Can you choose better?

Well dear readers, I have been a bit annoyed that all the so-called experts claim that they can choose the best 14 (11 plus 3 subscribers) in the world of all time. So I thought I'd do something about it and stop all this confusion and post the final team with no arguments. The formation I have chosen is 3-1-4-2.

1. Lev Yashin
At the first European Championship in 1960, still called the European Cup of Nations at the time, the Moscow lion, also known as the black panther, made a significant contribution to his country's victory. His name: Lev Yashin. In 1963, he became the first goalkeeper to be named European Footballer of the Year. In 2004, he would have turned 75.

2. Bobby Moore

Bobby Moore was England's best captain, a legend who led his country to its greatest triumph. He played for England 108 times, captained a record 90 games (held jointly with Billy Wright), won the World Cup, FA Cup, Recopa de Europa and was Footballer of the Year, and at the end of Moore's international career in 1976 was crowned by the United States for a tournament to commemorate its bicentennial.

3. Paolo Maldini

During his 16 years as an international, he became Italy's most capped player, representing his country 126 times. One of the great disappointments of Maldini's extraordinarily tall career was the lack of major international titles, yet Maldini could easily console himself by looking up to the mantelpiece and recalling the incredible success he has had (and still enjoys) for his club.

4. Franz Beckenbaur

Franz Beckenbauer is the only man to have won the World Cup as a player and as a coach. Your honor roll is unique. Captain of West Germany when he won the World Cup and the European Championship, he also led his club, Bayern Munich, to three consecutive European Cups and also to the Recopa de Europa. However, the legacy of Beckenbauer's golden career will last for a long time. No other footballer, as an innovator and as a winner, has reached such heights as The Kaiser.

5. Claude Makelele

Perhaps the best midfielder in recent years, Makelele has made a career out of keeping things simple and protecting the four behind. The Democratic player from Congo moved to Epinay-sous-Sinart, France, with his family in 1977. He began his career with Brest in 1990 before joining Nantes in 1992, twice winning the Spanish title, as well as the League. of Champions. and the European Super Cup, and also played the 2002 World Cup for his country, won the Premiership and the Carling Cup, in 2004/05 with José Mourinho at Chelsea. Makelele collected another Premiership medal in May 2006 and was later part of the French team that lost to Italy in the World Cup final. He said goodbye to the international scene after Euro 2008.

6. Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine Zidane has received all the important awards that a player can get. He won the precious Balon D'Or in 1998 and the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 1998, 2000 and 2003. He can liquidate and distribute almost any pass thrown at him. In singles matches, Zidane prefers to protect the ball and dribble away from pressure. His style is not flashy, but simple and elegant. Zidane can apply his play-making skills in any circumstance and make it seem effortless.

7. George Best

He reached unimaginable heights with his outrageous skills in a career that lasted just six years at the top, before self-destructing in alcoholism, bankruptcy, and jail. To this day, Best maintains that nothing went wrong, that he just got bored with it all. In six magical seasons with United, he scored 115 goals in 290 games - six of them in one game! He won two League Championships, the European Cup and was voted European Football of the Year. Pelé named him his favorite player, which was remarkable considering that Best's international career with Northern Ireland never allowed him a chance to appear in the World Cup final.
