As part of this month's World Cup Special, football writer Jim White chooses the men who are indisputably, inarguably, abso-bloody-lutely the best players the World Cup has ever seen.

Hover over the image below to see the players, their awe-inspiring YouTube clips and who Jim thinks comes close to them in Brazil right now.

In this month's World Cup Special:

  • FHM asks Joe Hart what it's like taking spot kicks on the biggest stage.
  • Behold! The FHM WAG Power Index.
  • Alan Shearer tells us what it's like to get on that plane with the rest of the England team.
  • Belgium captain Vincent Kompany talks us through his legendary career.
  • FHM finds the six most sought-after Panini stickers.
  • Author Rob Smyth salutes the greatest squad of mulleted mavericks ever: the Danish team of '86.
  • ...and more awesomness that we can't tell you about because that'd be cheating.
