Nilmar, Villarreal (MARCA)
Nilmar - He had to go through some tough moments before establishing himself in the group that is going to the World Cup. Two serious knee injuries threatened his career when he was at Corinthians, but eventually he recovered well and put in brilliant performances at Internacional that granted him a spot at the Selecao.

Now at Villarreal, Nilmar is struggling to get into the starting XI, but everything seems to change when he wears the national team shirt. The striker has played well every time he has featured for the Selecao, and this consistency convinced Dunga that he is a good option as a substitute forward.
