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 Maicon 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 competition with Daniel Alves to play in his position with Brazil.

More than that, he hopes to be as successful as his predecessor, one of the players with most titles in the history of football.


Did you know that:

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