score 1 amazing half line dribble goal against England B and Ended with 1-1 Draw in that match!

87 Ruud van Nistelrooy

If you have watched him play, you vil say he is the best that ever was. He is the best poacher and finisher in the game even now

88 Javier Zanetti
89 Jermain Defoe

The guy has been at so many clubs and has delivered goals at every single one. For England he has been so consistent. He will never get the credit he deserves

90 David Ginola David Ginola
91 Daniel Sturridge Daniel Sturridge Daniel Andre Sturridge is an English professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Liverpool and the England national team.

He is an amazing player that has the potential to be great

92 Andres Guardado

One of the best midfielders in the world

93 Xherdan Shaqiri Xherdan Shaqiri Xherdan Shaqiri is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Stoke City, and the Switzerland national team.

Swiss footballer that plays for bayern Munich. His fancy- footwork is almost up there with Neymar Jr. Doesn't get enough credit because he is not as good as Robben or Ribery, but he is disarguably the best player from Switzerland.

94 Jason Kreis

The MLS doesn't get much coverage outside of the USA, but the guy cracked 100 goals between 1996-2005.

95 Carlos Valderrama Carlos Valderrama

This man is a legend. He could have been greater if he won a wcup but this guy could pass and dribble. He was the chubby Neymar of his day especially in the MLS where he was the first MVP

96 Gareth Bale Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

He is very much Underrated

A RM who plays with Ronaldo is very underrated at Real Madrid

97 Michel Platini Michel Platini Michel François Platini is a football administrator, who served as the president of the Union of European Football Associations from 2007 until 2015, after which he was banned for 8 years following an ethics investigation by the FIFA Ethics Committee on 21 December 2015, and formerly a French football more.
98 Wesley Sneijder Wesley Sneijder Wesley Sneijder is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for Turkish club Galatasaray and the Netherlands national team.

Winner of 2010 champions league, runner-up of 2010 world cup and the best player to win rival games. And not given Golden Ball in 2010?

99 Nemanja Vidić

Still was in his prime when sold from United and should still be considered as the defender in the old

100 Mario Balotelli Mario Balotelli
