It was perhaps appropriate that a player with the name of Socrates would be one of the more thoughtful participants on the soccer pitch. Tall and skilful, Socrates always seemed able to anticipate what was happening and gain that extra increment of time that enabled him to play the deadly ball. Planted in midfield, he was the platform from which Brazil started the attacks. A very fleet of foot player, Socrates always was seen to be calmness personified, and in possession of the time he needed to pass. At 28 years of age this native of Belem had been playing professional soccer for only four years; He was one of the stars of the 1982 world cup finals for the Brazilians.
