Brazil National Football Team History
There is a famous saying about football in Brazil - "Os ingleses o inventaram, os brasileiros o aperfeiçoaram" ("the English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it"). This saying is perhaps more true than people imagine. While it is genuinely acknowledged that England invented the game of football as we know it today, it was actually an Englishman that took the sport, now beloved by the entire nation, to Brazil. Charles William Miller is widely considered to be the father of football in Brazil. As a child, in the late 1800s Miller went to study at a school in England, when he came back to Brazil in 1894 he brought with him two footballs and a set of rules. Miller was then instrumental in setting up Sao Paolo club and Brazil's first football league (Liga Paulista). Without this Englishman, who knows who the kings of international football would be today.
Legendary Brazilian footballers
