Pelé is considered by many the best player in the history of the sport. Talent, fantasy, goals from all invoices, What could we say the king of football that is not known already? With ten in his zamarra, Pele gave fantasy afternoons and evenings during the 60 and the 70, especially with the zamarra Brazil.

Possibly it was ahead of his time. It was four steps ahead of most players of his generation, although he was a contemporary of great geniuses of this sport. In 1958, con 17 years, He had already proclaimed world champion. It was in Sweden and did amaze the world. He won three World Cups in total.

His only mole was perhaps not go racing in Europe. He only left Brazil to play in the New York Cosmos and it was in the twilight of his career.

Mané Garrincha

Mane Garrincha is the best dribbler in the history of Brazil, and possibly soccer. Legend Player, I was able to dribble past anyone who got ahead. Player purely band, conceived football and life as a fun. He lived both.

He had a series of physical and mental handicaps, plus certain addictions, that foreshadowed what would happen with more pain than glory for life. It was not so, on the field every time he caught the ball, something happened. One of the best Brazilian players ever. He had a sad ending.

Didi was part of the Brazil team that won the World Championships 1958 Sweden and Chile in 1962. He played midfield and according to the IFFHS, one of the twenty best players of the twentieth century. Pele and Garrincha partner, He formed alongside these some of the best teams in the history of Brazil. Real Madrid played Alfredo Di Stefano of, but she failed to emphasize with another best ever.


The star swelled to score goals from the late 90s until the end of the first decade of the century. It was one the best pure center forward Brazil's history and possibly the world. His torn potential were memorable, If Ronaldo tore race, It was very difficult to stop you.

Almost he never failed in one hand and his ability to score goals was inhumane. Perhaps serious injuries during his career detracted him. Still he won two World, the first with 17 years as Pele, and was runner-up another. The best striker of football history.

The doctor gave lessons on the lawn. Along with Zico, Falcao Toninho Cerezo, It was a member of one of the teams that played better football but unfortunately football was not fair to them and they failed to win any World.

technical midfielder with excellent ball treatment, his boots were born many of the plays of his team. Socrates and Zico with, He formed a midfield many kilates.


It's one of the top scorers in the history of football. Skillful and the best definition which has ever seen, Romario was able to score three goals in a game and leave the feeling that I had not even moved.

Lethal within the area, It was also known to be lethal in clubs. Say cheerful character, Romario goleaba and off the field. Within the field, they are memorable USA World Cup 94, where it formed a lethal pair with Bebeto, another best players in the history of Brazil.

Leonidas da Silva

It was the first big player in the history of Brazil. Dubbed the black diamond, Brazil played with the world of 1934 y 1938, In the latter being the top scorer of the tournament.
