    Those hookers and casinos in Macau did a number on that 2002 team IIRC. It is a shame because the way the dominos fell in 2002, it could have been Portugal in that final if they had shown 75% of what they were capable of. Germany were average, Spain got completely hosed, and Italy were a combination of the two.

    I wouldn't rate anyone but Rui Costa as close to Figo in that generation though. I had a soft spot for Pauleta from his time at PSG, but I can call a spade a spade; he was an average forward. I think more or less the same of Joao Pinto and Nuno Gomes. I still recall Joao Pinto missing a ridiculously easy header and scoring one of the more difficult headers I've ever seen not five minutes later.

    Good top five. I'm not sure I could narrow it down to five, but those five are definitely deserving. Those Real Madrid teams with Galacticos were a blast to watch. Ronaldinho's Barca teams were fun. Rivaldo was a beast, even when his legs stopped working. Pirlo on his best days is an unreal player to watch. Most people don't rank Beckham near the top of any list, but he was a hell of a player to watch at United, even in the latter stage when he and SAF were at odds.
