When future Argentinian superstar Diego Maradona was growing up, he idolised a selection of players. But there was one curious name in his bracket of heroes: Rivelino, the moustached genius who wore the canary-yellow of Brazil. "Even though he played for Brazil, I just couldn't help but love him," Maradona later recalled.

In the late 1990s, the lifelong Boca Juniors devotee revealed his appreciation for Pablo Aimar and Andres D'Allesandro, a duo then based with arch-rivals River Plate. "I just love watching those two," he said. "Why do they have to have to play for River?"

Now FIFA.com wants to put you on the spot: Which arch-rivals did you revere? We're not talking about players who turned out for any other club or country, but ones who specifically turned out for sworn enemies.
