Calendar of FC Barcelona

The magazine 'France Football' published the one who could be the best eleven of the history. In him they appear Messi, Maradona and Peeled, the three '10' more popular of the deport king. It treats of something hardly debatable because, although along the decades have existed a lot of legendary footballers, and these three occupy the three first positions of the podium.

I peeled it was born in 1930, Maradona in 1960 and Leo Messi in 1987, what suggests that players of such calibrate are born each 20 or 30 years, or in words simpler one in an alone generation. But the question on who is the best is difficult to answer since to do it it is necessary to analyse separately several appearances of the career of the three stars of the football.

The World-wide

It is impossible to analyse the careers of the three forwards without speaking of the glasses of the World-wide, a point on which, largely, edificaron the legends of Peeled and Maradona. It does not occur in the case of Messi, that for the moment has not reached the glory to conquer the World-wide of the FIFA.

The Brazilian won three Glasses of the World (1958, 1962 and 1970) and also played the one of 1966, where Brazil fell in the phase of groups. Maradona Participated in four editions (1982, 1986, 1990 and 1994), went champion in Mexico 86 and runner-up in Italy 90.

Messi also has played four World-wide (2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018) and his best register was the subcampeonato of Brazil 2014. Curiously, any of the three has won the Glass America, but Messi and Maradona himself are champions of the World-wide Juvenile. Messi won it in 2005 in Nigeria and Diego in 1979 in Japan. Besides, both were rewarded with the Balloon of Gold.

Messi equalised the goals of Peeled

Recently, Messi equalised the 643 marked goals by Peeled and needed nine parties less than the Brazilian to reach this figure in the Barça. The Brazilian played 18 seasons in the 'Peixe' between 1957 and 1974, where began his legend, but finish his career in the New York Cosmos. There it played 111 parties and marked 65 goals.

Maradona Is, of the three, the one who more distinct T-shirts dressed: Argentinians Juniors, Mouth, Barça, Naples, Seville and Newell's, teams with which played 588 parties and marked 312 goals. The '10' of the Barça, of this way, is the only that, for the moment and in spite of the episode lived the past summer, can be considered a 'one man club'. Aunado To this, sum with the Catalan group 748 parties and the 643 already mentioned goals, figures that, at least this season, will follow fattening until leaving them to some levels that could be insuperable.

The Balloon of Gold

Messi is the indisputable victorious in this section because until six Balloons of Gold lucen in the vitrinas of his house (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2019). However, the one who Maradona and Peeled did not win a Balloon of Gold during his careers has an explanation: While they were active the magazine only rewarded to European footballers.

Like this it went until 1994, year in that I Peeled received by part of the French publication a Balloon of Gold honorífico. To the following year would receive it Maradona. The Brazilian, besides, received another Balloon of special Gold in 2014.

Curiously, France Football made a review of 1956 until 1994 using the current norms. The conclusion is that twelve Balloons of Gold would have changed of owner: Of these twelve seven would have won them Peeled (1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1963, 1964 and 1970) and two Maradona (1986 and 1990). This review would convert to Peeled in the footballer of the history with more Balloons of Gold, but Messi, that follows active, would be to two awards to surpass it.

Brazil loves to Messi

The message of Peeled to Leo Messi after having equalised the Argentinian the record of marked goals with a same club did not surprise to anybody in Brazil. And it is that the '10' of the Barça, in spite of being Argentinian and exist a historical rivalry, is very wanted.

Like this they show it his statistics in Instagram, that reflect that 10% of his followers are Brazilian. Of 172 millions, more than 17 million compatriots of Peeled follow to Messi. In fact, Brazil is the country in which more followers has, just by in front of the Indian. The third is Argentina.
