There are 100 days to go until the 2018 World Cup begins and talkSPORT.com is counting them down by looking at the competition's most wonderful players.

This list, featuring Pele, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane , looks at the most iconic footballers and their greatest moments – from great goalscorers and majestic defenders to sensational scoundrels and those who just didn’t know the rules.

Kicking us off is Paul Gascoigne, one of England's most talented ever players and we make no apologies for beginning with the man who wore his heart on his sleeve, before blowing much of the contents of his nose into it.

Gazza wasn’t just England’s best player at Italia ‘90 – an irresistible midfield force whose class created the goals that earned the side wins over Egypt, Belgium and Cameroon; he was also the figure whose charm reignited the country’s love affair with its national team. When he picked up the yellow card that ruled him out of a final England never made, we all wept with him.
