Best soccer players of all time
These are the best soccer players of all time, according to the poll:
The only reason why Messi has not dethroned him, say 87 percent of those consulted. It is because of his lack of imprint on the playing field and changing leadership, in second place with 61 percent not having been able to win a World Cup and lose Copa America finals. His goals and statistics, or titles, are not discussed, but Maradona adds support with 89 percent of opinions in his favor, as the best in history.
The Brazilian is considered the best of an era, but not of all time by 77 percent, without a doubt, despite being world champion with his country three times. He scored more than 1,000 goals in his career, but the fact of not having competed in Europe is what perhaps prevents him from being clearly among the best. It is the most outstanding fact by those consulted by 81 percent.
Messi is recognized as one of the big three, 33 percent place him as the best of all time, ahead of Maradona and Pelé, but not for his sufficient merits and his talent is recognized in addition to the titles he has won they deserve to be the best in history, or at least to be in the top 3. It is impossible not to admire the quality he has, innate, with the ball at his feet, says 44 percent of the public consulted.

As much as he is one of the two best players, the Portuguese are still far from the previous ones. Perhaps also because of a personality, his score does not exceed 29 percent of Maradona and Messi’s preferences. The report highlights 65 percent that Messi is the talent and CR7 is the product of work, the example that if you prepare, you can achieve everything you set your mind to.
