Gianluigi Buffon

I brought her some (goalkeeper) gloves after a basketball game and she liked the way they felt.

There is something in the gloves which makes a goalie perfect. Those gloves are meant to create marvel by saving the goals in the most astounding ways. Since 1930, magical goalkeepers have been appearing and setting records in World Cup. They jump, they flip, they slide, they sweep and go to any extent to save their net from being attacked by the opponents. Have a look at the most outstanding World Cup goalkeepers in 1978-2006:

Hernan Crespo

“When you are 4-0 up you should never lose 7-1.” Lawrie McMenemy

Winning 7-0 is only possible with extremely talented forwards (strikers) in a team which are arranged specifically to score the goal. They are the main strikers when it comes to the net of opponents. Due to their ability to score, forwards are the most expensive players of a team. Let’s have an insight into the list of top FIFA strikers:

2006 FIFA World Cup (Germany)

• Hernán Crespo (Argentina)
• Thierry Henry (France)
• Miroslav Klose (Germany)
• Luca Toni (Italy)

Lilian Thuram

“They say that the best defense is offense, and I intend to start offending right now.” Captain James

Defending is a beautiful blend of calm and offensive approach. Being calm helps defenders to think what needs to be done and offense helps them to keep the opponent off their net. Their movements and control on the ball play a major role in the win of any team. Whether offensive or defensive, these boys are a pride of any team. Here is a quick glance at the defenders of 1978-2006:
