Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, born 19 February 1954 in Belém do Pará, Brazil. one of the great midfielders and most compelling characters in modern football history, Sócrates captained the Joga Bonita Brazil squad in the 1982 and 1986 World Cups. In the same period he graduated from the Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, receiving a doctorate in medicine; and later a doctorate degree in philosophy. Revered in his homeland he is notorious for his love for life, along with a passion for both cigarettes and alcohol!

'We have lost touch with humanity, people are driven by results. They used to go to football to see a spectacle. Now, they go to watch a war and what matters is who wins. For me beauty comes first, victory is secondary and what really matters is joy!'
