Marginally squeezing past Henry and Bergkamp, Yorke and Cole were doing it for United first.

The pair bagged 53 goals between them in 1998/99 and were pivotal as the Red Devils became the first English side to win the treble. Even if it wasn't them scoring in the final, United simply wouldn't have gotten anywhere near without the relentless goalscoring from the pair.

3. Pele & Garrincha (Brazil)

International football and much older football is a touch tricky to judge, but never as tricky as Pele and Garrincha were in Brazil's golden era.

After Pele carried them to the 1958 World Cup aged 17, he suffered with injuries four years later, paving the way for Garrincha to come into the spotlight. Together, the pair were out of this world. Talent that nobody had ever seen before, culminating in Brazil capturing the 1970 World Cup with some of the finest football you could watch. Mesmerising.
