just look at this fucking roster sons, stacked doesn't do it justice:
dida - best brasilian goalkeeper in memory
roque junior - core player on a UCL finalist.
lucio - hall of famer defender
roberto carlos - one of the GOAT LBs
cafu - one of the GOAT RBs
gilberto silva - great player in '02, arsenal snatched him for peanuts
ronaldo - goat no 9 in my book
rivaldo - superstar, top 5 player, etc
ronaldinho - superstar in the making
belletti - this nigga was good tbh.
polga - nice career at sporting, adequate benchwarmer
kleberson - talented but busted at united
denilson - top 25 player at the time imo, if he were a bit smarter he would've had a much better career
juninho - core player at a UCL semifinalist, GOAT free kick taker
kaka - baby superstar
plus an adequate list of bench warmers.
Also a nicely balanced roster in comparison to spain '10 or brasil '72, with a lot more physical presence than the 10s Barcelona teams, with much more creativity than the 10s best real teams, more talent than the Galacticos (crazy tbh), much better build up play than the best bayern teams. I can't think of one team with a better and more balanced roster. This roster had crazy firepower in a balanced team, they were physical yet technical, could play all imaginable strategies, and had more superstar talent than anything in memory. Imo this is an impeccable team. Proof of this, they won with a towel boy as a coach.
