This year’s Ballon d’Or was one of the biggest casualties of 2020, but the publication behind the awards, France Football, gave us something to debate by announcing a Dream Team of their best players of all time.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Pele, Diego Maradona… the team selected in a vote by 140 journalists was chock-full of legendary stars that would likely trounce any team past or present.
It featured a defence made up of two World Cup winners in Franz Beckenbauer and Cafu as well as AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini, while the midfield and attack was so good that Maradona and Pele were forced onto the wing.
But with so many talented players spanning generations, there wasn’t room for all of them in one team. So France Football created a second and third XI for those who just missed out, and the teams put together are still mind-blowingly good.
