Lucio - He is the leader of this Brazilian team, so it's no coincidence he carries the captain armband nowadays. The competitive attitude and relentless play of Brazil's No. 3 is very similar to the explosive behavior Dunga use to display when he was on the pitch. But Lucio's qualities are not limited to his attitude. His performances in the last decade in Germany, and now in Italy, have put his name as one of the best center-backs in the world. After two solid World Cups, one of them granting him the title in 2002, Lucio hopes to lift the World Cup trophy one more time.

Did you know that:

Lucio played for Guara, a small club in Brazil, that was thrashed by 7-0 in a Copa do Brasil match against Internacional. Even with the horrific result, Lucio's performance caught the eye of the winning side, that eventually signed him.
