How good was Alfredo Di Stéfano?

From 1956 through 2009 France Football (a football magazine) awarded the Ballon d’Or to the world’s best player.  This award was considered among the most prestigious in the world and was one by everyone from Stanley Matthews to Lionel Messi- Di Stefano was one of only eight men to win it twice.

In 1999 they had all of the Ballon d’Or winners from 1956-1999 vote on a “Footballer of the Century.”  The finishing order was, Pelé, Maradona, Cruyff, and Di Stefano.

And he never played in a World Cup…

R.I.P.
