Top Ten Best Brazilian Soccer Players

The Top TenXW

1PeleEdson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pelé, is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward.

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

He was fantastic and to this day will still keep his reputation.

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! - mikeyeggo

He is one of those players who can just turn nothing into something.

3RonaldinhoRonaldo de Assis Moreira, commonly known as Ronaldinho or Ronaldinho Gaúcho, is a Brazilian footballer.

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. - msa

Next to Pele, he's the best ever

4Zico

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!

If he had won a world cup he would be more well known outside of Brazil.

Best footballer ever

5KakaRicardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaká or Ricardo Kaká, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer and the Brazil national team.

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

His skill on the ball is brilliant and at his best his blistering pace is enough to outrun the fastest defenders... Also a goal scoring threat and possesses incredible vision... Enough said!

Great passes and assists

6Garrincha

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.

I voted for Garrincha because he's too low down on the list. He should be no.2 The best dribbler ever and won the 62 world cup on his own for Brazil when Pele was injured.

Garrincha might have died young because of drug use and alcohol but in my opinion he is as good (better) as pele

Garrincha was very skilful and speedy, even though his left leg was shorter than his right one!

7NeymarNeymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team.

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.

He's the best skills I barely can do

8RomarioRomário de Souza Faria, known simply as Romário, is a Brazilian politician, who previously achieved worldwide fame as a footballer.

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.

The best striker ever

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

10Roberto CarlosRoberto Carlos da Silva Rocha, more commonly known simply as Roberto Carlos, is a Brazilian retired footballer.

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. - phantomtheimmortal

Beast free kicks

The Contenders

11Falcao

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

12Jairzinho

Best attacking right back in his era

Only player to score in every match at a world cup.

13Rivaldo

I think the rivaldo is on of the greatest football players of all time and the best footballer playing the game

Rivaldo was a legend of Brazilian foot ball

The greatest attacking midfielder ever I have been seen...

He was the lonely hero in the national team and Barcelona. Handles the whole team over his shoulders.

14Sócrates

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.

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

I thought he was greek

15Robinho

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

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.

16Cafu

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.

If you think that Dani Alves is good, you should have seen Cafu at his peek. He bombed up and down the wing and was unstoppable at the World Cup 2002!

Cafu is one of the best player for Brazil

As well as Pele, Cafu is one of the only players top have lifted the trophy 3 times!

18Carlos Alberto Torres

Captained 1970 World Cup winner. Brazil's best right-back.
He scored probably the best goal in World Cup history.
There can't be a conversation about the world best soccer
Players without the name CARLOS ALBERTO TORRES... Period.
