#14 on the list

14. Alessandro Del Piero - Italy
Date of birth: 9 Nov 1974
Height: 173 cm
Weight: 73 kg
Position: Forward
Current Club: Juventus (ITA)

When the young Alessandro Del Piero joined Juventus, he was a
physically slight man; he had to work hard to build muscle strength and
speed. A combination of these new found attributes, outstanding technique
and an eye for goal, soon earned him the nickname Pinturicchio - after the
Renaissance painter. Actually, we think he'd be much better suited as a
painter's subject..
