    Helenio Herrera Grande Inter Recreation Tactic

    Who was the best footballer of all time?

    Can only hope that the players I picked people agree with, or at least to a certain extent. Any suggestions for who I should've picked instead are always welcome. I tried to be unbiased about the country of origin of the players, but I couldn't really help having numerous brazilian players.
