Voting Concluded, Top 100 Players Of All-Time Revealed

Want to know who the greatest player of all-time is?

In the past 10 years, nine times out of 10, the answer is either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

The younger generation finds it impossible to look past the two superstars who have dominated world football for the last decade.

For those who are a little older may remember watching the likes of Pele and Diego Maradona and think that Messi and Ronaldo simply cannot compare.

Of course, it is difficult to compare players of a different generation because the game has changed so much.
