Brazil Soccer Team Wallpaper&Pictures
To complete a great year (2004), Brazilian star Ronaldinho (Barcelona) was elected the 2004 FIFA Player of the Year. At the youth level, Brazil was recently crowned their third FIFA U-17 World Championship Title in the last 4 editions of the tournament, with a mixture of the same ingredients that have seen them re-emerge as the dominant soccer nation at the professional level: strong defense, physical endurance, technical proficiency, excellent goalkeeping, and extraordinary skill.
They are the only team to have qualified for every single FIFA World Cup. Currently ranked second by FIFA, Brazil is generally considered to be the strongest football nation in the world and is the only team to have played in every World Cup.
In Germany 2006, Ronaldo becomes the World Cup's leading scorer of all time after beating Gerhard Mller's record of 14 goals. I believe it's normal for players like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka to play for the world's most powerful clubs. Ronaldo and Pele have last names but they are so famous their last names are not necessary.
Great idols of soccer such as Pele, Garrincha, Zico, Romrio, Ronaldo, and many others from lower social classes started playing soccer on dirt fields under poor conditions.
Of the former Magic Quartet, Ronaldinho and Kaká were the only players who had a regular place in the Brazil squad.

Kaka, 25, won the award by just one vote over Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi of Barcelona soccer club in Spain. Kaka, who is expected to sign with AC Milan until 2013, is headed for a monster contract signing, ensuring that he will be a part of footballing history to come. The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) named Kaka Ricardo Izecson as Best Player of 2007, in a poll in which coaches and national soccer team captains participated, and he received twice as many votes as Messi and Brazilian soccer striker Ronaldo.

The Brazilian style of play was so unique that traditional soccer fans everywhere took notice. I realize that most of the American kids are not brought up with the Brazilian culture, but the Brazilian style of Football (soccer) is the most attractive and I think that the American Coaching Culture needs to try to adopt it and try to encourage the Brazilian flair in our young players.
The Brazil team of 1958 and many teams after them played a free-flowing soccer that gave rise to the typical “Brazilian” style. This style originally came about as soccer was brought to the country from England, explains Vickery. Playing this new style, Brazil was very successful and this led to international triumphs and international recognition for a nation that was starved for both.
The most famous forwards in Brazil's soccer history, Edson Arantes do Nascimento and Manuel Francisco dos Santos, are better known as Pele and Garrincha.
Brazil is the most successful team in World Cup history.
