Only one Italian in it, Pelè, Maradona and Messi. AI Reveals Top Football Lineup of All Time Qatar TV BeIn Sports put into motion the famous AI program ChatGPT, asking who was the best footballer of all time in each of the respective roles in the green field. Thus, with them he built the best top formation in the history of football.
The software did not disappoint the expectations, as it included some old acquaintances of Italian football such as Paolo Maldini, Diego Armando Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, but also "sanctified" the great South American champions such as Pelè and Lionel Messi.
1. Lev Yashin
The goalkeeper of Dynamo Moscow won six championships of the Soviet Union and 3 national cups, as well as the gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1956. He was also the European champion in 1960 and the winner of the Golden Ball in 1963, ahead of Gianni Rivera.
The Brazilian, born Marcos Evangelista de Moraes, won one championship title with Milan and another with Roma. With the Reds and Blacks he also won the Champions League and the Club World Cup in 2007. He was a two-time world champion (1994 and 2002) with Brazil. Cafu is considered one of the strongest right backs in history.
3. Roberto Carlos
Another Brazilian on the other wing. The left defender, instead, was wearing the shirt of the other Milanese team. Roberto Carlos da Silva Rocha won 3 Champions Leagues and two intercontinental championships with Real Madrid. He was also declared world champion with Brazil in 2002, in South Korea. He played for Inter in the 1995-1996 season.
In the middle of the field as a "director" is Xavier Hernández of Creus, the best player of the European Championship 2008 (won by his Spain, who then repeated the success 4 years later). He was ranked third for the "Golden Ball", three times in a row, in 2009, 2010 and 2011. With Barcelona, ??he won 4 Champions Leagues and 2 Club World Cups, as well as winning the La Liga title 8 times.
5. Paolo Maldini
He was "born" as a left back, but Paolo Maldini then played a good part of his career as a center back, starting from 1998-1999. And that's where artificial intelligence puts it in the top-11. The "flag" of Milan has won 7 championship titles in Serie A, an Italian Cup, 5 Italian Supercups, 5 Champions Leagues, 5 European Supercups, 2 Intercontinental Cups and a Club World Cup.
6. Franz Beckenbauer
If the role of the libero was invented by Karl Rappan, Kaiser Franz made it an art. The German legend grew up at Bayern Munich, with whom he played from 1964 to 1977, winning 4 German Cups, 4 West German championships, a Cup Winners' Cup, 3 European Cups and an Intercontinental Cup. In 1977 he moved to the NASL, to the NY Cosmos, with whom he won 3 North American championships in 4 seasons. He then returned to his homeland of Hamburg, winning another championship, before ending his career with the Cosmos. With the national team, he won the 1974 World Cup as a player and the Italian World Cup in 1990 as a coach.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
In the right wing attack is CR7, the first among the still active players, today in Saudi Arabia with Al Nassr, after wearing the jerseys of Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus. In his career, he won 5 Champions Leagues, 2 European Super Cups, 4 Club World Cups. He was declared European champion with Portugal in 2016. "ChatGpt" places him in fourth place among the best ever.
8. Zinedine Zidane
Don't make the jersey numbers official, even because there is only one number 10... Behind the striker in this 4-1-4-1 formation is the former Juventus and Real Madrid player, Zizou. With the whites, in 5 seasons he won 2 championships, an Italian Super Cup, a European Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and an Intertoto. He then moved to Real Madrid, winning a La Liga, 2 Spanish Super Cups, a Champions League, a European Super Cup and an Intercontinental Cup. With "Les Bleus" he won the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 European Championship.
Here too, let's not stop at number 9. Edson Arantes do Nascimiento, known as Pelé, is the striker of this top-formation of dreams and, according to "ChatGpt", the number one of all time. "O Rei" won three World Cups with Brazil (Sweden 1958, Chile 1962 and Mexico 1970). At home he won 10 Paulista championships with his Santos, also giving his parent club two Libertadores and two Intercontinental titles.
10. Diego Maradona
After Zidane, we give him the jersey number 10. "Pibe de Oro" is second, only to Pelé, in the ranking of the best of all time. With Napoli he won two championship titles (1987 and 1990), a UEFA Cup and an Italian Super Cup. He had previously won an Argentinian championship with Boca Juniors, then another in Spain with Barcelona (as well as a Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup). Maradona led Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
11. Leo Messi
On the left wing of the attack, the artificial intelligence places the "Flea". Even here, the list of triumphs is endless. The 44 official trophies won in his career make Messi the most successful footballer in history. We limit ourselves to remembering the last World Cup in Qatar with Argentina, 4 times the Champions League, 10 championship titles in La Liga with Barcelona and 7 "Golden Balls". He is in third place in the ranking drawn up by "ChatGpt" for the best football players in all history.
