Robson de Souza, or Robinho, is one of the greatest talents to come out of Brazil in recent times. Born in São Vicente, a city near Santos, he was discovered at a very young age and was still a just kid when he made his debut as a professional footballer. By the time he was 18 he was the star of the Santos side that won the Brazilian league in 2002.

After conquering Brazil, it was time to seek new challenges. It was his former coach at Santos, Vanderlei Luxemburgo, who first opened the door to Europe by signing him for Real Madrid, one of the best known clubs in the world, where he was handed the No. 10 shirt.
Since then he has won another title with Santos and two more with Spanish club Real Madrid. Robinho has won one Copa América title and two Confederations Cups with Brazil.
