Here’s to Brazil

Socrates

This version of the Selecao may have been humiliated but Moda Terminal remembers when Brazil had style, and Nobody had more style than Socrates. Sports writer Cathal Kelly describes him thusly

“He was a leftist philosopher, a qualified doctor, a newspaper columnist, a chain smoker, a high-functioning alcoholic and the guy who helped bring down the junta. In between, he found time for soccer, and was better at it than just about anyone in the history of the game.”

Our kind of guy!
