Dani Alves plays football at the highest level for club and country and has won just about everything there is to win with Barcelona. With his Brazil side just two matches away from World Cup glory, Alves has taken the opportunity to remember a more modest beginning.

The star full-back put up a throwback photo of himself on Instagram from back in his days in his hometown Juazeiro's youth setup. From there, he went on to play for Bahia, then on to La Liga with Sevilla and Barcelona.

He's certainly come a long way.
