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.
