Cant believe nobody mentioned the best player of all time: Maradona LOL
My choice, obviously is personal, but some names are unquestionable...
GK: Lev Yashin (plenty to choose from but the The Black Spider is a Legend)
Left side: Maicon
Center: Mathaus and Beckenbaur (many to choose from... Carvalho is the best atm, imo. And don't forget Maldini, Baresi, etc)
Right: Roberto Carlos (nobody is even close to him... B. Gate and Coentrão are probably the best atm but still a long way off Roberto)
Midfielder: (gonna chose just 3...)
Maradona, Zidane, Ronaldinho
(Leaving Cruyff out, but was a close call. Also not forgetting Platini or George Best)
Ronaldo (Portuguese), Pele, Messi
(leaving incredible names out, like Ronaldo (Brazilian, 3 times best player of the year), Van Basten (one of the best Striker imo), or Eusebio (who, at the age 18 was already European champion and the star of the team), Di Stefano and Puskas (won 5 champions cup together!!!)).
Seriously guys, i know some are too young to have seen some of these players on the pitch, but search for them. Most of them decided a match by themselves and were the top of the tops. We have excellent players today, but, in my opinion, only C. Ronaldo and Messi are really "Hall of fame - top 20 players of all time" material. Some players are stars... only a few become Legends
