Even the greatest players of all times rely on their teammates to make soccer beautiful. The saying “There is no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM’” is perfectly exemplified in a game of soccer.
Sure, there are very exciting plays in history accomplished by individual players. Many people will remember George Weah for the astonishing goal he scored for Milan in 1996. But it is certainly the exception and not the rule. Scoring a goal, especially a beautiful one, usually requires a team effort. The goal scored by Carlos Alberto in the final match against Italy in the 1970 World Cup is the perfect example of this.
