Italy 1996 - No.3 Maldini.
As a symbol and legend for club and country, he played for 14 years for the Azzuri, making his debut in 1988 before retiring in 2002 with a record 126 caps and four World Cup participations. He has also worn the captains armband a record 74 times for his country.
Maldini was a very technical player, his timing in the tackles were perfect and he had great pace for defender. He had the ability to play as both a left back as well as a centre back.
He won the 1994 world player of the year award of World Soccer Magazine, with a unique distinction of being the first defender to do so.
During his two-decade-old career, he played only for AC Milan and holds the record number of appearances in Serie A and won seven titles.
He participated in eight UEFA Champions league finals, winning five.
Few have drawn such widespread admiration from team-mates and opponents alike. "Quite simply the best there is" was the description used by the Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero.
