Cafu-Terry-Maldini-Roberto Carlos

Zidane-Makalele-Scholes

Must be said that world class central defenders came off a conveyor belt, there was plenty. Nowadays there does not seem to be any coming through. Todays best ones are coming to an end.

Strikers, midfielders and goalkeepers the quality is still there and there is also an argument that the players in these positions are possibly improving but todays defenders are not.

Shame because I really enjoy a defender who can get stuck in, last ditch tackles, blocking of the line its all part of the game. Quality defending is an art form.

Neuer

Alves-Nesta-Maldini-Carlos

Viera-Gerrard

Landrup-Messi-Ronaldinho

Ronaldo

 

Cafu had a better career, but Dani Alves at his peak is the best fullback in the world...  

 

It's too hard to make top 11 in history since most of us never seen the likes of pele, etc....

 

My 11 for now would be 

 

Neuer

Ramos-Varane-Silva-Alaba

Verrati

Thiago-Vidal

Messi-Aguero-Robben

 

Bench:  Silva, suarez, benzema, modric, lahm, DDG, Gundogan and douglas costa

I was born in 1989 so will only consider players that have played since:

 

---------------Schmeichel--------------

 

--Cafu----Maldini----Terry----Cole--

 

----------Vieira----------Pirlo-----------

 

---Messi-------Zidane-----Ronaldinho-

 

---------------C. Ronaldo---------------

 

Strongly considered Buffon, Zambrotta, Nesta, Scholes, Makelele, Giggs, Henry, Raul, Ronaldo.

Where's Bobby Moore?

Some awesome teams.

 

Certainly England's best ever defender, but I rate a few - Baresi, Scirea, Beckenbauer if played there - just slightly higher in all-time sense. He's right up there though.

If you asked me to pick the team again tomorrow it would probably be completely different. Basing my team purely on players that have played since I've been watching football. 

 

 

---------------Buffon--------------

 
-Cannavaro---Terry---Maldini--
 
----------Xavi--------Keane--------
 
---Messi-------Zidane-----C.Ronaldo-
 
---------Ronaldo-----Henry-----------

Best XI - From my time:

Buffon

Maldini Baresi Nesta Cafu

Lampard Zidane

Ronaldinho

Messi C.Ronaldo

Ronaldo

Second person to include Lampard, but he was arguably the second best midfielder in the world at one stage and his goal and assists tally is ridiculous, I still think neatrul's underrate him, no chance that Gerrard was a better player in my opinion, what could he do better? Nothing.

Some honourable mentions:

Kahn

Schmeichel

Cech

Carlos

Desailly

Thuram

Terry

Cannavaro

A. Cole

Rijkaard

Rivaldo

Figo

Riquelme

Xavi

Iniesta

Kaka

Weah

Baggio

Batistuta

Suker

Piero

Shearer

Zola

Trezeguet

Raul

Shevshenko

Henry

Drogba

There's many more.
