I got a versatile team, multidimensional and unstoppable on both ends. I got two natural finishers who can put the ball in the net in a variety of ways. Behind them I got Cantona who is more than capable of carrying the team and scoring crucial goals in clutch moments. I have a balance of creativity, technique and toughness + defense in my midfield.
: Greatest keeper ever to grace a football pitch, leader and motivator, most impactful keeper in the history of the game. Only keeper to be named the best player of a World Cup. Took Bayern all the way and won them a Champions league title. Took Germany on a dream ride with an injured hand in 2002 and named player of the tournament.
I have one of the greatest free kick and set piece takers and crossers of all-time in Brehme
combine that with the aerial prowess of Klinsmann and you already have an all-time duo. Could play equally well with both feet, he used to take penalties with his right foot and corners and freekicks with his left. He could run up and down the field all game like a machine.
I also have a tireless RB in Vogts
(the guy who shutdown Cruyff
). The best RB Europe has produced. Great tackler, strong and quick, amazing man to man defender. Relentless on offense, smart in passing and crossing, always trying to impact the game.
My team boasts of a physical lockdown defender in Kohler
, all-time stopper and marksman. Spectacular tackler, great in air and a strong beast.
known for his great technique, his leadership, his organization ability on the field, A strong reader of the game a formidable passer and dribbler. Also could score well for a defender.
: Spain's best DM in history, a strong defensive midfielder with great vision and passing skills. Could destroy any opponent's play build up with his tackling and interceptions. His stamina and offensive awareness let him translate his defensive plays into instant offense, allowing him to score a whooping 170 goals in his 16 year tenure at Real Madrid. He also scored 16 goals in 47 games for Spanish NT.
: One of the most talented and versatile players in history, Brietner first started as a WB for Bayern and quickly became the best in that in position. His technique, passing, crossing and defense made him a great wing. But later as his game matured he moved to CM to make more use of his vision and ball distribution skills. A creative mind who could put any offensive player in a goal scoring opportunity at any moment. Probably the greatest balance of offensive and defensive threat ever found in a midfielder.
: A Box-to-Box midfielder primarily responsible for defensive duties before setting up his teammates on attack. Best remembered as a member of “The Magic Square” one of the greatest midfield foursomes of all-time alongside Michel Platini, Alain Giresse and Luis Fernandez in World Cup 1986. Tigana had excellent understanding of the game and team movements, coupled that with solid passing made him a formidable force in midfield.
: Do I need to introduce this beast? Great leader, shot taker, versatile scorer, relentless in attacking and competitive to a fault. Manchester United's greatest player ever, could crush any defense and intimidated all defenders who went at him.
: My favorite player from the 1990 WC German Championship team. Best in history of the game in air, best remembered for his diving header goals. Long and athletic, surprisingly skilled on the ground, excellent shooter and deadly with the ball in the penalty box.
: Unarguably the best finisher and scorer of all-time, 68 goals in 62 games for Germany, 370 goals in 427 Bundesliga games and 66 goals in 74 European club games. Der Bomber was extremely agile and quick, his bursts of speed would take any defender off-guard. This is what Beckenbauer
, the greatest CB, has to say about him "His pace was incredible. In training I have played against him and I never had a chance." Added to those characteristics, he had an amazingly high vertical and continuously jumped higher than defenders for headers.
