Brazil National Team

Brazil is the most successful national football team in the history of the game. They have been crowned World Champions a record five times. Brazil took the title in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002. They have participated in all World Cups and have fostered some of the biggest names in the game.

Pel´ is widely regarded as the best player in the history of football and won three World Cups. In 1958 the youngster Pel´ inspired Brazil to their first trophy while he led the 1970 team to glory. The 1970 team is regarded by many as the best football team ever.

The 1982 team that boasted Zico, Eder, Socrates and many others are also held in high esteem, although they failed to win the World Cup. In 1994 a more pragmatic Brazil won the World Cup in the USA powered by the goals of Romario and Bebeto. In 2002 Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ronaldinho led the way to the triumph against Germany in the final. Brazil have furthermore won the Copa America eight times.

Robinho earned his first cap for Brazil in the 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup match on July 13, which Brazil lost 1-0 to Mexico. He played in four of Brazil's five 2006 FIFA World Cup matches as a reserve, but finished the tournament goalless.

However, Robinho was in top form in the Copa Am´rica 2007 a year later. Robinho scored all four of Brazil's group stage goals via a hat-trick in Brazil's 3-0 group stage match against Chile, and a penalty in a 1-0 win over Ecuador. His last two goals came in a 6-1 quarterfinal thrashing of Chile. Robinho reaped the individual honors, finishing as the Golden Boot winner in addition to being named the best player of the tournament.
