FootBrazil’s top ten players in the Brasileiro featuring Neymar, Paulo Henrique Ganso, Zé Eduardo, Jucilei, Leandro Damião, Giuliano, Dentinho …

FootBrazil picked out ten players who are set to have a massive future in the game. Some of them you’ll already know. Some will be new names. But all of them have bags of talent and also fitted our criteria of being under 23. Naturally, we couldn’t fit everyone on the list. So, if you want to see seven more young stars in the making, check out Brazil: the talent factory 2010.

Here’s FootBrazil’s top ten (broadcast 6 Sept 2010): Mazola (Guarani), Zé Eduardo (Santos was always a midfielder but has recently been ‘promoted’ to a forward), Rafael Toloi (Goiás), Dentinho (Corinthians), Leandro Damião (Internacional), Jucilei (Corinthians), Bruno César (Corinthians), Giuliano (Internacional), Paulo Henrique Ganso (Santos), Neymar (Santos)

    That was excellent

    Any chance that you persuade a few of them to sign for Nottingham Forest?

    i’m sure Jucilei would be interested! Ganso’s injured but i could see Neymar lining up alongside Robert Earnshaw no problem! haha

    Neymer could be a useful squad player. How is his heading? Does he do much tracking back?

    I think that Bruno Fernandes de Souza might be the only star player who might prefer to be at Forest rather than where he is now.

    Might be a slight problem that your struggling in the Championship! 🙂

    I would add to it Ciro from Sport Recife, high-scoring player of the second division, the world vice-champion U20 from Egypt.

    Also interesting and promising are Tinga from Palmeiras and Lucas vel Marcelinho from SPFC which coach Baresi moved to first team together with Casemiro, Ze Vitor and Lucas Gaucho
    which they won this year Copa Sao Paulo de Juniores.

    I apologise for my English which isn’t too good.

      Hi Z-K
      Ciro was a prospect last year but never really lived up to the expectations in the end.
      Lucas (Marcelinho) – i’ll be posting FootBrazil’s special feature on him soon – and Casemiro feature in my Brazil: the talent factory 2010 post
