#2 Cafu (Captain)

Cafu Brazil World cup


Captain of the amazing 2002 World Cup winning squad, Cafu with 142 appearances is the most internationally capped Brazil male player of all time. He also represented his nation in four FIFA World Cups from 1994-2006 playing three consecutive finals and winning the 1994 and 2002 editions. Widely considered to be one of the greatest right-backs of all time, Cafu was playing for Serie A side Roma in 2002 and was even named in the 2002 FIFA XI.


After a widely successful spell at Roma, Cafu moved to AC Milan where he continued performing at the very highest level even winning the Champions League in 2007 with the Italian giants. The legendary Brazilian finally retired from football in 2008 at the age of 38 although his marauding runs down the flank are still remembered fondly by his fans all over the world.

Most recently, Cafu was seen playing in India for Goa’s futsal team in the Premier Futsal League.

#3 Lucio


Lucio Brazil 2002


One of only three players (along with Marcos and Cafu) to complete playing all 630 minutes of the tournament, then 24-year-old Lucio was a rock at the heart of the defence for the Selecao. Lucio was playing for Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen in 2002.


Following his impressive performances, Lucio secured a move to Bayern Munich before moving to Serie A giants Inter Milan. At Inter, the centre-back won a Champions League title beating his former club Bayern Munich in the final. Lucio led the Brazil team to Confederations Cup glory in 2009 and he last played for the national team in 2011.

Most recently, Lucio played as the marquee player for Indian Super League side FC Goa.
