There are 89 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 greatest moments from the most iconic footballers – from great goalscorers and majestic defenders to sensational scoundrels and those who just didn’t know the rules.

89) Diego Forlan: Uruguay, forward (2002, 2010 and 2014)

Endearingly hapless at Manchester United but dynamite in shooting Atletico Madrid to Europa League glory, Forlan stood out in South Africa in 2010 as the first player to truly know what the hell to do with the unpredictable Jabulani ball. It got him five goals (three from outside the area), and saw him deservedly named player of the tournament.

talkSPORT will be in Russia to bring you all the best action when the 2018 World Cup begins in June.
