Besides Deco and Petkovic, I recall two polish dudes that played a little for Atletico-Pr, keeper for yogoslavia that stayed around small clubs of Minas, Orsi (i think) that played for Palmeiras-Parmalat age. Back in the past there is more, like a group of swedish players in 60's, hungarians in the 50's with the coaches, and waaay back, british, italians and portuguese players. But no idea about the numbers.

He was just a part of the Parmalat deal.

Deco? Haha, might as well throw in Liedson too.

Figueroa was probably hands down the best foreigner to have played in Brazil.

Well, from the top of my head I can already say that you forgot Walter Gomez (Uruguay; River Plate). But, already a great initiative. You can improve this team by researching in this great blog: http://futbolistasextranjeros.blogspot.com/

I agree with you. But, Petkovic, P. Rocha and Romerito had more meaningful careers in Brazil and enjoyed more prestige with the fans. Just that.

Sastre was really quite famous and recalled on his time, as Fangio said, Pet has some fame, but he is 80% of time a bench warmer. Doval has much more prestige than him, for example. And Guinazu? Not if Dario Pereyra played at this position as well and Maldonado has a strong er argument there.

Sastre and Leonidas are almost the foundation for Sao Paulo, they were in many ways Di Stefano and Puskas for them...Antonio was "O Maestro" on a time Brazil need it that Maestro....Petko was a wanderer and Pedrito was as symbolic as the two oldies mentioned for Sao Paulo later..but anyway in a team that plays Guiñazu, I think Sastre has place, more when Sastre played so many roles in his career...bah, que se yo, yo no lo dejaria afuera

Guinazu is ok, but it is like Roma fans electing Emerson and leaving Cerezo and Falcao out...

Doval has more prestige than Pet? Do you live in Brazil?

Petkovic is a 3 times "Bola de Prata" and was essential to Flamengo's National title in 2009 at the age of 37. I think you tried to underappreciate by saying "bench-warmer", but that's not possible.

And yes, Guiñazu (fundamental at 2010's Libertadores) was and is a better player than Maldonado (fundamental at 2003's Brasileirão), and already played more years in a higher level than Maldonado in Brazil, and I really admire Maldonado, since São Paulo.

I know that Dario Pereyra could play as a DH, but he was mainly a CB for São Paulo. All the years that he won a "Bola de Prata" was as a CB.

Much more prestige than Pet, he is with Zico, the most remembered idol from 70's and his departure to Flu caused an uproar that didnt happen with Pet romaming by Flu or Vasco. And if you live in Brazil, you would know Bola de prata is more hilarious than Oscar lists.

You should check Maldonado, he played for São Paulo in high level, for Santos and for Flamengo, this goes on 7-9 years of good footbal, and Guinazu didnt even play that longer for Inter. D'Alessandro easily overshadows him as most important middlefield of that team.

Dario was hired as middlefield and played as such for 3-4 years, winning a brazilian league as dm. Again, no need of bola de lata.

Really?
Well, all the books I read don't treat Doval with all that glamour that you are giving to him. Maybe he was special to you, but not so much to all others that report history in books. Probably you are overrating him. :thumbsup:

Are you referring to 77's Brasileirão? He only played 6 games in that championship. :thmbdown:
It's more than clear that his best years were as a CB.

But ok, I admit that I could have placed him instead of Guiñazu.

Is funny that you've chose such word because Doval was one of the biggest playboys of the glam era (70's) in SA...half the population of blond kids from Rio and BA are more than probably his sons...
