Based on a thread in the Portugal forum, I thought it would be interesting for us to discuss who are Brazil's top 5 rivals in football, so here is my take: 1. Argentina - no further explanations needed; our neighbors, our eternal rivals. Pelé x Maradona. 2. Uruguay - our neighbors too, but it slowed down a bit in the past years, mostly because of Uruguay's own decadence; but there's still the Maracanazzo in 1950. 3. Italy - a lot of history in the World Cup between us; people cannot forget 1982 and Paolo Rossi, but at least we paid it back in the 1994 final. 4. France - if that PK decision in 86 wasn't enough, the 98 final definately sealed it, and the French talked too much during the following 4 years; how the Brazilians enjoyed their sudden elimination in 2002... 5. Paraguay - that's a tough call, because beyond the 4th place there isn't a real rival for Brazil, but since they are our neighbors and we have already fought a war in the past, they are the closest of another south-american rivalry after Argentina and Uruguay.
