Brazil NT Legends: Hilderaldo Luiz Bellini (Bellini)
Bellini, a tough-tackling central defender, led the Selecao to glory in Sweden and is credited with beginning the tradition of captains raising the trophy aloft in triumph. Bellini was initially called up to the Brazil squad as a reserve for the 1957 South American Championship and never expected it would be the first step on the road to World Cup glory. He remained back-up for Edson throughout the competition but was handed a chance to impress in a couple of World Cup qualifiers against Peru and, much to his surprise, not only retained his place but became captain of the side in Sweden. Bellini was capped 51 times by Brazil and also appeared at the 1966 World Cup in England.
He has passed away on 20 March 2014, aged 83, in São Paulo, due to complications caused by Alzheimer’s disease culminating with cardiac arrest.
