So I’ve noticed that when sports events are huge, people have a tendency to compare current players to older, retired, amazing players. So I’ve decided to compile a list of ten players that are considered soccer legends.
Like my last list, they will be in alphabetical order, to show no preference.
Position: Second striker/winger
World Cups played in: 90, 94, 98
World Cups played in: 66, 70, 74
World Cups played in: 66
Team : Netherlands
World cups played in: 90
Position: Attacking midfielder/second striker
World Cups played in: 82, 96, 90, 94
World Cups played in: 90, 94
World Cups played in: 58, 62, 70
Position: Attacking midfielder
World Cups played in: 78, 82, 86
World Cups played in: 78, 86, 94
Position: Playmaker, attacking midfielder
World cups played in: 78, 82, 86
And there you have. Now, when people talk about how amazing Maradona was, or about how someone doesn’t compare to Pelé, or how there will never be another Zico, you’ll know exactly who they mean!!
