More than 1700 international players took part in the Toulon Tournament founded in 1967 by Maurice Revello. Many of these players have enjoyed a successful career . Ahead of the 45th edition of the Toulon Tournament (29 May-10 June), we unveil you the best 100 players in the Toulon Tournament history. On the 6th spot, Daniel Passarella.

6. DANIEL PASSARELLA

Born on 25 May 1953
Position :
defender
Played the Toulon Tournament on : 1975

Javier Mascherano, Cafu, Daniel Alves, Didier Deschamps… until now, our top 10 is only composed of defensive players and it will be the same thing for the sixth spot as we have chosen Daniel Passarella.

The solid and elegant defender was part of the Argentina team that won the Toulon Tournament in 1975. True leader, Passarella was the perfect relay between his teammates and his famous coach César Luis Menotti, one of the greatest managers that we saw here in the south of France.

"El Gran Capitan"

Three years after the Toulon Tournament, Daniel Passerrella guided Argentina to their first World Cup title in 1978. The Argentinian captain was impressive throughout the competition and was nicknamed “El Grand Capitan” thanks to his outstanding performances.

And it wasn’t over yet : eight years later, in 1986, the Albiceleste and Daniel Passarella have won again the World Cup.

This is obviously an historic performance : to this day, Daniel Passarella is the only one Argentinian player to boast two World Cup titles. The River Plate legend is one of the most prolific defenders ever as he has scored 178 goals in 550 games during his career. He is also one of the best players in the Toulon Tournament history…
