Maurice Revello Tournament top 100 players : 70th to 66th

On the occasion of its 50th edition, which will take place from 3 to 16 June 2024, the Maurice Revello Tournament is opening its history book. Since it was founded in 1967, the competition has seen many talented players. More than 2,000 have gone on to become senior internationals, and some of them have written football history. To celebrate its anniversary, the Tournament is updating its top 100, created in 2017. Until 29 March, our website will be displaying the updated rankings of the 100 greatest players to have taken part in the Tournament. And it continues today, with the rankings from 70th to 66th place.

70th : Dirk Kuyt (Netherlands) - 1999

France, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico... The 1999 Maurice Revello Tournament line-up was extremely strong. In the face of such adversity, the Dutch could do no better than fifth place. The team included four future senior internationals, including Dirk Kuyt. The striker was just at the start of a successful career that took him to Feyenoord, Liverpool and Fenerbahçe. He won a total of six trophies with these clubs, scoring almost 250 goals. An international on 104 occasions, he is the sixth most capped player in the Oranje's history.

69th : Leonardo (Brazil) - 1990

With eight players who have gone on to become senior internationals, the Brazilian generation who competed in the Maurice Revello Tournament in 2000 is undoubtedly one of the most gifted the Tournament has ever seen. Third in the final ranking, the Seleção included Cafu and Leonardo. The latter was a young player from Flamengo at the time, and was about to embark on a rich career. After spells with Valencia, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Kashima Antlers, the midfielder toured the world, winning ten trophies. In 60 appearances for Brazil, he won the World Cup in 1994 and the Copa America in 1997, before becoming a brilliant manager after his professional career with Milan and PSG.

68th : Ederson Moraes (Brazil) - 2014

Winners of the Maurice Revello Tournament in 2014, Brazil owed this success largely to their defense. In addition to a pair of centre backs made up of Marquinhos and Matheus Doria, the Seleção could count on an imperious goalkeeper: Ederson. Imposing in goal and accurate in his footwork, the keeper was a great prospect for Brazilian football and for his club, Benfica. In 2017, the Lisbon club sold its goalkeeper at a high price to Manchester City, where Ederson became an irremovable member of Pep Guardiola's system. In 317 matches, he won a total of fifteen trophies, including the Champions League in 2023 and five Premier League titles.

67th : Christophe Dugarry (France) - 1992

It was not yet known, but at the 1992 Maurice Revello Tournament, two future 1998 world champions were part of the French team competing that year. Third in the final rankings, the French team included Lilian Thuram and Christophe Dugarry. Dugarry, considered a rising star at Bordeaux, scored a goal during the tournament. It was with Girondins that the striker enjoyed his best years, scoring 62 goals in 324 games in the space of two spells at the club. During his career, he also wore the shirts of Olympique de Marseille, FC Barcelona and AC Milan, as well as that of Les Bleus, with whom he became world and then European champion in 2000.

66th : Steve McManaman (England) - 1991

In 1991, Alan Shearer dazzled the Tournament with his talent. England won the tournament hands down, and the striker finished top scorer and best player of the tournament. But in the shadow of the future top scorer in the history of the Premier League, a midfielder also shone. Steve McManaman was only 19 at the time, but he already had the class and touch that would make him an outstanding player. A true Liverpool legend with 364 appearances and 66 goals in nine seasons, he won three titles with the Reds before joining Real Madrid. With Los Merengues, he again added to his trophy cabinet with eight titles, including two Champions Leagues.
