Is This the Best Ever World Cup XI?

It’s that time of the season where people start thinking of dream teams and fantasy signings and with that in mind take a look at this attempt at a best ever World Cup XI, pretty good team as well.

FUSSBALL: NATIONALMANNSCHAFT 1994 ITALIEN, 18.06.94


Goalkeeper

Gianluigi Buffon – the most expensive and the best goalkeeper in the business, the Italians have always had a masterful defence but Buffon when called upon (and he was called upon a lot in 2006) was magnificent. Italy won the World Cup in 2006 not through masterful attacking play but on a solid defence at which, Buffon was at the heart.

Defence

Bobby Moore – England’s talisman in 1966, made defending look like an art, Moore was the prototype for the modern defender, who was equally adept with the ball at his feet and could comfortably link the defence with the midfield.

Paolo Maldini – quite simply one of the great players of all time his performances for Italy throughout the World Cup campaigns of 94, 98 and 2006 were a joy to behold the absolute epitomy of a footballing legend.

Frank Beckenbauer – another player who made defending into an art-form his performances for Germany in 1974 were breathtaking. He absolutely dominated goals from defence and is probably the greatest German player of all time which, when you consider the competition is no small feat. (The World Cup Blog)
