IMHO, the top 5 are unquestionable. Only the order after Pele and Garrincha is questionable.

1- Pele
2- Garrincha
3 - Romário
4 - Ronaldo
5 - Zico
Others in no order

Rivellino
Didi
Nilton Santos
Zizinho
Rivaldo
Tostão
Ronaldinho
Djalma Santos
Jairzinho
C.A.Torres
Roberto Carlos
Junior
Domingos da Guia
Ademir

I think Pele, Garrincha and Zico can hardly be argued with, but I think you could make arguments for Nilton Santos and Didi trading places with Romario and Ronaldo. Didi made the 58 and 62 World Cup teams tick (arguably the focal point of the teams) and Nilton Santos arguably invented modern defending. He was a stalwart of the national team until well into his mid and late 30's. Romario and Ronaldo (both true greats) also benefit from being recent/current stars while Didi and Nilton did their thing 45 years ago. I am not sure how I would rank numbers 3-7 with Didi, Romario, Nilton Santos and ronaldo.

It is purger, so we always give him some credit. Works this way: Whenever place he put Pele we give him the credit of trying to make us believe that place is the first place.

Kaká: Ronaldo Second Only To Pelé

AC Milan midfielder Kaká believes that his club team-mate Ronaldo is second only to Pelé in the list of great Brazilian footballers.

Speaking to FIFA.com, Kaká did not shy away from expressing his appreciation for his team-mate and friend.

"Ronaldo is number one. In the history of the Brazilian soccer, he is only behind Pelé," he stated.

1. Julio "The Beast" Baptista - best playmaker of the century, hands down he will lead Brazil to WC glory in 2010 :hopeful:
2. Mario Jardel - best striker of the century, Romario who ? :strong:
3. Roque Junior - best defender of the century, made Maldini look worse during his days in Milan, go figure :party:
4. Denilson - most effective dribbler of the century :proud:
5. Belletti - most influential Brazilian player all time, he won the Champions League on his own :ass:
