Maurice Revello Tournament top 100 players : 60th to 56th

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 60th to 56th place.

60th : Oscar Ruggeri (Argentina) - 1983

Following in the footsteps of 1975, when they came to the Maurice Revello Tournament to prepare for their World Cup three years earlier, Argentina did it again in 1983. With three years to go before another World Cup, the Albiceleste took part in the Tournament in order to train the young generation of players likely to contest the 1986 World Cup. Although they did not enjoy the same success as in 1975, losing to France in the final, they did win the world title three years later. The world champion team included four players from the 1983 squad, including Oscar Ruggeri. The Boca Juniors defender went on to enjoy an eventful career, moving to rivals River Plate in 1985. He also spent a season with Real Madrid, winning a total of 97 international caps and seven major club titles.

59th : Nicolas Anelka (France) - 1997

In 1997, a talented French team won the Maurice Revello Tournament with five victories from as many games. Eleven players from this generation went on to become senior internationals. Among them was Nicolas Anelka. The striker formed a formidable trio with Thierry and David Trezeguet. Scorer of two goals during the Tournament, the PSG player established himself as a great prospect in the making. In the wake of the Tournament, he joined Arsenal and then Real Madrid two seasons later. His career also took him to other major clubs such as Chelsea, Juventus and Liverpool. He won a total of eleven trophies, including the Champions League with Real in 2000.

58th : Pablo Aimar (Argentina) - 1996

Argentina's fourth-place finish at the 1996 tournament was not their best performance at the Maurice Revello Tournament. Although they were held to a draw by the Netherlands and Russia, the Albiceleste did manage two wins over France and Colombia. Not enough to climb onto the podium. Five players from this squad went on to become internationals, including Pablo Aimar. The elegant midfielder then made his debut at River Plate, his childhood club. He stayed there for five seasons before heading to Europe, where he played for Valencia, Zaragoza and Benfica. A winner of fourteen trophies at club level, he also won the Under-20 World Cup a year after the tournament and amassed 52 caps for Argentina.

57th : James Milner (England) - 2005

In 2005, England finished an honourable third at the Maurice Revello Tournament. Beaten in the semi-final by France, they reached the podium thanks to a penalty shoot-out victory over Mexico. James Milner was only nineteen at the time and had no idea that he was to become a longevity monster. Almost twenty years later, he is still playing today. His all-British career has included spells with Leeds, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Liverpool. In addition to his almost 900 appearances, Milner can boast twelve titles, including a Champions League triumph with Liverpool in 2019. He also has 61 caps for the Three Lions.

56th : Andoni Zubizarreta (Spain) - 1981

Spain took part in the Maurice Revello Tournament for the first time in 1981. It was not necessarily a glorious debut for La Rojita, who finished last in the competition after drawing one and losing three of their four games. Andoni Zubizarreta was part of that team. The goalkeeper was at Deportivo Alavès at the time, but moved to Athletic Bilbao in the wake of the Tournament. With the Basque club, he won four titles, including a league and cup double in 1984. He then moved to Barcelona, where in eight seasons he made over 400 appearances and won eleven trophies, including the Champions League in 1992. With 126 international caps to his name, he is currently the sixth most-capped player in the history of the Spanish national team.
