    Victor Rodriguez Andrade was voted best defender at the 1950 World Cup which his Uruguay side won. He was a complete defensive player with considerable physical & technical assets who was quality at right or left back. Puskas said he was the best he'd seen in his position.

    We pick the leading forward from the all-conquering Peñarol side in the 60's. He was an ambidextrous striker with lethal pace, off-the-ball movement, heading and balance skills and excellent finishing, that tore defences to shreds for over a decade. A career total of 446 goals in 646 games.

    In one of the exhibition tours that Peñarol did in Colombia, one of the Millionarios players, XXXXX, launched a horror-tackle on Spencer that went unpunished. Soon afterward, one of Spencer's team mates in Peñarol, XXXXX, ran after him, grabbed his neck and said:

    The next time you hit the blackie I will kill you, because he is the one that feeds us

    Pelé
    , in a interview with Pablo Forlan said:

    Someone that headed better than me was Spencer. I was good (in heading), but he was spectacular heading the ball. In general, he would do it with a burst, but without actually sprinting.

    "The greatest scorer in Libertadores history was not Pelé. Yes, you heard right, Pelé was the best player ever and broke every record, but there's that one record he doesn't have. It belongs to Alberto Spencer."

    Second pick is

    IMG_1645.JPG

    One of the greatest RB in the 70s and the best RB to ever grace Scottish soil.



    Danny McGrain



    His main position was as right-back but he was able to easily flit between the right-back and the left-back positions, or centre-half if and when needed. He may have been an affable gentleman off the pitch, but on the pitch he was an unforgiving tackler. Built out of granite, he never shirked a tackle and every opposing player knew his presence on the pitch; "a real cruel tackler" as Billy McNeill described him.

    Another great facet of his game was his pace. A speedy player, it was like as if a rhino was charging up the field with the ball for crossing and passing. Any weaknesses? He was too tough for any of that, but admittedly he has said himself that he wasn't an attacking penalty box player and goal scoring wasn't his forte, feeling a bit out of place away from the defence.

    Regardless, consistent and level headed, he managed to more than make himself known to all, and his reputation was international. He truly was world class, and many commentators from the 1970's have said that he was the best in the world in his position. A great accolade. Celtic fans always knew about his ability, and in a poll to find out Celtic's greatest XI, McGrain easily found a place in this alongside Jinky, McNeill and Larsson.

    He progressed to the first team and went on to play 659 competitive games for Celtic between 1970 and 1987, winning seven League championships five Scottish cups and two Scottish League cups

    Roberto 'The Marshal' Perfumo is regarded as one of the best Argentine defenders ever (the Argentine FA named him in their All-Time XI ahead of Ruggeri & Ayala). He was a great leader/organizer who 'had the ability to mark a player out of existence'.

    Clodoaldo Tavares de Santana was one of the best South American midfielders of the late 60's and early 70's.

    "He was a very versatile midfielder, with great ability for the mark, agile and very good for the tactical positioning, but also possessor of a great offensive and excellent dribble"

    "He played practically all his career for the Santos, club in which he shared with great figures in its beginnings and in which he was the heir of the great Zito achieving 5 times the Championship Paulista and 1 Supercopa of Intercontinental Champions"

    With Brazil, he won the 1970 World Cup.

    ~El dueño de la raya~
    'The chairman of the sideline'
    "Widely regarded as the best Argentine right winger of all time."
    "During his professional career, he only missed four of 68 penalties."

    "He was part of the Copa América-winning team in 1957, repeating the feat in 1959. Corbatta also played in the 1958 FIFA World Cup in Sweden, contributing with three goals in three games."
    Other nicknames include "The King of the Sideline" and "The Argentinian Garrincha"

    "Critics used to say he didn't control the ball with his feet, he used to "fondle" it."
    "Corbatta beat his marker, took the ball round the goalkeeper, waited for another Chilean to approach, dribbled past him and then, as the crowd urged him to finish the move off, with the goalkeeper and two other defenders charging back, dummied to shoot, leaving all three on the ground before finally stroking the ball over the line. El Gráfico called it “the most impossible piece of play ever” and a painting of the goal hangs in the lobby of the offices of the players’ union."

    ~“At penalties,” he said in an interview with El Gráfico, “I killed them all. I stood near the ball so the keeper could not react. I never stood directly behind the ball – always to the side. I struck it with the inside of the right foot in the middle, always with a sharp blow. And I would duck my head so the goalkeeper didn’t know which way I was going to shoot, and I would change when I saw what he did. And when he moved, he was a dead man.”~

    "Corbatta is remembered for his trickery, incredible balance and dribbling abilities that left defenders flailing and their inability to win the ball from him."
