INFO:

Djalma Santos was a tough, rugged and uncompromising right back. Known for his soccer sense and intelligence on the pitch, he was often given the role of marking the opponent's fastest wing player, but was also known for his own surging runs down the wing. Djalma was also a deadball specialist and the designated penalty taker for Brazil in the early 1960s.

Djalma Santos played in all three of Brazils games in 1954. However, the team were over compensating for their defensive frailties four years before and, without any real attacking sparkle, lost to the great Hungarian side in the quarter finals.

In 1958, it looked as if Santos would be a non-playing member of the squad. However, for the final against Sweden, the Brazilian manager, Feola, called upon Santos to use his excellent positioning skills to mark the winger Skoglund. Brazil won the game 5-2, and lifted the trophy.

During the 1962 finals, the Brazilian team, with an average age of 30, looked a little old, especially against the pacey Spanish side in the group stages. However, with the help of their rock-solid right back, they won their way through to the final, where they beat Czechoslovakia 3-1. Djalma Santos even set up the third goal. However, he was lucky not to concede a penalty with a blatant hand ball.

The defence remained virtually the same for the 1966 World Cup tournament, with Djalma Santos being called into action in the twilight of his career. However, this time they were too old and complacent, believing the cup was their's by right. They could not overcome the passing of Hungary, and with a little help from well placed kicks by the opposition, Brazil offered only a whimper, and left the tournament after the first stage.

Santos played in 8 of the 9 World Cup matches from 1962 to 1966 (playing at the age of 37 in his final World Cup tournament). Djalma Santos played in four World Cups and was the first Brazilian to make 100 caps. The length of his career is a testament to his skill and shows that he truly was a world class player.

He's not a little underrated? He is regarded as the best right back in history of football and his stats looks pretty bad compared to other right backs of this forum (e.g., Carlos Alberto, Zanetti). The same applies to Nílton Santos; his stats looks pretty bad compared to other left backs of this forum (e.g., Krol, Júnior) and for me he was second only to Maldini in terms of skills.

Did you watch both of them (Nilton and Djalma Santos)?

Be considered one of the bests in Football's story doesn't means the player needs the highest values...

Djalma Santos was great but not because his skills were brilliant, he is considered one of the best because he always played very good.

And it doesn't mean anything, he already is great with this stats and as I told too many times, football works by decades, one player can be the best in his generation, but in future It's sure a player will be better than him, although that player hasn't that recognise like the older one because the older was the inspiration of those player in that future and of course, I think being the inspiration and the idol of those new players is even greatest than be the best in that position but one thing doesn't remove the other... I don't know if I explain myself very well :lol:

I´ve seen their matches of World Cup 1958 and 1962 (not all, their available matches on the net, of course). And yes, I understand what you mean,modern players probably look better and seem more complete, Djalma and Nílton were the precursors of modern side backs. But I still thinking they were really good and their stats in PES (I use the stats of this page for all my classic players) are a little bit poor compared to other legends. I'm not saying they need the highest statistics, of course not, but I think they need a little better stats to be level with other legends.

Albi, sometimes a legend doesn't need high stats to become a legend. They can get it by dedication and titles instead.
For example, Gary Neville. Skill wisely he's nowhere near great, let alone legendary level. But he get those titles, so he became one of the most important players in M.U legends. Another example is Zanetti. While skill wisely he's better than Neville, it's his contribution that made him recognized. And then Stuart Pearce and so on.
Both Djalma and Nilton are the same with these players. They play good, but it's their consistency that made them as legendary players. We respect both players alot, which is why we still have both as the best XI squad in Brazil, despite we have other players in best 23 that better stats wisely, such as Roberto Carlos and Cafu.
PS. We actually think that many old school players as better than their modern counterpart, especially defenders and goalkeepers. ;)
