Battle of the World Cup stars
What better way to begin the countdown to the biggest sporting event in the world than in the time-honoured CW fashion of a battle to determine who's officially the top boy world cup-wise?
I'll impose a limit of 8 proposals (nominations or seconds) each initially, but this might go up if there's only limited uptake. Once a player has received a nomimation and been seconded they're in. Dependent on CW enthusiasm 32, 48 or 64 players seems the most likely number needed before battle is joined.
Only stipulation is that the player must've played in the world cup finals proper, so no Best, Cantona or Di Stefano, for instance.
So simple a T*ttenham fan could understand.

Methinks a Cruyff, Thin Maradona, Beckenbaur, Schmeichel all need a mention. I'll resist from putting Denis Irwin forward

Other than that, interesting thread.
I'll nominate Hristo Stoichkov for that amazing run that Bulgaria had in, I think 1994. Also Roberto Baggio (for that miss). Enzo Scifo and Georgi Hagi. Maybe Saeed el Owaiaran (sic.) and that Jose Luis Chilavert fella.
I'll second Roger Milla.
