I firmly believe that Diego is the best Brazilian footballer. He's sucha dominant player on the field, his touches and movements are so fluid, it amazes me. I remember the 2003 gold cup where brazil finished runner up to Mexico, he was the leader of that team, kaka was on it along with others that are relevant today. And yes, I know, that was 7 years ago. As to why he's not on the Brazilian squad is beyond me, he could make that team so much better than it already is. He coulda been fun to watch in the last game against England a couple of months back. I was watching him against Lazio and he was exploiting the defence, he just couldn't put it in the net. The commentators were saying that that was the Diego they loved to see and that Ciro Ferrara wouldn't let him do that and now that he's gone it's most likely that we'll see more of that explosive Diego. I just bought his jersey on eBay for 30 bucks. It is Nike, but it ships from hong kong. I asked others who have left feedback to that seller and they said the shirts are legit.
can't wait for my Diego jersey to get here.
