History tells us many tales from the FIFA World Cups such as the ‘Hand of God’ incident of Diego Maradona which assisted Argentina in qualifying for quarter finals over England.

He scored two of the most amazing goals ever in the history . We shall continue to elaborate on them later , as of World Cups there are number of heroes who consistently prove that they can make a difference , and that their uniqueness is unmatched .

We selected the best lot out of greatest footballers in each category and developed a squad of 23 players.
