Football is the most popular sport in the world. And we all need to accept that fact. And also, it is one of the most beautiful and also one of the most competitive team sports in the world. When it comes to this beautiful game, there are different eras that are born at different times. 

From the ’60s to the early ’00s, our older generation enjoyed the era of Maradona, Pele, Maldini, Zidane, Gerd Muller, Ronaldo 9, Ronaldinho, Henry, Kaka, etc. And then the Messi- Ronaldo era began.
