One of the finest dribblers in the history of the game. Easily in the top 3 with Garrincha and Messi. What a legend.

Ndaye Mulamba, first queued up as a possible one-to-watch by our illustrious threadstarter some 12 years ago, dead at 70. Played for Zaire in their notorious 1974 World Cup run, and was sent off after 22 minutes against Yugoslavia (the match they went on to lose 9-0).

Shame on you all for not going for Mulamba. I always had faith in you Ndaye.

Egisto Pandolfini, played for Italy in the 50 and 54 editions, dead at 92. Also played in the 1948 Olympics if we're going to set up a separate thread for Olympic football tournaments.
