The best soccer players in history. Eternal debate almost always multiple opinions for all tastes. Sometimes it's easier to hit the jackpot in a legal online casino in France to compare a forward with a defender, a medium with a doorman. However, it is common for larger make their mark, their records in the books of history and major football video libraries. That's why, in Hanging by the Football, We review those who in our opinion constitute some of the best footballers of all time

The best players ever

Leo Messi

An active footballer and integrate this list speaks to the kind of player we're trying. Fast and with glue on his boots, the ball never escapes this little genius. Nothing more and nothing less than 7 times Ballon d'Or and 6 times Golden Boot. Champion of America and the World with Argentina and multiple titles at club level. One of the best footballers in history.

Diego Armando Maradona

Possibly, the best talent I've ever given football. A man stuck the ball with a charisma beyond doubt. A gold left leg had the power to put the ball where he wanted. It is said of him, who won a World Cup and two Serie A titles only, which says it all.


More of 1000 goals in Brazil, tres Mundiales, Santos legendary captain of the years 60 and an icon in his country and possibly worldwide. Regates unlikely, change of pace from other eras, If we do not consider the best player of all time it is solely because he never played in Europe.

Johan Cruyff

One of the executors of total football. From the side, In the center, anywhere it was good to exploit their demonic speed. Along with this, a definition of authentic ram, what was it worth to be Ballon d'Or three times. Impossible goals were never just for him.

Franz Beckenbauer

Also because defense can be one of the greats. He showed that it was not necessary always clear, sometimes it had to start the game from the area itself. Perfect cut, Smart control, and forceful when necessary, Kaiser changed the definition of defense.

Alfredo Di Stefano

A myth of Real Madrid, which gave five European Cups. Rebel, but committed as anyone, there was nothing he could not do Don Alfredo. It is often said that there were defenses, means or front. He had the power to do everything, and also well. His only moon was never play a World Cup. The only one who has a Golden Superbalón.

Xavi Hernandez

If the players they are measured by their titles no doubt that Xavi should be at the top. Not scorer, not a magician ball, but it has an essential virtue, it is impossible to take the ball, and moreover the creator of a game system which until today has proved virtually invincible.

Michael Platini

His physique was never the best, but I never did lacks because of its enormous quality. Possibly, the best midfielder of all time. Huge set pieces, with great sense of game and with a huge scoring ability, French triumphed wherever he was.

George Best

When he wanted no one played like him. Women and alcohol deprived him of being one of the largest in history. Also the fact of being Irish and not having a powerful selection. However, what he has done with the ball, no one has been able to do on a football field.

Zinedine Zidane

The man of perfect controls. Beauty made footballer. The aesthetics of his precise passes and dazzling drive always live in the memory of fans. Russian roulette, unforgettable heads, It was the Frenchman of playing and did play the rest. To top, author of one of the greatest goals in the history of football.

Roberto Baggio

He is considered one of the best footballers in the history of Italy and the world.. Baggio also had an outstanding international career, being a key figure in the Italian team in four consecutive World Cups (1990, 1994, 1998 y 2002). with the italian team, Baggio was the top scorer in the World Cup in 1994, in which Italy reached the semifinals. Besides, was in charge of executing the decisive penalty in the final of the World Cup in 1994, although unfortunately it failed and Italy lost in the penalty shootout against Brazil.

Lev Yashin

For many, the best goalkeeper ever. Is the only goalkeeper to have a Ballon d'Or. He played more than 150 matches with the Soviet national team and was known as the 'Black Spider'.

  1. How are you going to put Messi in 7th?? It's a sacrilege for football for God's sake. Who the hell in his right mind puts him below Zidane, de Beckenbauer, by Di Stefano or by Cruyff I respect your opinion, but this is disrespectful, both him and football

  2. Those who made this list of the best 10 Players in history have no better idea that they dedicate themselves to something else because they have no idea of ​​football because of the following: 1 the best player in history is peel away for everything by technique, goalscorer, team owner, ability, winner of 3 world, of the liberating cups, 2 intercontinental etc etc etc
    The real and true list of the best players in history in my opinion is as follows:.
    1 First 2 Alfredo di Stefano 3 Maradona 4 Messi 5 Johan Cruyff 6 Franz beckenbauer 7 Garrincha 8 Eusebio ,9 Cristiano Ronaldo 10 Ronaldo and there is no place in these 10 still on the list 11 Zico 12 Zinedine Zidane 13 Ferenc Puskás 14 Platinum 15 Romario 16 bobby charton 17 Gerd Müller 18 Lev Yashin 19 George best 20 Roberto reveal

  3. In such lists is always much debate generated. And I will not be less. For me, and although he has not been in any great team nor achieved anything important, technically the best player ever is Magico Gonzales. Maradona to himself he recognized.
