    being a top assister in 2006 world cup yet no one or just a few mention his name (his first chance & the only chance he got to play in wc)

    almost brought argentina to semi vs italy until being subbed vs germany, very unlucky

    very underated in 2006 World Cup

    I agree Riquleme in his best was a close complete AM/playmaker very similar to Maradona at WC and Napoli.

    It's juts a bit unfortunate that his PEAK was a bit short - 05-08

    even in his non- peak period, his performance is still one of the best
