Cafu is the unsung hero of Brazilian football. If he does not have the same aura as a player like Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos or Ronaldinho, he has never disappointed.

Cafu is the only player in history to play three World Cup finals in a row (1994-1998-2002) winning two of them.

He wore the jersey of Brazil 142 times; another record.

To this impressive international record, we can add a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994-95, 2 Serie A titles in 2000-01 and 2003-04 with Roma and Milan and a UEFA Champions League trophy in 2006-07.

Nicknamed Il Pendolino (“The express train”), Cafu is one of those players who made a mark on the history of each club they played for and he is considered the best right back of the century
