The Top Ten

1
Pele
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
[Newest]Zico number 5 what a joke and various others, this is based on the latest and has nothing to back it up, only one legend from years ago, how can you have a vote like this when most of the people voting don't have a clue and too young to even have seen other greats that played along side pele through the years, and to say to say neymar that high up an even bigger joke, and to say he's got the skill of messi, who are you kidding, if he was that good wouldn't he have been put in the with Ronaldo and Messi for player of the year ohh no he wasn't, he's got extreme talent but to put him along side the greats already is the stupidest thing I've read, neymar wouldn't be be able to handle yesteryears games but the legends would've scored a lot more goals these days, they was constantly hacked down with career ending tackles they might not have had the pace but look at Barcelona and teams like that, the legends wouldn't need the pace there skill on the ball would win over pace

2Ronaldo
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!

3Ronaldinho
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.

Gaucho is the best but I don't know what happened to him after he left barca but still I regard him as the best there is, was and ever will be because he could do things that other no other player could do. He could juggle the ball and while juggling he could move his leg around the ball like a revolution man that is something and all of a sudden every1 is doing it. He could juggle the ball with his head and his shoulders. He is a great passer of the ball, great scorer and a great free kick taker. I wish to just meet him.

4Kaka
He's is too good in FIFA soccer
Fast, strong and great skill in every aspect of the game. That is all you need.
kaka is the best in the world
messi is good but kaka is fantastic
[newest]
Kaka should be the second after pele. Skills, power, speed and even beauty. he has all the elements to be the best. I think he deserves more than playing with sao paolo fc.

5Zico
Zico was a beast, for me one of the greatest football players of all time!
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.
If he had won a world cup he would be more well known outside of brazil.
[newest]
He was fantastic player.

6Neymar
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.
[newest]
I wonder who is neymar hair stylist because he changes his hair style more often and they are so awesome Love him

7Garrincha
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
[newest]
He was pele's helper. He was a remarkable player.

8Romario
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.
Did you watch 1994 world cup. He was the reason.
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.
More comments about Romario

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.
He'll always be remembered as the player who scored the 105 miles banana free kick for Brazil and the impossible 0°angle goal for Real Madrid.

10Rivelino
Rivellino, Zico, Maradona and Platini: The best midfielders of this game in all time! The difference between then is the Rivellino came first

The Contenders

11Falcao
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.
I love this player cause he dribble most
[newest]
Deserves to be in top 10. he did crossbar challenge in penalty shootout.

13Robinho

Robinho is a great football Player and I think the best Player in AC Milan
One of the best dribblers and ball controllers of all time. pity is has not been included in 2014 squad.

15Sócrates
Simply Put The Greatest One Touch Soccer Player I've Ever Seen. Great Leader Immaculate Ball Control With Superb Vision There's Not Enough Words One Can Use To Describe Such A Great Player. The Only Damper To A Wonderful Career Is Not Winning The World Cup. His 1982 World Cup Team Will Definitely Go Down As The Greatest Team Never To Win The World Cup, They Played Soccer Out Of This World, Soccer That Was Pleasing To The Eye Just A Joy To Look At. One Of The Greatest Of All Time, Such A Simple Ball Player, Gone But Never To Be Forgotten The Player We Called Doctor.R.I.P.
One Of The Greatest Players Of All Time. Smooth Full Of Grace Elegance And Great Leader Who Always Lead By Example. Those Who Saw Him Play Were Blessed To See A True Genius At Work, So Sad He Didn't Win A World Cup For His Beloved Brazil, But A True Visionary Of The Modern Game Who Thrilled The World With His Beautiful Ball Touches Heal Passes And Great Goals. In A Class All By Himself, We May Never See Another Player Like Dr. Socrates.
One of the great soccer players in history yet also became a doctor during his peak of his career. Try that messi.

17Cafu
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.
Cafu is one of the best player for Brazil
Cafu of of the best to 10

18Tostao
One of the greats

19Carlos Alberto Torres
Captained 1970 World Cup winner. Brazil's best right-back.
He scored probably the best goal in World Cup history.

Babeto and Romario were the most lethal combo pair for Brazil in the 1994. they won the World Cup that year for Brazil.

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

41Bernard
Future of Brazil great skills also
He will be a star

42Marcelo Vieira
Well I'm with Brazil in every world cup and will stay till death. But I think that Marcelo is the most stupid player in the history of football. He scored a point in his own goal and didn't do his job of defending in the 2014 world cup. He might show his importance in the team later. But yet, he is pretty much one of the worst players in this world cup.
One of the best left backs in the world. Roberto Carlos named him his successor :D!
Marcelo is trying his best and he is the best left back player respect for him
