Brazil has definitively produced a series of the most thrilling talents in football history. And while the question of the country's greatest-ever player has frequently been debated, FIFA.com would now like to know who is the most exciting Brazilian you have seen; be it at the stadium, on television, from video footage or internet highlights.
The modern era is awash with contenders. Who can forget Romario's excellence in his pomp, Ronaldo's spectacular performances for clubs and country, or Ronaldinho's sheer wizardry with the ball at his feet? Add to the aforementioned the names of Rai, Marcelinho Carioca, Edmundo, Djalminha, Juninho Paulista, Rivaldo, Denilson, Kaka and Robinho, and you've a lot to mull over.
Although a car accident tragically took his life at the age of 23 in 1994, the mesmerising skills of Dener will live long in the memory of those fortunate enough to have seen him play. Another Brazilian to pass away prematurely was Garrincha, and footage of his inconceivable genius continues to engross fans.
Regarded by many as the greatest player in history, perhaps you consider Pele his country's all-time most exciting, or is another member of 'The Beautiful Team' of 1970, such as Rivelino, Jairzinho or Tostao, your pick?
Tele Santana's memorable cast of 1982 was also rich on individual talent, and Junior, Falcao, Socrates, Zico, Eder and Co consistently thrilled audiences. Elder users may prefer to campaign for Leonidas da Silva, Zizinho or Julinho, while others may feel that nothing surpasses the electrifying displays of Edu, Reinaldo or Renato Gaucho.
