Let’s proceed to the list of the best Argentine soccer players of all time. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice if you are a soccer fan. Without a doubt, we are talking about a country that has yielded the most successful soccer players who are known worldwide such as Pelé, Ronaldo, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, etc., and who are considered to be in the top ten football players of all time. Brazil’s national football team is the most successful team in the FIFA World Cup with five championship titles.

The second soccer player should be Ruggeri (Oscar Alfredo Ruggeri) as he represented Argentina in three FIFA World Cups: 1986, 1990 and 1994 after which he retired. The third player should be Ayala (Roberto Fabián Ayala). Roberto Ayala represented Argentina in 115 matches and was a team captain in 63 of them. As a soccer player of the national team of Argentina, he participated in three FIFA World Cups (1998, 2002 and 2006) and won an Olympic Gold medal in 2004.
