Vampeta
Club:Corinthinans
Position:Midfielder

A surprise inclusion - and another player who Scolari stuck by despite indifferent club form.

Vampeta is a skillful left-sided midfielder who has grace on the ball and adds an air of authority to the line-up when included.

However his chances in the campaign have been few and far between.

But he endured a dreadful 12 months of warming the bench at clubs in Europe and Brazil before re-joining Corinthians at the start of 2002.

To say he was much-travelled does not do him justice, his journey taking in brief stops at PSG, Inter Milan and Flamengo during 2001 before a move back to the club he left in the first place.

The return to familiar territory did him good and he is back to the form that saw him help Brazil to the Copa America in 1999.
