Many are suggesting that the current Brazil squad is on its way to being the best of all time. I, however, feel that there were other great Brazilian teams capable of challenging the current team (apart from 1970 of course). Below is a list of the best 5 Brazilian NTs ever assembled, imo. Vote and discuss the reasons for choosing a particular Brazilian NT as the best. World Cup 1958: Gilmar, D.Santos, Zito, Bellini, N.Santos, Orlando, Garrincha, Didi, Vava, Pelé, Zagalo World Cup 1970: Felix, Carlos Alberto, Piazza, Brito, Everaldo, Clodoaldo, Gerson, Jairzinho, Tostao, Pelé, Rivelino 1981-82: Waldir Peres, Leandro, Oscar, Luizinho, Junior, Cerezo, Socrates, Falcao, Eder, Zico, Careca (or, Roberto Dinamite) 1997/99: Taffarel, Aldair, Antonio Carlos, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Dunga, F Conceicao, Denilson (or Leonardo or Juninho Paulista), Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Romario 2005-2006: Dida, Cafu, Lucio, Juan, Roberto Carlos, Emerson, Ze Roberto (or Juninho Pernambucano), Kaka, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Adriano PS: In order to get a wider perspective, this thread has not been posted in the Brazil forum.
