One of the most unheralded positions on the pitch, the left back, has throughout the decades produced some of the biggest icons.
With the number 3 on their backs, heroes such as @oficialrc3 and @paolomaldini have anchored defenses and gloriously led their clubs and countries to triumph.
A proper left back storms the flank contributing on both ends of the field. They attack, they defend. They have flair and pace and, as history has shown us, an ability to change and dictate games with panache.
We salute these magicians of yore and celebrate the current crop of left backs holding with the culture and thriving as a number 3.
