Captain of Brazil in the victorious 1970 World Cup, Carlos Alberto Torres is considered by many historians to be one of the most complete full-backs ever produced by the Brazilian school.
Tall, long-limbed, fast, physically strong, he was good at defending and even better at attacking thanks to excellent technique, skill in passing, making good decisions, and a powerful and accurate shot.
