    Actually several: Beckenbauer, Pele, Maradona have led their teams to win the World Cup.  People who say Messi was the greatest must be very young and have not seen these giants. Leading the world cup winner is still the main measurement, even more important than club football.

    Pele and Johan Cruyff both basically changed the game. Pele was the sports first true global superstar and his impact on the game cannot be understated. He helped usher in the modern culture of players basically becoming global celebrities. I think the way to put it is that people in the future will be able to do what Lionel Messi did in football. However no one will be able to have the same impact on the game that Pele did.

    Pele certainly can for one.
