The Top Ten

Pele won 3 world cups with Brazil. He was voted Player of the century in 2000. He scored 77 Goals in 92 Games. A sensational
dribbler with an unstoppable shot. He scored
1243 Goals in his carer More than any else and
he scorred 12 world cup goals in 14 games
I asked 100 people who the best ever Player is for them 94 said pele 3 said maradona 1
said Johan Cruyff 1 said Garrincha and 1 said
Zinedine Zedane. The End
He was by far the best football player ever to grace this planet so good that when he touched the ball I was always a fantastic trick or amazing shot in an interview a defender at Red Bulls said in 1977 Pele is the the hardest person to get the ball of in football. In a match you need at least three men marking him all the the time or else he'll score a 100 goals before you can say hallelujah. When he's got the ball you need to tackle in the first seconds or else he won't be stopped.
He's the best player ever he's so good that he won everything that a player dreams of winning did you see his narrow miss from miles out of the box. Best shot football has ever seen

I think that Ronaldo is the best player in the Brazilian soccer team because he had the scores when I was watching the soccer games and I really liked him the best because he had the best strikes and he was good as a goalie and he was a really good defense and offense players.!

Hope some people agree with me, and if they don't maybe they should post a comment about why they disagree with me and who they think is the best Brazilian player!
Beautiful, delicate and skilful dribbler, but powerfully inventive with a devastating finish. Best striker ever!
Zidane, Mourinho and Bobby Robson said he was the best player of all time and thats coming from 3 Legends!


More comments about Ronaldo

He is another level of professional soccer player. He can do what others can't. He show what is impossible be possible if it comes to him. And more importantly, HE SMILE! JOY OF SOCCER CARVED INTO HIS FACE!
What he did was just out of his world! A simply a GOD! 1O times better then pele and ronaldo! He's smile and skills will never be seen again... A perfect example of how soccer should be played. HE BRINGS BACK THE SAMBA!
When I start selecting my top ten soccer player in the world. Don;t put Ronaldinho first, because He is the highest soccer player. He is not even in those top ten. Ronaldinho is has the another level of professional experiences. When you are making you list Start Ronaldinho, then go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, because that is the only List will sound good.


More comments about Ronaldinho

Fast, strong and great skill in every aspect of the game. That is all you need.
He's is too good in FIFA soccer
kaka is the best in the world
messi is good but kaka is fantastic
More comments about Kaka

If he had won a world cup he would be more well known outside of brazil.
One of the worlds best players, just not very famous, I think this is because he didn't win a world cup.

But his control and passing was second to none in my opinion.
Zico was a beast, for me one of the greatest football players of all time!

Neymar is very young only 19 years old, he has potential to become the best in the world.
Neymar is very tricky, fast and a great dribbler. Similar to Ronaldinho and Brazil Ronaldo.
Neymar has the speed of Ronaldo and the skill of Messi he will become the best player in the world.
Must be worth more than 1 percent Seriously, its Neymar we are talking about.

Garrincha won almost by himself 1962 world cup and was very important for 1958 too. His career was early interrupted due to drinking problens, otherwise he would have an even upper position in the all time best players of the world. Until now no one has ever played in a style similar to his. No one has ever dribeled like him so far.
The angel of the crooked legs
Best ever. No doubt
More comments about Garrincha

I'm a PSV fan in the Netherlands and he played for that team. And never saw such a great player as Romario. That was really art. Sorry to say but in my opinion a mutch better striker then Ronaldo that also played for PSV eindhoven.
Romario is surely the best, he won the 1994 wc for brazil single-handedly ( pele and ronaldo has got a great team when the won the world cup ), he was a genius within the penalty box and can score from any corner and also could assist in many goals.
Did you watch 1994 world cup. He was the reason.

9Roberto Carlos
Roberto carlos was one of the best player in the world because he helped brazil a lot
One of greatest brazilian players. His also helped Brazil win the 2002 world cup, specially with his bannana freekick.

I think the rivaldo is on of the greatest football players of all time and the best footballer playing the game
The greatest attacking midfielder ever I have been seen...
Rivaldo was a legend of Brazilian foot ball
More comments about Rivaldo

The Contenders

Rivellino, Zico, Maradona and Platini: The best midfielders of this game in all time! The difference between then is the Rivellino came first

3# time Brazilian league champ
This guy turned, almost single handedly, two "mediocre" sides in huge clubs, first Internacional in Brazil, then Roma in Italy. If you don't believe me check out the results of these clubs, before and after Falcao. He was the game changer.

Best attacking right back in his era

Cafu proved that hi is one of the best captain in the world in the world cup 2002. He combined all the team through out all the tournament.

Oscar is a brilliant player and is really skillful

16David Luiz
David is the most hottest players I know and love
Best in the world

One of the great soccer players in history yet also became a doctor during his peak of his career. Try that messi.

His dribbling is amazing and has played along side the worlds best players so he has learned a few things

Typical brazilian striker not the next ronaldo or pele still young only 26 and has time to score more goals when he scored against oman that was his 6th in 4 internationals

20Alexandre Pato
He is one of the most unforgottable guy in the entry unverse




24Julio Cesar
I think he is the best brazilian goalkeeper OF ALL TIME
One of the best Brazilian goalkeapers if not the best. Helping them to get the 2009 and 2013 confederation cups.

25Lucas Leiva

He will captain Liverpool and he will captain Brazil at the next world cup in 2014

26Thiago Silva
T. Silva is the best defender in the world, I think He should be in a higher position in this list
He is the best defender

27Luís Fabiano
Fabiano for the win

28Gilberto Silva

I can't believe no one added him here. He was an awesome striker, maybe not a top 10 but probably a top 30.

30Denílson de Oliveira Araújo

31Doca Madureira

One his own kind. Free kicks master of century.

He's just a class playler and he is tottenham s best defender I ❤

34Mario Jardel
Mario Jardel knows well where and when in a position. He scores in one touch usually.
Real Madrid fans know well that Super Mario Jardel made GALATASARAY have a SUPER CUP against R. Madrid.


He was one of the great midfield maestro planet earth has ever produceHe is best among the rest and I give him No.5

37Nick Foster

38Arthur Friedenreich
More goals than pele in less games.

39Camilo Sanvezzo


Future of Brazil great skills also

42Marcelo Vieira
One of the best left backs in the world. Roberto Carlos named him his successor :D!

Gonna be great player for Brazil

44Frederico Chaves Guedes

A very hard and skillfull player
I think Hulk is a best and skillfull player.very amazing

46Raul Plassmann

He is very active and skilfull midfielder.

Very strong right back. He took over Ronaldo Portugal.

49Alexsandro de Souza
He is a Fenerbahce SK's legend. Amazing maestro!
The player who actually play only with his brain
