That dude of the day


Right-backs would only get up to the halfline, and maybe once every blue-moon would make it to the end of the pitch, before huffing and puffing. 

Then came Cafu. 

Following in the footsteps of the great Carlos Alberto, Cafu showed the world the true potential of what a right-back could do in the way he'd go up and down the pitch for the entire 90 minutes and not tire. He'd pretty much be a winger, but would always remember his duties as a defender. 

It made Brazil and the clubs he played for more dynamic, and forced opposing managers to scratch their heads, figuring out how to deal with this four-dimensional tactical ploy that was used.
