Ronaldo, Forward

Popularly dubbed “The Phenomenon,” he is widely considered to be one of the greatest football players of all time. A three-time FIFA World Player of the Year and two-time Ballon d'Or recipient, Ronaldo, in his 1990s prime, was known for his dribbling at speed, feints and clinical finishing. He was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the greatest living players compiled in 2004, and was inducted into the Brazilian Football Museum Hall of Fame and the Italian Football Hall of Fame.

Greats Of The Game | Roberto Carlos, Left-Back

Roberto Carlos started his career in Brazil as a Forward but spent most of his career as a Left-Back and has been described as the “most offensive-minded left-back in the history of the game”.

He was nicknamed El Hombre Bala (“The Bullet Man”) due to his powerful bending free kicks, which have been measured at over 105 miles per hour (169 km/h). He is also known for his stamina, running speed, technical skills, crossing ability, long throw ins and 24-inch (61 cm) thighs. In 1997, he was runner-up in the FIFA World Player of the Year. Considered one of the best left backs in history, he was chosen on the FIFA World Cup Dream Team, and in 2004 was named by Pelé in the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players.

At club level, he joined Real Madrid in 1996 where he spent 11 highly successful seasons, playing 584 matches in all competitions and scoring 71 goals. At Real Madrid, he won four La Liga titles and the UEFA Champions League three times. In April 2013, he was named by Marca as a member of the “Best Foreign Eleven in Real Madrid’s History”. In August 2012, he announced his retirement from football at the age of 39.

Nine more iconic names will join the National Football Museum Hall of Fame this Thursday. This year’s inductees include Chelsea hero Frank Lampard. Frank Lampard began his career at West Ham, but was to become an icon at Chelsea. The only midfielder to have scored 150 or more Premier League goals during his career, Lampard announced his retirement early in 2017. He won over 100 caps for England, and his a trophy haul includes 3 Premier Leagues, 4 FA Cups and of course a Champions League title. Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer, he is described by their website as “one of the finest players in Chelsea Football Club’s history, and perhaps the best of the lot.”


Greats Of The Game | Paul Gascoigne, Midfielder

Known by his nickname, Gazza. He has been described by the National Football Museum as “the most naturally gifted English midfielder of his generation”.

Born and raised in Gateshead, the midfielder signed schoolboy terms with Newcastle United, before turning professional with the top tier (pre-Premier League creation) club in 1985. Three years later he was sold on to Tottenham Hotspur for a £2.2 million fee. He won the FA Cup with Spurs in 1991, before being sold to Italian club Lazio for £5.5 million the following year. In July 1995, he was transferred to Rangers for £4.3 million, and helped the club to two league titles and two trophies. He returned to England in a £3.4 million move to Middlesbrough in March 1998. He made his debut in the Premier League in the 1998–99 season, having already featured in the 1998 Football League Cup Final. He switched to Everton in July 2000, and later had spells with Burnley, Gansu Tianma (China), and Boston United.
