Football Legend George Best passed away on November 25th. He was capped 37 times for Northern Ireland, and is mainly famous for his time with Manchester United. He played mainly as a winger and was known for his dribbling skills and passing. Diego Maradona has frequently named Best as his all-time favorite player and Pelé once stated that Best was the best player he ever saw play. He also named him as one of the 125 best living footballers in his 2004 FIFA 100 list.

He developed a drinking problem while still a player and was unable to give up alcohol for any length of time. This contributed to his early retirement from top-level football and ultimately led to his death at the age of 59. One of his famous quotes is "In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol. It was the worst 20 minutes of my life." Best's funeral was the largest Northern Ireland has ever seen.

Here a video clips of Best's Performance. Just notice at 3:17 position of this video clip- What an amazing goal he scored!!!
