Brazil - Record International Players

  • Appearances for Brazil National Team
  • Goalscoring for Brazil National Team

  • Last match included: Brazil-Netherlands, 12 Jul 2014
    
    NB: the match Kuwait Sports Club-Brazil (0-4, 7-10-2006) is
        not included as it did not involve the Kuwaiti national
        team but a club side with several non-Kuwaiti and guest
        players and so was not a full A-international.

    Note: * indicates the player is still active, at least at club level.
    
    NB: in January 2001 (!), FIFA decided not to recognize matches against FIFA
        or continental selections as full internationals, classifying them as
        exhibition games, and scratched all caps and goals earned in these
        matches from the records.  After the French and Italian FAs refused to
        follow this ruling, the Brazilian FA eventually decided to keep the
        match on November 6, 1968 vs FIFA (Brazil won 2-1) in the records
        as well, which is reflected in the above ranking; affected players 
        would be: Pelé, Rivelino (1 goal), Jairzinho, Gérson, Paulo César, 
        Tostão (1 goal) and Carlos Alberto.

    NB: in January 2001 (!), FIFA decided not to recognize matches against FIFA
        or continental selections as full internationals, classifying them as
        exhibition games, and scratched all caps and goals earned in these
        matches from the records.  After the French and Italian FAs refused to
        follow this ruling, the Brazilian FA eventually decided to keep the
        match on November 6, 1968 vs FIFA (Brazil won 2-1) in the records
        as well, which is reflected in the above ranking; affected players 
        would be: Rivelino (1 goal) and Tostão (1 goal).
