Ronaldoh's Greatest World Cup Winners 11- Brazil
Brazil's greatest World Cup Winners
The mighty Brazil have so far won the World Cup five times. I have chosen my best 11 players from their World Cup winning sides.
To be fair I have only chosen players from 1970 onwards as most of my memories of football begin from that era. After researching Garrincha and Djalma Santos, terrific players they were,but I don't feel I have seen enough myself to warrant their inclusion.
- Claudio Taffarel.1994 winning keeper, conceded only 3 goals.
- Carlos Alberto.Captain of the triumphant 1970 team.
- Lucio.Played inevery game of the 2002 tournament, and getting better.
- Cafu.Most capped Brazilian player of all time.
- Gerson. Man of the match in the 1970 final.
- Rivelino.A creative heartbeat of the 1970 team.
- Jairzinho. Scored in every round in Mexico.
- Pele.Three times World Cup winner.
- Rivaldo.Play maker and great goalscorer.
- Ronaldo. All time leading World Cup scorer with 15 goals.
- Romario." King of the penalty box" and star of 1994 triumph.
It would have to beMario Zagallo was the first person to win the World Cup as both a player and coach he played in the 1958 and1962 teams and managed the 1970 team.
Well do you agree let me know if you can think of a better 11
Many people would agree the best Brazilian triumphs came in 1958 and 1970, their 1st and 3rd World Cup victories.
