[quote]France Football's World Cup Top-100 1930-1990

Before the 1994 World Cup, France Football published a special supplement named "Les 100 Héros de la Coupe du Monde" (The 100 World Cup Heroes).

It included a ranking of top 100 World Cup Players from 1930 to 1990; only players from the final phases (not the qualifying stages) were considered and ranked, based exclusively on their performances at World Cup level.

The supplement includes a note in which France-Football states that some of the undisputed all-time greats like Puskas, Di Stéfano, Platini or Yashin, are not on their list because they didn´t succeed at World Cup level. Here is the complete list.
