Doni - If you ask most of the people in Brazil, they will say they don't know why Doni is in the Selecao. The Roma goalkeeper was never really successful when he defended
Corinthians or Juventude, the two biggest clubs he played for in his homeland.

Doni started his career in a small club, Botafogo of Ribeirao Preto. His promising performances caught the eye of giants Corinthians, but he was never able to stand out
from the rest of the goalkeepers during his tenure with the current club of Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos. From there, he moved to Juventude, where he also didn't impress.

But Doni's good performances with Roma and a spectacular Copa America in 2007 meant that Dunga's most common choice for the substitute goalkeeper is the 29-year-old,
who has a good chance of being in his first World Cup.

Did You Know:

After the historic 7-1 defeat to Manchester United in the Champions League 2007, Doni stated to Uefa.com that a score like that would not be repeated in a 100 years.
