UEFA Jubilee Awards - "Golden Players"


To celebrate the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA)'s 50th anniversary in 2004, each of its member associations was asked by UEFA to choose one of its own players as the single most outstanding player of the past 50 years (1954–2003). The 52 players were known as the Golden Players. The list of players was released in November 2003, and were recognized at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon.

Why no Sindelar is easy to explain. It is about the best player of the last 50 years. But I do agree that some choices are weird yeah

Yes, it's just the players from last 50 years..

Well Šuker is there because like everywhere else when making the selections of the best players, just the players from the last 20-30 years are mentioned..

Older players, as well as the words of people who watched them playing, get redicouled and laughed. Just the thoughts of new internet fanboys generation count...

Sad but true...

Stop the PSD copycats...
