The Canadian Press Best in 50 Years Footballers

 
In 1950, The Canadian Press selected top athletes in numerous sports. For football (soccer), a list of 16 players were identified, with Dave Turner selected the best from the first 50 years of the century. As one might expect, the list did meet some contention, with journalists suggesting other great names that could or should have been recognised.
