4. ALFREDO DI STEFANO

The greatest player to never grace the World Cup, yet many still consider him to be the greatest of all time. In any such discussion, Di Stefano’s name should certainly be up there with the likes of Puskas, Beckenbauer, Pele, Maradona and Messi. He is almost certainly the most complete player in the history of the game. Renowned for coming deep to get the ball before taking people on or playing a wicked pass, Di Stefano was the most vital cog of the legendary Real Madrid team of the 1950s.
