Who is Italy's greatest ever player ??

There are alot of people who might say Dino Zoff, Roberto Baggio, perhaps even Paolo Rossi ??

Gaetano Scirea ??

Pedro Viechowod ??

Guiseppe Bergomi ??

Rivera or Facchetti ?

I am going to pick one of Italy's greatest servants, one of their unsung heroes of yesteryear.

Back in the mid seventies to mid eighties, Italy had an untouchable defender.

Probably one of the greatest man markers of all time and easily one of the greatest and most under rated.

This man marked Diego Maradona (the greatest player in the world at the time) successfully in the 1982 world cup, and enjoyed a really great 1986 world cup.

Alot of you might think the reason that Italy won in 82 is because of Paolo Rossi, but it may have counted for nothing in the end if this man wasnt doing his job.

I am paying homage to one of Italy greatest ever players and an unsung hero.

Take a bow Claudio Gentile

This is always a difficult question to pose. The same question comes up with respect to some of history's great heavyweight boxers. They were all greats of their respective time period.

There were so many great Italian players but out of all of them I would have to say that both Baggio and Rossi were the best Italian players ever. Rivera and Fachetti were also great Italian players.
