In goal, from the perspective of sports journalists, Russian number 1 legend Yashin is the most worthy figure. He played 74 matches for the former Soviet team from 1954 to 1970. Until now, he is still the only goalkeeper to win the Golden Ball.

The trio in defense is a combination of German, Brazilian and Italian legends.

In the midfield, the legend of the Barcelona club and the Spanish team, Xavi Hernandez, is ranked as the best defensive midfielder, after his contributions, especially the two European championships. and the national team’s world championship, 4 Champions League titles with Barca.
