Luis Enrique, full name Luis Enrique Martínez García (born May 8, 1970 in Gijon) is a former Spanish footballer. He was notable for his versatility, as he played in all positions throughout his career, except central defender and goalkeeper.
After starting his career with Sporting de Gijón in 1989, Luis Enrique spent most of it with the two biggest Spanish clubs: first Real Madrid in 1991-96, and then he stunned Madrid by seeing out his contract and moving to fierce rivals Barcelona on a free transfer. The Catalan club's supporters were at first understandably hesitant about their new acquisition, but he soon won the culés heart, staying eight years with the club (1996-2004), and even becoming first team captain.
He played for Spain in three World Cups: 1994, 1998, and 2002 (as well as Euro 96) and accumulated 62 caps, scoring 12 goals in his international career. He was also a member of the gold winning squad at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
On August 10th, 2004, at the age of 34, Luis Enrique announced his retirement, feeling that he could no longer keep up to the standards he set for himself. He was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.

He experienced his most successful years playing for English club Manchester United, with whom he won the 1999 UEFA Champions League to complete The Treble. He was a key member of the Denmark national football team which won the 1992 European Championship (Euro 92) tournament.
Schmeichel is famous for his intimidating physique (he wears an XXXL shirt and stands 6'4" tall) and his attacking threat. Throughout his career, Schmeichel scored 11 goals, a great feat for a keeper. He is the most capped player for the Denmark national team, with 129 games and one goal between 1987 and 2001. Apart from Euro 92, he played for his country at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and three additional European Championship tournaments. He captained the national team in 30 matches.
Today, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers in the history of football. The IFFHS ranked Schmeichel among the top ten keepers of the 20th century in 2000,[1] and in 2001, Schmeichel won a public poll held by Reuters, when the majority of the 200,000 participants voted him as the best goalkeeper ever, ahead of Lev Yashin and Gordon Banks.[2] In 2003, Schmeichel was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in recognition of his impact on the English game. In March 2004, he was named as one of the "125 greatest living footballers", at the FIFA 100 celebrations.
He holds the record for the greatest clean sheets-to-games ratio in the Premiership with 42% of the games he played in the Premiership ending without his team conceding.
His son, Kasper Schmeichel, is currently playing for Manchester City F.C. - wiki

For Brazil, Bebeto scored 42 goals in 76 caps after making his debut in 1985. He played in three World Cups: 1990, 1994, and 1998. In 1994, he was one of the best players of the tournament, scoring three goals for the eventual champions, and then repeated the feat four years later as Brazil finished second.
Bebeto became a household name for his goal celebration in the 1994 World Cup. His wife had delivered their third child just days before a quarterfinal match against Holland. After the striker pumped the go-ahead goal into the back of the net Bebeto ran to the sideline, brought his arms together and began rocking an imaginary baby.

During the 1950s he was also a prominent member of the legendary Hungary team known as the Mighty Magyars. Other members of the team included Ferenc Puskás, Zoltán Czibor, Sándor Kocsis and József Bozsik. In 1953, playing as a deep lying centre-forward, he scored a hat-trick for Hungary when they beat England 6-3 at Wembley Stadium. Playing from deep, Hidegkuti was able to distribute the ball to the other four attackers and cause considerable confusion in the English defence. This was an innovation at the time and revolutionised the way the game was played. This is now known as SS or Second Striker with players such as Teddy Sherringham and Wayne Rooney playing there today.
As a manager Hidegkuti coached clubs in Hungary, Italy, Poland and Egypt. In 1961 he guided ACF Fiorentina to victory in the first ever European Cup Winners' Cup, beating Rangers 4-1 on aggregate in the final. With Győri ETO FC he won the Hungarian League in 1963 and then took them to the semi-final of the European Cup in 1965 where they lost to eventual runners-up, SL Benfica.
Hidegkuti died on February 14 2002 after suffering from heart and lung problems for some time before his death. MTK Hungária FC renamed their stadium, Hidegkuti Nándor Stadium in his honour - Wiki

Clubs: America (MG), Cruzeiro, Vasco da Gama.

Blurb:
Eduardo Gonçalves de Andrade (born 25 January 1947 in Belo Horizonte), better known as Tostão, is a former Brazilian footballer.
Like the majority of Brazilian footballers he was given a nickname early in his football career. His was Tostão, the little coin. Tostão was an intelligent forward who played for the Brazilian club Cruzeiro and formed a lethal partnership with Pelé in the national team which won the 1970 FIFA World Cup. After the World cup he played for Vasco da Gama.
Tostão suffered a detached retina in 1969 when he was hit in the face by a ball during a match against Corinthians. This injury almost stopped him playing in the 1970 World Cup, and when he damaged his eye again in 1973 he decided to retire from football at the age of 26.
