5. Andrea Pirlo
Club: New York City FC
Renowned for: Remarkable distribution of the ball, creating millions of chances for scoring goals
Andrea Pirlo is one of those few players like Xavi, who has won every major title achievable in his career, which includes the World Cup, The Champion’s League trophy, the Serie A title, and many more as well. In 108 international appearances, he managed to score just 13 goals but managed to create thousands of goal scoring opportunities. They call him l’architetto for this particular reason. He comes at the 5th spot in our countdown.
