  1. Impossible in the top teen of lamlista not this Juan Roman Riquelme. And I'm not a fan of mouth

  2. Many of the commenters here think that to play two good games in his hometown team deserve to be on the list of 100 best players ever.
    By the way, for my taste Iniesta should be ahead, but tastes, the colors…

  3. LACK Angel Labruna, José Manuel Moreno, ROBERTO PERFUMO, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, MICHEL SALGADO, Gabriel Batistuta, HUGO SANCHEZ…

  4. Schiaffino and Francescoli In a country 4 time world champion? ¿6 times intercontinental champion club? ¿José Nasazzi? ¿José Leandro Andrade? Alcides Ghiggia = ¿¿Obdulio Varela? Is this the Luis Alberto Cubilla? ¿Ladislao Mazurkiewicz? Is this the Diego Forlan? Is this the Nestor Gonçcalvez? Is this the Pedro Petrone? and I faltan1!! all of these are better than many of those who put nothing up there than ever.

  5. Rogerio Ceni , Seedorf , Patrick Kluivert , Christian Vieri and capocanoniere , Philip Lham , Robin van Persie , Deco

  6. Kaka’ , Sevchenko , Martin Palermo crazy , Philip Inzagui , Drogba , Lampard , Gerrard , George Best , Chinese Recoba , Juan Sebastian Veron , Rivaldo , Ribery , Okocha , louse Lopez , Eric Cantona , Caszely

  7. Very competo but I think missing names like Juan Roman Riquelme, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the theater Zanetti, Paul Gascoigne, Jean-Pierre Papin or the maximum Spanish goalscorer of all time David Villa

  8. Comprehensive but in my opinion missing names like Juan Roman Riquelme , Zlatan Ibrahimovic or the maximum Spanish goalscorer of all time David Villa
