INFO:

Spoiler: show
Rivaldo is widely considered to be one of the finest players in the modern history of the game. He played in the area between attacking midfielder and deep-lying forward but he was more scorer or assister than creator. Rivaldo could dribble, shoot and pass with the best of them. Especially, his shooting was a combination of superb power and precision. The best highlight of his club career was in 2001. In the last game of the season, against Valencia, Rivaldo scored a hat-trick to win the game 3-2. His third goal was a bicycle kick from the edge of the area in the 90th minute of the game, which is regarded as one of the greatest goals ever in a combination of importance and skill. The win secured Barcelona a place in the following UEFA Champions League tournament.

The Zenith of his national team career came at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, hosted in South Korea and Japan. He scored in the first five games for Brazil. Brazilian striker Ronaldo had done so for four matches, allowing journalists to question whether there was any rivalry between the two athletes. Rivaldo denied this, insisting that all he wanted was to be the world champion. His spectacular goal against Belgium in the second round prompted Belgian coach Robert Waseige to name Rivaldo as the deciding factor. Brazilian midfielder Ronaldinho helped Rivaldo score a crucial goal in the 2-1 win over England in the quarterfinals. Brazil eventually met Germany in the final, and went on to win the tournament with a 2-0 victory in the final. Both Ronaldo goals came from trademark Rivaldo plays, as both Rivaldo and Brazil made amends for the 1998 FIFA World Cup Final loss to France. Rivaldo was named by coach Luiz Felipe Scolari as the best player of the tournament.

I am not sure his technique was better then Riquelme/Messi nowadays, I suggest 94.

I agree with Fides, Technique should be dropped to 94. And he never had any poaching qualities to deserve 90 in Attack. 86/87 would be more proper ;)

First disagree drop his technique, he was one of the better players that Barcelona has, his first touch was simply brilliant, on pair with Riquelme with no doubt.
But I'm agree to low his attack, but to 87.

And I would suggest a few questions:

Response 88 Very intelligent player, IMO this season was on pair with the actual Lampard.
Agility 88 With the same height I think he was a bit agile than Kaka.
Mentality 75~76 He rescue his team so many times with his goals, don't forget the hat-trick the last match against Valencia, including a fantastic "chilena" in the last minutes of the match.
TW 76 He was really selfish, he don't reserve yellow numbers.

I honestly cannot fathom how Rivaldo's trapping skills could possibly be inferior to Messi's!? :? I actually rate him higher than Riquelme in terms of ability to take a ball out of the air and literally own it in a single touch. Rivaldo also managed to pull many of these insane plays in important matches. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=i3bHpUMdX ... age&fmt=18

I agree with the attack and teamwork decreases, definitely, though.

Agreed that technique should stay where it is, but if attack is lowered I think defence should be put around the 20-25 mark. Agreed he was no poacher but I can't think of a single instance of Rivaldo tracking back or even crossing the halfway line, so any reduction in his movement forward should be cancelled out. This way he won't get those poachers goals but he'll stay up the whole time.

Yep, technique is right were it is. Only thing i strongly disagree is the TW value, i would be glad with something like 75 or even less. With CR7 and Stoichkov at 78, Ortega at 72, Cassano at 70 ... well, it makes no sense having a selfish player like Rivaldo at 80.

maybe FKA could come up to 93

i agree with the attack decrease to 88 and a proposed decrease in TW.

In terms of playing sake, I think he could get less attack, he liked to be outside the area getting the ball and then decide what to do next, and not waiting in the area for other player's decisions.

His Era should be 1996-2001. He was world class player in that period, as I recall.

i think his SA should come down to 86. he is far too deadly with his current shooting stats. was he ever more accurate than lampard and co on 86?

I agree, his combination of shooting stats with *middle shooting and *1-1 scoring is too efective.

do you guys think giving him *passing was a bit too generous?

I agree here. He should NOT have this. Absolutely not. Because as I think about it he -was- a very good passer of the ball but in the kinds of positions you'd use *passing he would almost always use his amazing agility to find that bit of space for the shot. And he was incredibly accurate, too.

















As you can see, he ALWAYS wanted (and still wants!) to be the hero. :D He did start passing a bit more at Olympiakos, though. But that's not relevant. One of the best freekickers I've ever seen, too.

I hope at least a few enjoy those videos. He used to have me glued to the telly because when it came to producing those bits of magic... :o
