Football is a beauty that is to be experienced, felt, and totally shared. There are games that the highest point of excitement boils down to nothing more than the moment a successful dribble is held. A moment of pure magic when the brain is in perfect harmony with the muscles to the point of letting the defender perplex. It is an art form that demands perfection and a lot of talent to perform the splendid and even larger balls for large stage performance. There are only a few in the world of football who have excelled in taking this art to the highest levels and have won the greatest glories. In this list, we have highlighted the 10 best dribblers that the world has already seen, in no particular order.
10: Johan Cruyff
Cruyff was so dazzling in the field that many regarded him as Pele’s natural successor. He certainly did not do any injustice to people’s high expectations of him. Although he was a center-forward by nature, Holland’s new line of football demanded more from each player and he delivered on all fronts.
9: Roberto Baggio
Roberto Baggio’s career may have been cruelly defined by the fraction of a second his talent abandons. The image of the “divine ponytail” remains around the penalty spot with its head lowered, while Brazil celebrated its first World Cup triumph. This has more than 2 decades, but they are one of the best moments remembered. As a footballer, he won 2 Scudetti, a UEFA Cup, a Ballon d’Or, and a World Player of the Year award. He scored 204 goals in 452 Serie A games and 27 in 56 international matches.
