Brazil World Cup Football Team

The Brazilian national football team is the most successful national football team in the world, with five FIFA World Cup victories, including the most recent tournament in 2002. A common quip about football is: "The English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it."

Brazilians refer to the national football team as the "Seleção," which literally means "selection" or "selected".

Brazil is the only nation to have qualified for every World Cup finals tournament and the first to win it five times (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002). Considering the two second places (1950 and 1998) and the two third places (1938 and 1978), as well as many other honours, it is considered the most successful national football team in the world.

Pelé is without doubt Brazil's greatest ever player, gracing 4 World Cups from 1958 to 1970, winning 3 of them, with England taking the other title in 1966. Some say he is the greatest player ever to have played the game.

Brazil, as hosts, will be playing in Group A with Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon.
