The mysterious persona behind wearing the No. 10 jersey has taken on a life of its own over the years. It is one of the most iconic numbers in football history, and is usually worn by an offensive midfield play maker or supporting forward. Though in recent years it has become an honorary number, a sign of respect, rather than a positional number.
Several iconic players wear the coveted No. 10 for their countries. Crucial players such as Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., Cesc Fabregas, Karim Benzema, James Rodriguez, and Wayne Rooney.
