Luisao - He is not brilliant like Lucio, Juan or Thiago Silva, and that's maybe why many don't think he deserves to be in the Selecao, but there's no question that Luisao answered the bell every time that Dunga needed him.

It was like that when Brazil faced a desperate Argentina in the qualifiers in Rosario. In that match, Luisao opened the scoring with a beautiful header and added to the goal a safe and sound performance in the back.
It's this consistent play that turned him into a fan favourite at Benfica, a club he joined in 2003.

Did You Know:

Luisao left Cruzeiro to join Benfica in the midst of the team's most successful year. In 2003, Cruzeiro won the Brazilian Championship, the Brazilian Cup and the State Championship. Luisao didn't get to celebrate the national championship, that was won at the end of the year.
