The Best of the Best: A selection of the best players who have chosen unique numbers!

ユニークな番号をチョイスした名プレーヤーから選出!

In the world of football, the first number that comes to mind is 1 for goalkeepers and 7 or 10 for aces, but there are some players who have chosen to wear unique numbers.

In this series of articles, we have compiled a list of the 11 best players who have chosen something other than the standard number for their club.

In this series, we’ll be looking at the best 11 players who have chosen something other than the standard number for their club, with commentary on each player.

In this edition of the Football Column, we have chosen the player who wore the number 14, made famous by Johan Cruyff.

The formation is an attacking 3-4-3

ユニークな番号をチョイスした名プレーヤーから選出!

With the image of Dutch and Barcelona legend Claudio Ranieri looming large in the minds of many, it’s easy to see why the players in this list are so attacking.

On the other hand, there are not many goalkeepers or defenders with the number 14, which made it difficult to choose.

We therefore opted for a more attacking 3-4-3 formation. The team’s attackers have more than made up for the lack of defence.

GK: Tim Howard

Tim Howard (former USA international/42 years old)
Number: 1 year (2003-04, Manchester United)

After a long career with Everton and the US national team, Howard is our choice for goalkeeper, and although he only had the number 14 for one year, there are almost no goalkeepers who have worn it.

He has retired and is no longer available for sale on Sorare.

DF: Javier Mascherano

Javier Mascherano (former Argentina international/37 years old)
Career number: 10 years (10-11 to 17-18 / Barcelona, 17-18 to 18-19 / Hebei Foot Ball Club)

On the right of the back three, Mascherano, who played for Liverpool and Barcelona, was selected. The number 14 was worn for a total of ten years, eight in Barcelona and two in China.

He has now retired and is no longer available for sale on Sorare.

DF: Xabi Alonso

Xabi Alonso, former Spanish international (age 39)
Career number: 12 years (04-05 to 08-09 / Liverpool, 10-11 to 14-15 / R. Madrid, 15-16 to 16-17 / Bayern)

Xabi Alonso continued to wear the number 14 at European mega clubs such as Liverpool, R. Madrid and Bayern. He wore the number 14 for the first time in the 2004-2005 season with Liverpool, and has worn it for the last 12 years, having worn a different number in his first season with R. Madrid and Bayern, before switching to 14 in his second season. This time I put him in the centre of the back three that he used to play in during his time at Bayern.

As he has retired, Sorare is no longer selling the card.

DF: Eymeric Laporte

Eymeric Laporte (Spain, 27 years old)
Career number: 5 years (17-18 to present / Manchester City)

The only active member of the defensive line in Guardiola’s Manchester City squad, Spain’s Spain international Aymeric Laporte has been Manchester City’s No.14 for just five years. He is also a distinctive attacking player, but as the other two defenders are not in their day jobs, he needs to contribute in defence.

There are currently no cards on sale at Sorare.

MF: Casemiro

Casemiro (Brazil, age 29)
Career number: 7 years (15-16 – present / R. Madrid)

At the bottom of the midfield, we have Casemiro, who has played for R Madrid and the Brazilian national team, and who first wore the number 14 in the 2015-2016 season, when he became a mainstay on loan from Porto. Since then he has worn the number for seven years without changing it. In the Brazilian national team, Miranda, who played for A. Madrid and Inter, has chosen the number 5 as he has worn it for a long time.

Sorare sells both limited and unique cards, but currently only limited cards are available at auction.

MF: Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson (England, age 31)
Career number: 11 years (11-12 to present / Liverpool)

The captain of Liverpool’s golden era has worn the number 14 for 11 seasons. He has been wearing the number 14 for 11 seasons and should be able to do the same for this team. The England midfielder has become more of a sweatshop, running around the midfield, but when he first joined Liverpool he was a creative type. As such, he wore the number 10 during his time at Sunderland.

Sorare has a range of rare and unique cards for sale, all of which are currently sold out.

MF: Luka Modric

Luka Modric (Croatia, age 36)
Number: 4 years (08-09 – 11-12 / Tottenham)

The Croatian midfielder has been wearing the number 10 for both club and national team for just four years, but his time at Tottenham was so successful that Modric is still associated with the number 14. He will be hoping to continue to use his tactical skills to steer the midfield in this team.

Sorare offers a wide range of cards, from limited to unique, but currently only limited cards are available for auction.

MF: Guti

Guti (former Spain international/44 years old)
Career number: 15 years (97-98 to 09-10/R Madrid, 10-11 to 11-12/Beziktash)

When you think of R. Madrid’s No. 14, you probably think of Guti. After nearly 20 years with the white giants as a first team player, Guti began wearing the number 14 in 1997-1998 when he became a regular fixture. He continued to wear the number for 15 years, the longest stint in this year’s eleven.

As he has retired, Sorare is no longer selling the card.

FW: Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry, former French international (age 44)
Number career: 15 years (99-00-06-07 / Arsenal, 07-08-09-10 / Barcelona, 10-11-13-14 / NY Red Bulls)

For Arsenal fans, the number 14 can only be Thierry Henry. The former French international is a four-time top scorer, including the undefeated 2003-2004 season, and has scored 175 Premier League goals, the most of any player in the club’s history. The Arsenal tradition of having an ace striker wear the number 14 began with this man.

As he has retired, Sorare is no longer selling the card.

FW: Claudio Pizarro

Claudio Pizarro, former Peruvian international, age 43
Career number: 15 years (01-02 to 06-07/Bayern, 07-08/Chelsea, 12-13 to 14-15/Bayern, 15-16 to 16-17 Bremen, 18-19/Bremen, 19-20/Bremen)

The former Peruvian international, who retired at the end of the 2019-2020 season, has worn the number 14 for a long time in the Bundesliga. The former Peruvian international, who retired in the 2019-2020 season, wore number 14 for a long time in the Bundesliga, tying for the most seasons with the team with 15. His commitment to the number 14 can be seen in the fact that he has worn it for more than 10 years, not only for club but also for the national team.

As he has retired, Sorare is no longer selling the card.

FW: Johan Cruyff

Johan Cruyff, former Dutch international
Number career: 4 years (1970-1971 to 1972-1973, 1981-1982/Ajax)
More than just a player who was famous for wearing the number 14, it was Cliffe who made the number 14 famous. There is an anecdote in which he is said to have said, “I will not wear number 9 or 10, but the number 14, which no one else wears”. Whether that’s true or not, it’s hard to argue that 14 is the number that made him famous.

Although he has retired, Sorare has sold a limited number of cards from his Ajax days.

They are all sold out in the auctions already, but you can buy them from individuals who already own them.

The Super Rare card was purchased for 2.672 ETH. That’s a legend!
