In recent football history, there are plenty midfielders to compete for the title of the greatest. From Nedved and Seedorf to Xavi and Iniesta, the comparisons among the fans are frequent and demonstrate the difficulty of answering that question. One of the modern players, who can easily be compared with the legends of the past, is Toni Kroos.

When the question about the best football player of our days is set to the average fan, all the thoughts are running around the same, standard names. The Messi or Ronaldo dipole is very rarely interrupted by the name of Neymar Jr. and no other serious competitors remain for the title of the greatest. Although many talents, such as Kylian Mbappé, are popping up lately, the truth is that many important players, who could claim that title, have appeared over the last 2-3 years. One of these is named Eden Hazard.
