5.-  Juan Roman Riquelme

As arguably one of the most talented playmakers in football history, Juan Roman Riquelme was very unfortunate to be born in an era where Lionel Messi was too young.

If they had more time to play together, perhaps Argentina would’ve won more World Cup titles with those two at their best.

Riquelme is Boca Juniors’ most important player in history, and he is also one of the most successful.

Despite not having as many accolades as some of the other players from the list, Riquelme is easily the best Argentine player from his generation.
