A fascinating poll this shall be :cool:

Choose 2 please

The 2 choices for me are Baresi and Scirea, evem though both were Libero's ;) SO maybe its a mistake to have no stopper for me!

I voted Baresi and Nesta because I believe that Nesta will go on to surpass Scirea.

Baresi though remains No.1 :cool:

Franco BARESI and Gaetano SCIREA.


Hold this poll again in 7 years or so to see coz I have a feeling that NESTA will be there ;)

In the tradition of Italian football there is one libero and one stopper. Even now that we do not talk about libero and stopper any more cause there is no more man marking we have two players with the carachteristics of a libero (Nesta) and of a stopper (Cannavaro).
That said my choices are Baresi (libero, but I'd like to choose Scirea too) and Vierchowod (stopper).

Bump, I think if I did this poll again Cannavaro would get a vote.

i'm actually quite baffled why on earth cannavaro, who has been a rock for italy from 98 till 08 (10 years) only has 3 vote's;

and nesta, who was injured during the 04 euro, and BOTH during world cup 02 and 06 ! so didn't attribute 10% of what cannavaro did!

now, that's baffling. someone picking nesta over cannavaro post-2006. wonder if baresi was really clearly better than scirea or if baresi got all the votes because he's more recent and people have seen and remember him.

I haven't seen half of the players on that list play but I struggle to believe that there have been more than 3 defenders better than Nesta, ever. Worlwide. Certainly not Costacurta, Ferrara or Cannavaro.

Baresi I don't remember too well, only parts of WC94 but lots of people have always said he was the greatest Italian CB, Beckenbauer I hear wasn't too shabby either....for anyone else I'm not sure I could put past Nesta, not enough 'weight' behind their support.
