Thiago Silva (CB)
Born into poverty on the streets of Rio de Janeiro it’s been an incredible journey that has seen Thiago Silva become one of the world’s greatest centre backs. It was on these streets where he would thank God for getting him home safely, after regularly hearing gunshot sounds. He has won 4 league titles in France and the Seria A with AC Milan in Italy, as well as captaining Brazil.
As a defender he is credited with his fast pace and natural leadership that makes him one of the worlds best and his stability will be valuable in our Ultimate Church 11.
