    Outside of an own goal, Italy's backline in 2006 didn't concede until the final either. There's no doubting their record but they don't have 2 bonafide GOATs in their position like Sacchi's Milan.

    Italy's backline in 78 is a good shout but I prefer the 82 squad with Bergomi that took down possibly the greatest national squad of all time. I've never seen anyone man mark someone harder than Gentile on Zico :laugh:

    One WC is something. 28 games including one WC and one EC is something else.

    He was the best, so yeah he wasn’t far off.

    Also, Kaiser doesn’t belong here at all.

    I feel like Messi and Beckenbauer are kind of in the same situation in their threads. If you consider him a CB than it’s clearly Der Kaiser, but obviously he played a different role than what most CB’s have done historically.
