With a break in Premier League fixtures and now an ‘International Week’, I thought it might be nice to have a light-hearted debate on what could be the Greatest Team Ever from players all over the world.
I have chosen my special team below in a 4-4-2 formation along with 7 substitutes.
Obviously there are many more ‘greats’ that have not made my team, but I defy anyone to name a better team – although I am sure so many will have their own greats they would have in their team.
So my Greatest Ever Team would be :-
G/K – Gordon Banks
Defenders – Cafu, Bobby Moore, Franz Beckenbauer, Paolo Maldini,
Midfield – Lional Messi, Diego Maradona, Johan Cruyff, George Best,
Strikers – Jimmy Greaves, Pele.
Subs:- Lev Yashin (G/K), Carlos Alberto (D), Franco Baresi (D), Eusebio (M), Michel Platini (M), Gerd Muller (S), Marco Van Basten (S).
