Does anyone know what happened to Julio Cesar who has played for Borussia Dortmund and Juventus? Many people remember him for missing a penalty in the shoot-out vs France in WC 1986. I can't remember seing him play for the Brazilian national team the past 10 years. Did he refuse to play, or what?

HE was a big merceneray.
After he went to play for Borrusia , their was the US Cup in 93, and while Brazil played engalnd in the JFK Stadium Julio Cesar was robbed 60000 dollares in the hotel. He asked CBF to pay him the money, CBF did not play as it was not CBF's fault. SO then he said that he was not going to play for Brazil until CBF din't pay him. It was good to get rid of him :)

Then in 98 he tried coming back to Brazil to play for Botafogo and was awful......he got fired from Botafogo and returned to Dortmund. I don't know were he is now!

I remember he was up here in Norway playing for Werder Bremen in an UEFA cup game last year. But I don't think he is in Bremen anymore. May be he has retired. He is at least 35 years old now.

I didn't know about that robbery in the US Cup. So that solved the mystery. Thanks! :)

Before going to Werder he played one year for Panathinaikos.He sucked big time and he was practically "sacked".
