Picking an all-time best side is always a difficult task. When it comes to a country like Brazil, that has had so may truly great players, it is made that much more difficult again.
This is not just a simple all-time best XI, though. The aim is to pick a "Flair XI", which will consist of the best attacking and creative talents that the Seleção have had to offer. Over the years, there have been plenty.
The key part in this task will be balancing style with substance. There have been many prodigiously talented individuals who have failed to make an impact with the national side.
We, though, must try to look to incorporate only those who have made a significant contribution for their country. After all, flair is no good if you are unable to display it.
So, who makes our all-time Brazilian flair XI?
