Alfredo di Stefano was considered by many the greatest player of all time. He was a player with extraordinary versatility and incredible stamina. Although generally referred to as a center-forward, he played in defence, midfield and the forward line.

Di Stefano was the inspiration behind Real Madrid's five successive European Cups. He scored a goal in each of the first four finals and a hat-trick in the fifth, which resulted in a 7-3 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Di Stefano's amazing fitness allowed him to be defending one moment and pop up on the edge of the opposition's area to score a goal the next.

Alfredo Di Stefano played international football for both Argentina and Spain, but for various reasons beyond his control, never made it to a World Cup final.
