Where are they now? Brazil's 2002 World Cup winners
Just when it appeared his career might be petering out, he rediscovered his mojo back in Brazil with Flamengo, winning the Brasileirão in 2009
One of the stars of Atlético Paranaense's surprise Brazilian title win in 2001, the energetic midfielder started the tournament as a back-up option, but was drafted in against England and never surrendered his place. He hit the bar early on in the final and helped set up Ronaldo's second goal with a surging run down the right.
He remained in Curitiba until a year after the World Cup, when he became the first Brazilian to sign for Manchester United. But Kléberson was unable to produce his best from on a consistent basis at Old Trafford, nor for Besiktas, who offered him an escape route in 2007.
Just when it appeared his career might be petering out, he rediscovered his mojo back in Brazil with Flamengo, winning the Brasileirão in 2009 and sneaking into Dunga's squad for the World Cup in South Africa the following year. Now 37, he plays for Fort Lauderdale strikers in the North American Soccer League.
The man with the three-trunk thighs was a brilliant outlet on the left throughout the tournament, and remained a pillar of the side until the 2006 World Cup
The man with the three-trunk thighs was a brilliant outlet on the left throughout the tournament, and remained a pillar of the side until the 2006 World Cup. But after a lapse in concentration allowed Thierry Henry to score the goal that ended the Seleção's campaign in Germany, a wave of media criticism prompted Carlos to hang up his boots at international level.
There would be another Spanish league title (his fourth) after that, before a successful homecoming with Corinthians and a money-spinning move to Anzhi Makhachkala. He took his first steps as coach for the Russian side, but subsequent spells at Sivasspor, Akhisar Belediyespor and Delhi Dynamos – for whom he also played a few times – ended in ignominy.
