    Well, the two people I was thinking of have already been taken (Zidane & Ronaldo) and my third choice doesn't fill the category I was hoping to get out of the way. However, I'm going to go for my player from Category 2 - Has played domestic football in three or more countries.

    A man who played for Inter, Sporting Lisbon and both of the big two in Spain. One of the most gifted midfielders ever, and one of the best players I've been lucky enough to see live. Luis Figo. :clap:

    I have 10 players that I want to pick, all would be instant picks so the decision is what area to concentrate so I decided to pick the best defensive midfielder to play the game EVER .
    He has played in five World Cups (1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998 ) , 3 European champs, capped by Germany 150 times (most ever) . Described by Maradona as his hardest opponent , he is of course .

    Lothar Matthäus

    Cat. 2,3,9,10,11

    Great pick, I was torn between him and Fabio but I wasn't sure what formation to play so I just went for a centre-back.

    In the top scorer category what do you mean by top divisions, the top division in that country? If not which countries divisions are counted as top divisions?

    If someone just went on loan to another club when they were a kid in their very first season does that disqualify them from being a one club man even if they technically stayed at the same club their whole career for like say 20 years?

    The top tier/division of any country.


    Examples include:

    Italy - Serie A
    Spain - La Liga
    England - Premier League
    Germany - Fußball-Bundesliga
    Portugal - Primeira Liga
    France - Ligue 1
    Scotland - Scottish Premier League
    Brazil...
    Russia...
    Peru...
    Latvia...



    RE: Loan

    If we take Everton's Ross Barkley as an example, he has played games for Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United on loan. This would disqualify him as one-club player.

    Maldini was my next pick .

    Category 1 - Has played for only one club
    Category 7 - Has won the FA Cup
    Category 8 - Has never played at the World Cup
    Category 9 - Has played in a Champions League Final

    He needs no write up as domestically he has won everything.
