There have been so many great players in the history of football.
Pele won three World Cups with Brazil and scores hundreds of goals in his career.
Diego Maradona also has a case when it comes to crowning the greatest player of all time, having done some extraordinary things on the football pitch.
But who is the best of them all?
You can view their rankings below…
50. Luka Modric
49. John Charles
48. Robert Lewandowski
46. Omar Sivori
45. Paulo Rossi
44. Paul Breitner
43. George Weah
41. Lev Yashin
Modric and Lewandowski haven’t hung up their boots yet but have both made the list.
Weah, one of the greatest African players of all time, makes the list just below Kaka and Russian legend Yashin.
40. Gunnar Nordahl
39. Sandor Kocsis
38. Kevin Keegan
37. Hristo Stoichcov
36. Gianluigi Buffon
35. Johan Neeksens
33. Luis Suarez [ESP]
32. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge
31. Andres Iniesta
Buffon, now 43, is still going strong at Juventus. He’s the best goalkeeper ever In 90min’s view.
Barcelona’s incredible midfield duo, Xavi and Iniesta, are separated by just three places in 34th and 31st respectively.
29. Bobby Moore
27. Lothar Mattheus
25. Ruud Gullit
24. Bobby Charlton
23. Guiseppe Meazza
22. Raymond Kopa
Moore and Charlton, legends at West Ham and Man United respectively, both make the top 30. They were both inspirational as England won the World Cup in 1966.
Ronaldinho, one of the most entertaining players ever, just misses out on a spot in the top 25.
That seems a bit low, it must be said. Ronaldinho had his flaws and his time at the top was not long but he was a special, special player.
19. Marco van Basten
18. George Best
16. Franco Baresi
15. Ferenc Puskas
14. Paolo Maldini
13. Gerd Muller
12. Mane Garrincha
11. Alfredo Di Stefano
Man United legend Best makes the top 20, just ahead of Van Basten.
Maldini is the highest ranked defender on the list, coming in at 14th.
10. Roberto Baggio
9. Michel Platini
8. Zinedine Zidane
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
6. Ronaldo Nazario
5. Johan Cruyff
4. Franz Beckenbauer
3. Lionel Messi
1. Diego Maradona
There is so much to dissect here.
How is Cristiano Ronaldo all the way down in seventh? Of course, all those above him are incredible players.
But the Portuguese legend deserves to be rated higher given his brilliance in the past two decades. He’s scored the most goals in the history of the game and he’s still going strong at the age of 36.
Does ESL collapse signify the end of corruption in football? Here’s what The Football Terrace has to say…
Messi being in third is also controversial. Are there really two better players in history than the Barcelona legend?
Pepe takes second, behind Maradona. Both players did some extraordinary things at international level and that is why they’ve been ranked ahead of Messi.
That, of course, is a valid argument but one that many won’t agree with.
