From Pele to Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane to Ronaldo, titans of the beautiful game have graced the FIFA World Cup™ since 1930. But who do you think is the all-time greatest to have featured at the global finals?

As we draw ever closer to Russia 2018, it's time for you to take yet another trip down memory lane with FIFA.​

After a recent social media vote to decide the World Cup’s greatest team, which was won by Uruguay’s Maracanazo marvels of 1950, we want to know who you think is the World Cup’s greatest ever player!

Starting Saturday 26 May at midday CET, we will be pitting 32 World Cup legends against one another in a bracket vote, with the final set to take place on Sunday 3 June – and you can take part in the voting on the official FIFA World Cup Twitter account.

The bracket will start with 32 legends, move to a Round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals, before narrowing down to a final two.

Who will be crowned the World Cup’s greatest player? There will be huge debate. But no trophy! Fans young and old are set to once again enjoy seeing some vintage archive World Cup content.

Remember; you, the fans, will decide our winner! Visit the official FIFA World Cup Twitter account today.
