ANTOINE GRIEZMANN played with some pretty decent players in his day, it’s fair to say.

And he supports them to remain undefeated despite two notable absences.

The forward even chose to go WITHOUT a goalie on his all-star team.

Speaking to Oh My Goal, Griezmann spoke about his side: “I would go with Ousmane Dembele and I would say NG, N’Golo Kante because you never lose when he’s in your team.

“I would take Godin because he always finds a way to cheat and win!

“I picked three, right? It’s four for me. And the last person, David Beckham. No goalkeeper. An open goal!”

That means there is no place in the squad for France teammate Kylian Mbappe.

However, when asked who the most skillful player was, Griezmann answered either Mbappe or fellow Frenchman Dembele.

The Atleti star also said that Diego Costa is the best player he has ever played with, saying: “I would say to Diego Costa for the support he gives me on the field.

“Because he allows me to play freely. He’s a guy I work really well with on the pitch.

“We understand each other at a glance, we know where we both stand.

“He’s also a fighter and brings out what I love in me. You rarely get that in a teammate.”

Surprisingly, Griezmann said the best player he’s encountered on a soccer field is Dutch midfielder Frenkie De Jong, who now plays for Barcelona.

The Dutchman is now a teammate at Barcelona.

But Griezmann said former Real Madrid defender Pepe is the most difficult to play.

Griezmann added: “I tried to put pressure on De Jong and I never succeeded.

“Pepe is always breathing down your neck. He’s always above you and he’s a hard-to-flip player.”

But the world champion was very on the fence when asked to settle the ongoing debate.

“Best player of all time? Well you know… It depends on the era but I would say either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I’ve never seen how Diego Maradona and Pele played. It’s a difficult question, everyone has their own style.

“There’s also Zinedine Zidane. Zidane won the World Cup, Messi and Ronaldo never.”

Finally, Griezmann made a shock selection when asked to pick his best footballing memory.

Although he helped France win the World Cup in 2018, he didn’t choose to.

Instead, he said: “When we moved to the first division with Real Sociedad [2009/10].

“It was honestly the first time my knees were shaking because it was my freshman year and the atmosphere was amazing. It was all new to me and it was intimidating.”
