Viv Anderson has been named one of the most influential footballers of all time alongside David Beckham, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.

The 65-year-old former defender has enjoyed a successful club career, winning two European Cups under legendary Brian Clough, former Nottingham Forest coach.

Anderson, who ended his ten-year stint with Nottingham Forest in 1984, went on to play for clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Sheffield Wednesday.

However, the Nottingham Forest legend made his name in the history books by becoming the first black player to represent England.

FourFourTwo has compiled the Football Legends List, which includes names such as Zinedine Zidane, Antonin Panenka, Diego Maradona and Johan Cruijff.

According to the football magazine, Anderson was not a “token choice” for the Three Lions and was widely expected to “become an England legend”.

They added that the former defender’s English jersey, which dates back to his first appearance against Czechoslovakia in 1978, is on display at the People’s History Museum in Manchester.

Beckham is in the top 50 alongside Manchester United legends Eric Cantona and George Best.

FourFourTwo highlighted the success of the 46-year-old Inter Miami president on and off the pitch, saying he was “perhaps the biggest celebrity in English football”.

Below are the 50 most influential soccer players in the sport’s long history, according to FourFourTwo.
