Greatest Brazil XI in Serie A 1970-2020

The line-up of greatest Brazilians to have played in Serie A since 1970 is testament to the wealth of talent that graced this league. Do you agree with Richard Hall’s choices?

GK: Julio Cesar (Inter)

Julio Cesar was one of the best goalkeepers in the world at his peak and was part of the incredible Inter team that won the Treble. He makes this team, closely pipping Milan’s Nelson Dida and Parma legend Claudio Taffarel. Julio Cesar had everything, athleticism, positioning reflexes and intelligence.

Cafu 'investigated for criminal links'

Police are reportedly investigating links between Cafu and PCC, described as Brazil’s largest criminal organisation.

The link has come about after authorities discovered the PCC’s accountant had received cash deposits from Cafu relating to the sale of buildings and land in the state of Sao Paulo.

The 49-year-old has since issued a statement denying the accusations.

“It’s all false. I don’t know where this story has come from, since I don’t have any property in that area.”

Pirlo's still got it for Milan

Andrea Pirlo and Giuseppe Pancaro were on target for Milan Glorie in a 3-2 defeat to Liverpool Legends at Anfield.

The charity event was packed with star names, including Coach Carlo Ancelotti, who set his Rossoneri out with the classic Christmas Tree formation.

Marcos Cafu looked much like his old self bursting down the right flank on to Manuel Rui Costa passes, but Luis Garcia missed a sitter on a rapid counter-attack.

Billy Costacurta lost sight of Robbie Fowler and allowed him to meet Glen Johnson’s cross one-on-one with Dida.
