Edmilson

Date of birth07 October 1976
Place of birthTaguaritinga
NationalityBrazilian
Weight75 kg
Height1.86 m
PositionDefender/Centre back

Having won many club honours in Brazil and France, due to the depth of talent in the national squad, Edmilson can count himself unfortunate to have won relatively few international caps. Usually employed as a central defender, he is a classy player who always seems to have plenty of time on the ball so has also been used in the middle of midfield. He put in some very solid performances in the latter stages of the qualifying tournament so could have secured a starting place in Japan and South Korea. Edmilson came to the fore during five seasons at Sao Paulo to earn his £7million move to Olympique Lyon.

Edmilson scored his first international goal in Brazil's final Group C game in the 2002 World Cup finals with a spectacular overhead kick in the 5-2 defeat of Costa Rica. He played in the 2002 World Cup Final victory against Germany, and missed only one of their games in Japan and South Korea.
