Thiago Silva - It wasn't until the last two call-ups made by Dunga that Thiago Silva knew he had any chance to be in South Africa next year. The talented centre-back has been left out of the Selecao since his move to AC Milan that made him wait to play first team football for six months.

But the great performances for the Rossoneri at the beginning of this season were enough to convince Dunga that Thiago Silva deserved a new chance. Now, the player that started his career at Fluminense has a seat on the plane that leaves to South Africa in June. It will be the first of many World Cups in the career of the 25-year-old.

Did You Know:

When Thiago Silva left Fluminense, a documentary film about his life was made. The name of the film is "Thiago Silva, o monstro," which translates to "Thiago Silva, The Monster."
