MIAMI, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- Terra presents the special sports coverage "Jugadores Numero 10," celebrating the most renowned soccer players of all time in anticipation of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. The new soccer hub sponsored by BlackBerry, commemorates legends such as Maradona, Messi, Pele, Platini, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Valderrama, Zico and Zidane, among others, who have revolutionized the game and have broken records throughout their professional careers.
As part of the special coverage, the world-famous Mexican icon and one of the best No. 10 soccer players of all time, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, will cover the most important soccer tournaments in the world, providing a unique perspective and sharp opinion in his new blog "Cuauhtemoc's Word." Cuauhtemoc is an important and outspoken figure in the history of Mexican sports that opened the doors for many Mexican soccer players to play for European teams. He is considered the all-time star player in the history of "Club America," the most popular Mexican professional soccer club, and has been awarded the "Most Valuable Player of the Mexican First League Division" five times in his soccer career.
"The endless discussion of who is the best player in history, or rather, who is better between Maradona and Pele, the most famous No. 10s in soccer history, always creates controversy. However, in my opinion Lionel Messi has already surpassed both players, despite his young age and considering the time he plays in, when it is more challenging to play good soccer," said Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
Sport fanatics continue to debate over the best player of all time who has worn the legendary No. 10 jersey. You will now have the opportunity to select your favorite player by participating in an interactive poll that will allow you to vote for your top 10 and see the most-voted athletes.
Thanks to BlackBerry you will also have the chance to win a trip for two to a World Cup qualifying game by sharing who your favorite soccer player is using the hashtag #MovingForwardWithBlackberry.
