It is too hard to say, in the last few World Cups Brazil did not do much in order to win, the other teams were extremely weak, I like the way the handle the ball, but I do think they have a couple of star players who seem to do all the hard work.
Quote from Reuters:
Ronaldinho named World Player of the Year:
|ZURICH, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Barcelona's Brazilian playmaker Ronaldinho was named FIFA World Player of the Year on Monday.|
Ronaldinho, 24, totalled 620 points followed by Thierry Henry of Arsenal and France on 552. Newly-crowned European Footballer of the Year Andriy Shevchenko of AC Milan and Ukraine was third on 253.
Brazil is definitely the best team in the world. In the field of soccer, Brazil has only one deffect: for them just one national team is not enough.
P.S.: I sad in another post that Zidane is the biggest player... in my opinion this is not a contradiction, 'cause I think he's got some "brazilian blood" in his veins.

The latest FIFA world ranking backs up your point RaulDrake, but in my opinion, Argentina is giving the Brazilians a run for their money, and the outcome of the CONMEBOL region in World Cup qualifications will, again in my opinion, prove who the best team is. Here is the current FIFA World Ranking:
Maybe I wasn't specific enough ... I think the brazilians are the best not only because they are nr. 1 in the FIFA ranking (I didn't knew that), but because the way they play. It's a joy watching them ... even if they loose. They are what I like to call "natural born entertainers".
