They are definately in the conversation. Again, it comes down to not being able to compare across eras. The 1970+ Brazillian team was amazing. Followed by the Dutch "Total Futbal" teams. Throw in the Argentinian teams of the late 70's/early 80's, then the West German squads of the late 80's. Tough call. I will say this. If...and I mean a BIG IF, Spain wins the WC in 2014 in Brazil. They will have to be put at the front of the line. No European team has EVER won a WC in South America. They do that, it will cement them as the greatest ever.
