Brazil has an incredible history of producing the world's best and most skilful players, wowing fans the world over with their unique brand of stylish, free and explosive samba football, and drawing comparisons with the purist art forms.

The national team has won the World Cup tournament five times, the most of any international team, with victories in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002.

Pele, arguably the greatest footballer ever, led Brazil to three of those championships, cementing himself as a world icon in the process

And Brazil's leading players in those World Cup victories have captured the imagination of the football world, names including Garrincha, Zico, Socrates, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and current poster boy, Neymar.

But who will rise to become the next samba star?
