My post on the previous page?

Anyway Madridista is right. Also one can't forget Romário was a very charismatic figure, scored 1000 goals in his career (something incredible in modern football). That's how those TOP players are compared, smetimes it's beyond football itself.

Zidane is a strange case. Brazilians usually are very provincial when it comes to football, but I think the fact he kicked Brazil out of two World Cups made him something of a myth, maybe more feared and respected than loved, but rated even higher here than another places. Also, he is a the kind of player that Brazilians love, a classical #10 with incredible skills, and born to shine at WC's.

BTW I consider Zidane the best player I've seen too.
