Flamengo.

No.10 Zico.


Zico, christened Arthur Antunes Coimbra, came from a lower-middle-class family, in the neighborhood of Quintino, Rio de Janeiro. In common with many Brazilians, he spent much of his youth dreaming of playing professional football. In 1967, while still a teenager, he had a scheduled trial at América, where his brothers were playing at the time. But he caught the attention of the radio reporter and friend, Celso Garcia, who asked Zico's father to take him to a trial at Flamengo instead. Being a fan of Flamengo, Zico had his father's approval, beginning his path towards becoming one of the most admired players in the history of the sport.

No.11 Romario.


When in the right mood and in the right formation, there’s arguably never been a forward as reliable, ruthless or simply riveting as Romario.
Its fair to say that Romario will always be remembered as one of footballs more talented journeymen and in all he had three spells at Flamengo.
But despite being one of the most prolific strikers in football history, once described by Johan Cruyff as "a genius of the goal area”, there was an underlying issue that Romario was apparently part of a generation of hugely gifted Brazilian forwards who were a little too willing to enjoy the fruits of their talents and thus never fully lived up to their immense promise.

Marseille 1993 - No.6 Desailly.


Marcel Desailly arrived in France as a four-year-old and, following his brothers lead, began his career at FC Nantes. There, as part of the famed FC Nantes youth programme, he played alongside a young Didier Deschamps, who became his closest friend. 

In 1992, he moved to Olympique de Marseille, where he reunited with Deschamps, and together they won the inaugural Champions League the following year, shocking favourites Milan in the final. It earned him a transfer to the vanquished club, and the following year he again won the Cup (scoring in the final himself), being the first player to win the European Cup in consecutive seasons with different clubs.

Boca Juniors 1920.


Boca Juniors is also one of only eight teams to have won CONMEBOL's treble (the others being Olimpia, São Paulo, Independiente, Vélez Sársfield, Cruzeiro, Internacional and LDU Quito). Their success usually has Boca ranked among the IFFHS's Club World Ranking Top 25, and they have reached the top position six times (mostly during the coaching tenure of Carlos Bianchi). Boca was also named by the IFFHS as the top South American club of the first decade of the 21st century (2001–2010).
