Top 7 Best Football Players
Over the years we have been able to enjoy the quality and good play of many footballers. However, there are only a few who have the honour of winning a place in people’s memories. Forwards, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers, only 7 of them will be part of the Double Seven team.
Diego Armando Maradona, the one and only, “El Pelusa”, controversial on and off the pitch, has earned the honour of being the greatest footballer of all time. Quality, vision, speed, dribbling, technique, good shooter, a complete player with a lot of character. We will all remember the World Cup in Mexico in 1986 when he took Argentina to heaven.
To compete for Maradona’s throne, we have Edson Arantes do Nascimento “Pelé”. Brazilian footballer who played as a forward, fast, technical, a natural goalscorer, a “killer” in the penalty area who scored 1284 goals throughout his career. He played for Santos and Cosmos NY and retired in 1977 after winning 3 World Cups.
“El Flaco” (The skinny one) was Hendrik Johannes Cruijff nickname, better known as Johan Cruyff. The forefather of the FC Barcelona football style we know nowadays. Winner of 3 Ballon d’Or, Cruyff was considered the greatest European player of all time. An impressive talent for football combined with exceptional dribbling skills, speed and great ball control helped Johan Cruyff to be remembered as one of the greatest players in history.
On the pitch, Zinedine Zidane was an attacking midfielder who liked to move freely to organise his team’s attack; his outstanding technical skills, powerful physique and privileged vision made him a creative, unpredictable and resourceful player.
“O Fenómeno” (Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima, “Ronaldo”) was a Brazilian footballer gifted with exceptional qualities, he was unpredictable, unsuspected, magical, powerful and accurate with the ball in his boots. His height of 1.83m and weight of 75 kg turned him into an early star and the “crack” of world football of his generation, taking over from the 80’s greatest players.
What could we say about Lionel Messi? A football living legend. We should feel privileged to continue enjoying the magic of “La pulga”. Quickness, overflow, vision, dribbling and, above all, a lot of goals. That’s Leo Messi, for many the best player of all time. He has won 4 Champions League, 10 Ligas, 8 Spanish Super Cups, 7 King’s Cups, 3 Club World Cups, 3 European Super Cups, 1 America Cup and 6 Ballon d’Or.
Determination, confidence, power, dribbling, overflow, excellent shooter… Cristiano Ronaldo has many qualities. His competition with Leo Messi keeps leaving the football world open-mouthed. A mediatic player, a team leader and a great teammate who creates passion for football wherever he goes.
