Passing the ball seems to be a simple skill. But only very few have mastered the art and took it to another level. Today we will go back and see the 7 magnificent passers in football world history (PART 1).
6. David Beckham
It would be fair to suggest that David Beckham is the greatest crosser in the history of the game. He is a legend for England, having won well over 100 caps at international level. All prospective footballers should study his perfect technique striking a ball.
5. Xavi Hernandez
Barcelona’s effervescent midfielder, Xavi, has had an incredible effect on the game. His passing—both the short and punchy, and the long, searching balls— was exemplary. Rare was the occasion he could relinquish possession.
4. Andreas Pirlo
Andrea Pirlo is probably one of the best deep-lying playmakers in the game. The former Juventus man could only get better with age—like a fine wine or Rachel Weisz. He could spray the ball around with ease, controlling his team’s shape and dictating the flow of a game.
