The Masters of Soccer

The Brazilian supremacy is unanimous around the world. We have the best players on the planet. For the last 12 years, seven Brazilians have been elected best player of the world by  Fifa(1) (Federation Internationale de Football Association).Ronaldinho in England

In 2005, Ronaldinho Gaucho, a Barcelona Club player, was first and Ronaldo, also a Barcelona Club player, was third. Ronaldo was elected best player in 1996, 1997 and 2002.

Brazilian athletes playing in Europe have been accomplishing great results in the strongest and largest Europeans clubs. The present generation of Brazilís players is one of the best in the past few decades.

It is a of mix young men with outstanding talent and potential like Robinho, Kaka, Adriano amongst others, with successful and mature athletes like Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and so on. It is a powerful combination.

In the clubs world championship, Sao Paulo Football Club defeated Liverpool, from England. Besides that, Sao Paulo is also South American Champion.

In June, at the World Cup in Germany 2006, the gods of football will be reunited in one of the biggest parties on earth and will decide if, once more, the  canarinhos(2) will be crowned emperors in the world of soccer.
