The world's best soccer stars

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
While were on the subject of the World Cup I wanted to ask some of our avid soccer fans who they believe to be the best all around soccer stars in the world today....

A top five or ten will suffice, just curious as I'm not as familiar with the sport as I'd like to be.

Keano! Your list is a little light on the Italians, so I'll favor them

Add:
Kaka - Brazil (AC Milan)
Frank Lampard - England (Chelsea)
Fabio Cannavaro - Italy (Juventus)
Gianluigi Buffon - Italy (Juve)
Samuel Eto'o - Cameroon (Barcelona)
Francesco Totti - Italy (AS Roma)

He was completely pitiful when Brazil played their first match.

Can't argue with any of those,left Lamps out because I didnt want people to think it had an England bias.
Love Totti but left him out due to his long injury lay off.
Buffon is a great keeper but I cant see past that price tag.(Although I know thats not his fault).

Puyol may not even be the best Spainard. My vote goes to Cesc Fabregas. Watch out for him, he will develop into the next Ronaldinho.

He may well do,but he is not there yet hence no place in Spain's team yesterday.

I think you are mistaking Ronaldo for Ronaldinho.

He is still a dangerous player. He was the Golden Boot winner in the 02WC and has long been one of the best strikers in the game. He seems to not give effort more than anything physical sometimes.

I don't really care about how "famous" a soccer player is. My FAVORITES are

Ruud Van Nistelrooy (currently of Manchester United/Netherlands national team)

Demarcus Beasley (Chicago Fire/US national team)

Thierry Henry (Arsenal/France national team)

Pavel Nedved (semi-retired Juventus/ Czech national team)
