Top Ten Best Brazilian Soccer Players

The Top Ten

1 Pele Pele Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as "Pelé", is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward. He is one of the best players in football, hence why he's nicknamed the "king of football".

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

Really gifted no hype

2 Ronaldo Ronaldo

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 my favorite soccer player.

3 Ronaldinho Ronaldinho Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, commonly known as Ronaldinho or Ronaldinho Gaúcho, is a retired 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

Show me a player who can/could do what this man did with a ball?

4 Zico

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.

A supreme footballer, who remains adventurous after his playing career.

5 Neymar Neymar Neymar 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. ...read more.

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 will greater than pele in times.

7 Garrincha Garrincha Manuel Francisco dos Santos, known by the nickname Garrincha, was a Brazilian footballer who played right winger and forward.

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

8 Romario Romario Romário 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.

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.

There might habe been better all round players. But, Romario is the greatest forward to ever play. His traps were feathery soft. His passes and shots were pin point. Best shot to goal ratio ever.

9 Rivelino

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

Simply the best after pele...

Well he is relly good...

Should be second place after pelé

10 Roberto Carlos Roberto Carlos Roberto 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

The Contenders

11 Jairzinho

Best attacking right back in his era

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

Was key to Brazil's world cup win in 1970

Because his shooting is epic. his speed is fantastic

12 Falcao

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

Ummm... I'm pretty sure falcao is from Colombia

14 Sócrates

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.

Magician

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.

16 Cafu

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!

20 Carlos Alberto Torres

Legendary Defender

The invicible wall

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.

21 Thiago Silva Thiago Silva Thiago Emiliano da Silva, commonly known as Thiago Silva, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a central defender for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazilian national team.

Thiago Silva is one of the best defenders in history... I think he should definitely be in top 10... Maybe top 5

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

True, he really is the best player in the world and the captain of Brazil national football team. I think he should be the 7th.

He's simply the best defender in the world

22 Marcelo 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

Should be lower than David Luiz
