    Kopa and Neeskens strong picks, but Souness significantly weaker in this evaluation than their club career.

    George Weah’s achievements with Liberia are also dwarfed by his club performances in France and Italy.

    Bearing in mind the criteria I thought strikers like Albert, Forlan, and Suarez would have been picked at some point.

    Yeah I agree with your evaluation on Souness and Weah, but as you said Neeskens, Kopa and Luisito are really strong picks with strong credentials as well. Expected Kopa and Luisito to go much sooner tbh.

    Just realised I posted this in the wrong thread:

    Accepting votes now. I have sent mine to @Minty since his team is ineligible anyway.

    OK I'm going to push back the deadline, I'm going to be watching the football as well and then I have a class to get to. The results will be out tomorrow.
