There are so many different ways you could label the greatest international players of all time.
One could classify them based on their goals total, others on their assists total. There again you could base it on the amount of trophies that a player has been a participant in winning for their country.
Still there are more important things that winning, not to say it is not the reason one plays at the international level, but what makes a great player such is his affect on his team.
Does a player bring to the table the intangibles that make him great as well as those around him, does one lift his team to a different level.
Those are the factors that make a player the greatest best in the world. With so many decades and eras worth of quality players the task of deciding the 50 greatest of all time is a herculean one.
Knowing there will be much debate, get to the list and start the discussion below.
