However, there are some that are renowned the world over for their unfathomable sportsman spirit and some of the best game skills which they have put up. Here is taking a look at some of the best football player of all times.

When it comes to soccer player’s 1 name which you can’t manage to skip at all is Diego Armando Maradona. He is one of the best soccer players in the entire world. He is the one who helped bag the world cup trophy for Argentina in the year 1986. Maradona is stated to have the finest World Cup Goal to his credit till date. Argentina triumphed over England football team, with a striking goal of Maradona which he pursued single handedly right from the halfway line to finishing score. This goal is still commonly known as as the ‘goal of the century’ by FIFA. In the same game itself he bagged yet another goal to his credit as recognized and renowned as ‘hand of the god’ goal.

Another football player, whose name commands a great deal of regard is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, also popularly called Pele. A healthy and slim form joined with unmatched gaming skill made Pele one of the best players of all times. He has won 3 world cups with Brazil and has an excellent 500 goals to his credit.

Are the Football Shirts More Famous From a Particular Country?

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

When you think of football shirts, the first country that comes to mind is England. Manchester United has dominated football shirt sales for years, and they are not likely to fall off any time soon. I’m sure there are many countries that would argue the point, but I don’t think there’s any doubt that the UK, particularly England, continues to hold the title as the country with the most famous football shirts.

From Manchester United to Middlesbrough to Celtic United, UK teams have always set the standard for football shirts. It only makes sense because football was created in England, so the traditions and styles of football wear were established there first. The famous red vest with white arms of the Arsenal defined an era of football in England. Everyone would recognize the basic elements of football shirts that came out of the English tradition. The three stripes on the shoulder of short sleeved shirts, or the alternating vertical stripes that are so commonly used in football shirts are two examples.

As football continues to be an international game, countries outside of the United Kingdom are beginning to set trends as well. Several innovative designs are coming out of countries like Brazil or Germany, where football is a matter of national pride.

England’s various teams have always set the standard for football shirt design. If you see a color pattern or design on a football shirt and believe you’ve seen it before, it’s probably been a design worn by a team from the United Kingdom.

The famous players who wear the shirts also have a lot to do with how famous a shirt is. The shirt’s fame can also hinge on when it was worn and how well a team did. The 1966 World Cup Final shirt that was worn by England is famous for its simplicity – a red shirt with the simple white English crest on the chest. The 1968 Manchester United shirt that was worn in the European Cup Final is famous for its unusual dark blue color, and for the famous players who wore it when Manchester United won the European Cup.

Some famous shirts from outside of the UK have much to do with the men who wore them. The 1986 blue and white striped Argentina shirt reminds fans of the year Diego Maradona helped lead Argentina to a World Cup victory. The football shirt worn by Pele in Brazil’s 1970 World Cup win is also pretty well known internationally. Football fans are known for their loyalty, so the question of whose football shirts are most famous could draw some pretty intense arguments. Most fans would, of course, declare their own country’s shirts as the best and most famous. I believe that the tradition and longstanding domination of the football teams from England would have to give them the edge in this competition. The shirts may change from year to year, but England has always set the style for football shirts around the world.
