Maurice Revello Tournament top 100 players : 55th to 51st

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 55th to 51st place.

55th : Paul Gascoigne (England) - 1987 & 1988

The 1987 and 1988 editions marked England's second and third participations in the Maurice Revello Tournament. After finishing fourth in 1987, the Young Three Lions fell to David Ginola and Didier Deschamps' France in the final the following year. A certain Paul Gascoigne, who played in both editions, stood out for his technical range and scored twice, both times against Morocco. The young Newcastle prospect then headed for Tottenham following the 1988 tournament. He won an FA Cup there in 1991, before going on to play for Lazio Roma and Glasgow Rangers, where he won four trophies. Gascoigne won 57 caps for his country.

54th : Carlos Mozer (Brazil) - 1980 & 1981

A memorable double. Winners of the Tournament in 1980 and again in 1981, Brazil pulled off an unprecedented feat in the history of the competition: retaining their title. In 1980, it was a Seleção made up of eleven future internationals that won the tournament. The following year, the emblematic coach Telê Santana led his team to another title. What these two successes had in common was Carlos Mozer. The Brazilian defender, then with Flamengo, was a key figure in this young and talented Auriverde side. It was only six years after the Tournament that he moved to Europe and Benfica, where he spent two spells between 1987 and 1989, and again from 1992 to 1995. In between, he spent three seasons at Olympique de Marseille, where he won three French league titles. He also won two Portuguese league titles with Benfica.

53rd : Adriano Leite Ribeiro (Brazil) - 2002

Twelfth appearance, sixth title. With an average of one win from two appearances, it's not a good time to be taking part in the Maurice Revello Tournament when Brazil are also there. The 2002 edition of the competition was further proof of this. Led by Daniel Alves, Diego Ribas, Maxwell and Adriano, the Seleção won the competition. Scorer of two goals, the Brazilian striker is already well known to football followers, having arrived in Europe, at Inter to be precise, a year earlier. On loan at Fiorentina and then Parma before making his mark at Inter, Adriano has been piling up the goals in Serie A. He also racked up trophies, winning four consecutive Italian league titles between 2006 and 2009 with the Nerazzurri. He also won the Copa America with Brazil in 2004.

52nd : Ludovic Giuly (France) - 1996

Beaten in the final by Brazil in 1995, the French team came to the 1996 Maurice Revello Tournament with a vengeance. Les Bleuets reached the final and had the opportunity to erase the setback they had suffered the previous year, as they were up against... Brazil. But once again, the Seleção punished the French and claimed another title, despite the presence of three future senior internationals, including Ludovic Giuly. The attacking midfielder, who scored two goals during the tournament, was at Olympique Lyonnais at the time. He joined AS Monaco two years later, where he went down in the club's history books: 239 matches, 61 goals, three trophies and a Champions League final in 2003. A competition he won three years later in a Barcelona shirt. Giuly has also played for AS Roma and Paris Saint-Germain, and has 17 caps for the French national team.

51st : James Rodriguez (Colombia) - 2011

In 2011, the Maurice Revello Tournament brought together a top-class line-up including France, Colombia, Portugal, Italy, Mexico and Ivory Coast. As is often the case in the history of the competition, Les Bleuets made it through to the final, only to come up against a talented team with no hang-ups: James Rodriguez's Colombia. Technically superior, the Cafeteros won the Tournament on penalties. The playmaker and captain of the team was voted best player after an outstanding tournament. He won eight trophies with FC Porto before moving on to AS Monaco, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, where he won fourteen titles. Caped 96 times for his country, he also shone in a Colombian shirt, notably at the 2014 World Cup, where he scored an unforgettable goal against Uruguay.
