Brazil National Team



“The Selecao” Brazil creates the value of the wonderful beautiful side to the game and have been producing many World legends. However, the talent of many Brazilian players always seem to be compensated of unprofessionalism and inconsistency. Arthur Friedenreich is the first superstar at amateur era in the 1910s,, Leonidas Da Silva followed in the 1930s and Zizinho was much influential to Brazil in the 1940s, and the 1960s saw the greatest footballer of all-time “Pele” who is the only player in history of the game to win three World Cup trophies. Moreover, The 1970 Brazil FIFA World Cup team has been regarded by many as the best team the World has ever seen with the five supreme-class attacker. Zico was expected to succeed Pele in the late 1970s to early 1980s but he failed to make reputable achievement in World Cup final tournament. The tree attackers Rivaldo-Romario-Ronaldo in the 1990s was a main reason of Brazil's three consecutive World Cup finalists. Ronaldinho became the last phenomenon Brazilian superstar in the mid-2000s.

  1. some injustice in this Brazil Socrates should not be left out of the 22 players on the Central Midfielder Roberto Belangero should at least is in third was better than Zito was such that only the crown thanks to an injury to Belangero and Mauro Galvao is one of best defenders in Brazilian football

    1. Whom would you expect to name off to make a space for Socrates ? Zizinho and Rivelino are the two in the same position and do you have reason to support why Socrates should be better ?
      Very Thanks for Roberto Belagero. This is a new name for me and let me search more info about him. For his status as the best DM in history of Corinthians, I am quite sure to name him in anywhere in the list soon.

  5. You're welcome. It's a pleasure to help you.

    I am brazilian, and a football enthusiast. I follow your work, Dearman, from Xtratime forum. Magnificent!

    His raking positions for Brazilian players is very consistent. I agree with almost everything.

    There are some details that need to be fixed, but everything else is very well done.

    For example, in the Edmundo squad of Palmeiras-1993-94 played second forward or right winger. Fiorentina played in the forward, and Vasco-1997, too, when Evair was Centerforward.

    Edmundo was prolific, but never played the striker. Edmundo has come to play until Attacking midfielder.

    Any doubts about Brazilian players may ask.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Players is categorized base on his role and style of play. There was a main striker in front of Edmundo but as I saw Edmundo was rarely supporter or assister, his main duty is usually scoring, always conducting the ball to shot the goal.

  9. OK, i just have another point of view, but it's ok, sorry if i was rude. One more player to search for: Feitiço. He was top scorer of campeonato paulista six times and played for Peñarol, where he won a national championship.

    1. Honesty I’ve never heard of him but he is really a big omission, even much more remarkable than Leonidas in scoring ratio in prime period (216 goals in 150 games). However, he won all topscorers when Brazilian football was still amateur status (the sixth top scorer was achieved in 1931 when professional football was introduced in Brazil in 1933). His 39 goals in 1931 is also a record highest scores in a single Camponato Paulista seasons prior to Pele’s era. Now I name him at 19th Brazilian striker at the first sight.

    4. I even cannot find the career goals stats of Russinho, just found he was a top scorer in Campeonato carioca three times and he was caped only twice for Brazil in the era of normal level competitiveness to win the caps. One of them was selected for the 1930 World Cup match against Bolivia and scored no goal with the team win 4 – 0.

      For Copa America Best XI, I got it from msioux at Bigsoccer.com (available in a few years during 1950s) but cannot remember which thread I picked them. You may ask him in that link ?

      In 1930 the Veado tobacco company sponsored a poll in Brazil to determine who was the nation's favourite footballer. The contest was known as the Concurso Monroe and the prize was a Chrysler sports car. This is pretty impressive as theoretically the game in Brazil was an amateur affair. More aristocratic clubs such as Fluminense kept up this pretense with more vigour than their proletarian neighbours such as Botafogo and Vasco. However, professionalism was not openly accepted until 1933. The results of the poll (and the number of votes is quite staggering) was:


      1.Russinho (Vasco da Gama) 2,900,649
      2. Agostinho Fortes Filho (Fluminense) 2,048,483
      3. Filó (Paulistano) 722,563

      So, Russinho got the car :D

  16. Hello Dearman. Could you explain to me why do you consider Nelinho to be better than Dani Alves? I mean, in that case did you consider just national team performances?
    It sounds a little odd to me, taking into account the quality of Alves and what he's won and represented for Barcelona (one of the best teams in history).
    And does Thiago Silva deserve a spot?

    By the way, I have huge respect for your incredible work!

    1. Actually I have not considered to update status of Alves yet. As he had reached his great level again in 2015, I agree he should have surpassed Nelinho who was limited to play for Brazil.
      As well as Thiago Silva who has been ranked ahead of Ricardo Gomes in my list of top 100 central defenders ever. I'll add him.

    Carlos Alberto could play as center-back so why don't you include him in the starting XI?
