Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona is a name that will always remind everyone of his achievements, winning the World Cup three times. He is one of the most capped soccer players of all time, having also won the European championship four times. Some may think that it is impossible for a soccer player of his caliber to still be playing soccer these days, but that is simply not true. In fact, he is still playing soccer and may just be approaching retirement age. As he says, “After 50 years old, I am still playing soccer”.

There are several other soccer legends that can be found on line. Some of them play in the virtual game modes; while some others play the actual game. To keep up with the times, it would be fun to try each of their different types of gameplay. If you are looking for a fun and addictive way to play with your favorite video games today, then you may want to try the fully playable turn-based strategy game called FIFA.

Drogba

Drogba is a name that is synonymous with many years in soccer. The Dutchman was primarily a right back, although he did play left back in some of his matches. He first became well known in Europe, when he moved to Ajax in the Netherlands in the late 1970s. Drogba was a regular on the bench for Ajax and eventually earned the right to be part of the team that won the European Cup one year later.

Perhaps the most well known of all time is Pele. The Brazil soccer legend is well over 40 years old, which makes it obvious that he still has a lot of soccer left in him. Even though Pele is considered to be an experienced player, many of his peers are not. In fact, many of the current generation of soccer players wouldn’t even consider playing with someone as experienced as Pele if they were offered the chance.

David Beckham

Still active? If you are a soccer fan, then you probably know that David Beckham is one of the best soccer players of all time. Like many of the other soccer legends mentioned above, Beckham is already retired. He has, however, made a large impact on the soccer world with his numerous achievements. He is still active in his career as a soccer commentator, and he continues to receive widespread attention for his on-air work.

Conclusion 

Another player who is widely recognized is goalkeeper, David Vaughters. Vidas played for many years for a number of different professional teams before he was finally released by Ajax in the summer of 2021. Vidas has since joined PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, and he has become one of the most popular players in the country.
