National Soccer Team History
The Brazilian National Soccer Team is known around the world as one of the most influential
and powerful teams in any sport, with their appeal reaching the farthest corners of the world. Brazilians first began playing
the game in the late 19th Century, when it was brought to the country by visitors from England. The sport took a bit to get
a stronghold in the South American country, but by 1914, Brazil had a national team. It wouldn't be until 1930 when Brazil
would play in its first World Cup, and though they did not advance far in the competition, being a part of the tournament
garnered a lot of new interest in the sport around the country. After almost winning the 1950 World Cup, which Brazil also
hosted, the sport had become an obsession among the Brazilian people. The Golden Age of Brazilian soccer began when Pelé,
a sixteen year old from the soccer club Santos, joined the Brazilian National team in 1957. With the teenage soccer prodigy
blossoming, theBrazil National Soccer Team won its first World Cup in 1958 in Sweden. Brazil would go on to win two more World
Cups with Pelé, in 1962 and 1970, before he retired from the team following their World Cup victory. By this time he
had become the most famous footballer in the world, the highest scoring and most recognizable player on the globe. Brazil
was now a powerhouse, who would go on to win two more World Cups, again in 1994 and 2002. Since Pelé, Brazil has had
many incredible players wear their countries jersey, like the "Three R's": Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, and Rivaldo, who were the
heroes of the 2002 team.
