14. Carlos Alberto
That goal. That beautiful, glorious, wonderful goal. We could talk forever about one of the greatest team goals of all time. Carlos Alberto was the man at the end of it. He captained his nation at the 1970 World Cup, leading a team widely regarded as the best Brazilian side ever. The right-back was renowned for bombing up and down the wing, like a precursor to Cafu. His leadership as captain of Santos led to him getting the armband for Brazil.
1970 was the only World Cup that Carlos Alberto played in because he was injured for West Germany in 1974. But he made his name in Mexico, leading his country to the final instalment of the Jules Rimet Trophy before the modern edition was introduced. That trophy was eventually stolen and melted down by thieves, who were after the 18-carat gold.
