    Matthias Sammer. Complete footballer, not top 10 in terms of defensive ability, but the peak of his offensive impact is up there with the legendary liberos.

    Karlheinz Förster, is regarded as a top 10 alltime stopper.

    No way I'm having him in a 4, too offensive, worthy of a mention though!

    Played for one of my favourite teams from the late 90s/early 00s.. SS LAZIO. His freekick rating would be 99 on FIFA

    I'm not sure ... maybe in a place between 41-55.

    I remember in another forum called XtraTime there was a thread like this and Figueroa was in the couple of center-backs.

    If I put him in central defenders, would be in the No. 10 position.

    but he never played in a defensive line of 4 ... always as advanced libero with 2 defenders behind him and as midfielder ... I think his role was similar to Uli Stielike.

    A mix of the research I've done with the best I've ever seen.

    In case I get any shit for including John Terry... He is responsible, to me, for the single greatest goal line clearance I've ever seen. And I will always want someone capable of making this play on my team if I had one.
