The All-Time Best XI? You decide

The debate over whether Diego Armando Maradona or Pele (or Lionel Messi) is the greatest player in history is tough enough, but to pick the best 11? Now that’s difficult.

That said, UK-based magazine, World Soccer, set out to do just that, polling former players and journalists to come up with a starting 11. 

While the team is a bit muddled, with a few players out of position, we’re pretty sure they’d get the job done, especially with Coach Ferguson on the touchline.

What do you think about the list? Are there any obvious players missing?

We all have our favorite moments throughout the history of soccer. For some, it’ll be a last-gasp or incredible goal, or for others, an outstanding piece of skill. It could even be a comeback victory, or a dramatic promotion.

What Richard Swarbrick, of the upcoming Fantasista footballing art movement, has done is capture a select few of these moments and put his own unique spin on it.

Take a look at the excellent video above, which includes moments from Cruyff, Zlatan, van Basten, Gascoigne, Higuita, Pele, Maradona, Zidane and Baggio.

You can check out Richard’s spectacular portfolio - including the famous 'Gareth Bale v Inter Milan' piece - here, there and everywhere.
