There will never be anyone like Diego Maradona.He could do anything with the ball.It doesnt matter that he used drugs or something else he was the king and is the king forever.
Michel Platini said in a interwiev during euro 2000 that the things Zidane does with a soccer ball Maradona did with a orange..........
Maradona was a magician, and Zidane is the closest thing to him right now, but i believe there will be a player who will top Maradona's excellence. There are always new tricks to learn!
as for your question. I like South American and Iberian Soccer.
My 2 favorites are Luis Figo (NOW HE'S A MAGICIAN!), and Nuno Gomes who's destined to be one of the best strikers in the world.
I'm kind of a defence lover, so i'd have to choose my all time favorites by those 2: Franz Beckenbauer and Franco Baresi!
That's why i love Italia. Defence comes first! Than Attack!
That's why I included the last paragraph...'coz I knew the Dutch part in you would comment
Actually I'm a bit surprised that you know THE Michel! Even labas didn't know him! And I know not that many people outside Spain know that guy...
And I've always assumed that your actual name IS Michel, by the way...
