Best Soccer Player of All Time FIFA

If you are a soccer fan, you probably want to know who the best soccer player of all time is; FIFA made its own list and tried to give the answer to this question. It is certainly not an easy one, so FIFA offered a list of players, being aware that it is rather impossible to pick just one.

Famous soccer player Pelé selected fifty soccer players who are still active and fifty more that do not play anymore.

The list was criticized for resembling political affinities rather than real soccer playing qualities. But there were also many positive comments. We will only show you one part of the list, just to get the picture. The rest of it can be found on the Internet. So here is the part of the list:
