Captain Carlos leads the great Brazil side of 1970 to victory.
There have been some fantastic goals scored at the World Cup through the years but Carlos Alberto has perhaps one of the strongest claims for the tournament’s best.
The Brazilian defender, who appeared 53
times for his country, had the honour of captaining the all-conquering Samba Boys of 1970 and brought the tournament to a fitting crescendo when he smashed in Brazil’s final goal in the 4-1 drubbing of Italy in the Final.
Sadly, injury kept Alberto out of the ’74 tournament but his place in history had already been cemented.
