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?

With FIFA’s Ballon D’or 2012 award ceremony only a few weeks away, we take a look back at the only goalkeeper to to hold the award: Lev Yashin.

Yashin played for Dynamo Moscow from 1950-1970, with a total of 326 appearances and 1 goal to his credit. Nicknamed the “Black Spider,” Yashin also made 78 international appearances for the Soviet Union. The ex- Dynamo Moscow keeper also holds the honor of being voted the best goalkeeper of the 20th century by the IFFHS.

Sit back and watch as we honor one of the all-time greats in world football.
