One of the most respected right-backs in the world, Maicon was able to successfully replace a World Cup legend in the Brazilian team. The gap left by Cafu's retirement from the Selecao was big, but the Inter man was up to the task.

The 28-year-old was already a big part of the success of Roberto Mancini's Inter when he finally established himself as the starting right-back of the national team.

Now Maicon is one of the main players of Dunga's team and won the stiff battle with Barcelona's Daniel Alves to play in his position at World Cup 2010.

More than that, he hopes to be as successful as his predecessor as one of the most decorated full-backs in the history of football.

Did You Know?

In four Brazilian Championships played with Cruzeiro, Maicon scored just one goal.
