Any list of world’s favourite football players cannot be complete unless one has mentioned names like David Beckham, Bobby Moore, Wayne Rooney, Peter Shilton, Billy Wright, Jimmy Greaves or even Rio Ferdinand. British footballing legends have left an unforgettable impression on the 120 yard pitch with their game tactics. Be it as a goal keeper, midfielder, forward player or defender, they have turned the game to become the most popular sport of the country. Though it may look all flashy and ostentatious from far-off, football players have to go through a lot under their belt to keep the ball going. Half of their skills and tactics wouldn’t mean anything if not for a sense of patriotism and team spirit. They have added a certain depth to the game which none other sport can boast of. Their commitment for the game, dedication, and natural humility have helped them reached the zenith in their careers. British players have an unending passion which is evident in their 70-minutes on field. Read this segment and find out more about the life of famous British football players, their career, their life in field and their historic wins.
