The top ten soccer players of all time should be based on greatness, popularity, impact and accomplishments. In the world today, determining the top soccer players is a hard task to accomplish. Such is the range of talented soccer players from almost every corners of the world, that it is very difficult to conclude who are the elite among the elite. With the rich history of soccer, there have been the all-time greats who usually ring a bell when their names are mentioned.
Our number ten occupied with Ronaldo of Brazil. And number nine falls to Ferenc Puskas, this qualifies him due to his astonishing record. He recorded 83 goals out of 84 internationals while playing for Hungary. He is considered as one of the all-time best strikers in history.
Number eight goes to Stanley Matthews. His career spanned for 33 years leaving a remarkable impact on the sport and showcasing his shear greatness. And Bobby Charlton takes the seventh spot. His stint for English team Manchester United earned England’s first championship in a European Cup. The other players’ reputations speak for themselves.
Number six falls to Eusebio and number five Johan Cruyff. Number four, Lev Yashin and third with Franz Beckenbauer and number two deservingly goes to Diego Maradona.
Last but not the least Pele at number one the most popular soccer player ever. Pele not only showed his stuff on the field but off it as well. He helped the sport grow to what it is today and that is saying a lot about all the accomplishments of this guy. He has become a constant ambassador of the sport and never wavered supporting it, even assisting it grow to greater heights. Pele’s undaunted greatness set him in a plateau that only he has reached.
