I wrote many of them by last names, as is usually accepted in Jetpunk, but names like Pirlo, Casillas, Totti and many others were not accepted.

Thank you!

Thank you, now the names find their places!

PS. On my list Batistuta would be high as superb finisher, not only on the 90s but also on the early 00s.

Crazy that guys like Pires, Inzaghi didn't make the list. Also, Rooney was 100% better than Ibra in the 2000s.
