The importance of this goal, all three of his goals, is incredible, at stake was a place in the Champions League and all the money that goes with it for the club, TV deals and so on. Like many before him, Rivaldo found in football a game he loved and a hope for salvation. Born into stark poverty, the hardship of his childhood almost ruined Rivaldo's dream. As a child he lost teeth decayed by malnutrition, and his poor diet left him dangerously thin, bow-legged and muscularly underdeveloped for his height.

Rivaldo was part of a golden generation of Brazilians who racked up trophies between 1993 and 2003 and were nauseatingly fawned over by British commentators . The attacking midfielder also scored regularly for a successful Barcelona side and was one of the world’s most recognised flair players. However, Rivaldo was a notorious diver and often acted like a real lowlife. During the 2002 World Cup , the smug superstar produced some despicable play-acting during the dying minutes of a win over Turkey. Rivaldo had very slowly gone over to take a corner but there was no ball. Turkey player Hakan Unsal hacked one towards the Brazilian and it hit him in the thigh, prompting Rivaldo to fling himself to the floor as if mortally wounded. For some reason the referee sent off Unsal for ‘kicking the ball at another player during a game of football.’
Extractions: R IVALDO whose actual name is Victor Borba Ferreira like many great Brazilian players started playing soccer as a child on waste sites in poor districts where he grew up. Born on April, 19, 1972 in Recife, Brazil, this genius on the field has more than 21 caps, and has played on various clubs including. Paulista (BRA) Santa Cruz (BRA), Mogi-Mirin (BRA), Corinthians (BRA), Palmeiras (BRA), Deportivo Coruna (SPA) and Barcelona where he was twice national champion and also top Spanish goal scorer. Watching him play is a sheer delight, that is if you are not on the opposing side. Players on the oposing side have many times been left awstruck and immobilized by his seemingly superhuman reflexes and ball control. La Cancha recently met Rivaldo in Brussels Belgium at the International Hall of Champions ceremony where he was awarded the FIFA World Player 1999 award. We found him to be a very humble softspoken almost shy person, in contrast to his dazzling style of play on the pitch. He was asked how it felt being a member of the prestigious Brasilian national team, as well as being a candidate for the World Player Award. He responded by smiling and humbly stating in a soft tone of voice this was not only a great moment for himself but a wonderful moment for his fans and the people of Brasil. He also expressed his pride in being a member of the Brasilian National team, a team which has as it's alumni Pele, Rivelino and Garrincha, as well as Didi and Zico who were both in Brussels to be inducted into the International Hall of Champions.

AP Contrib BARCELONA (Reuters) Brazilian striker Ronaldo has urged his former club Barcelona not to repeat the mistake they made with him two years ago and let his compatriot Rivaldo slip through their fingers. Ronaldo left Barcelona after a single, highly successful season at the Nou Camp in 1996-97, shocking everyone connected with the club as he left to join Inter Milan. Barcelona is now negotiating a new contract with Ronaldo's replacement, Rivaldo, who has reportedly received a lucrative offer from European champions Manchester United. Rivaldo has pledged his future to Barcelona, saying he is happy with the Spanish champions, but Ronaldo is still concerned that history might repeat itself and the Catalans may once again lose their best player.
