PositionMidfielder

Full name is: Emerson Ferreira da Rosa

Emerson suffered the agony of dislocating his shoulder less than 24 hours before Brazil's opening match in the 2002 World Cup finals - an injury that ruled him out of the tournament. The Brazilian captain was playing in goal in a practice match when he fell awkwardly.

A hard working midfielder - more in the mould of Dunga than Rivaldo - he started his career at Botafogo before spending five years at Gremio.

Emerson moved to Europe in 1997 when he signed for Bayer Leverkusen where he gained the honour of the Bundesliga's players' Player of the Year award in 1999-2000.

That heralded a big money transfer to Roma and, although struggling through his first Serie A campaign, he went on to provide the perfect platform for such as Francesco Totti.
