It wouldn't be a complete list without at least one Brazilian footballer with a mean shoe game. “Little Ronaldo” helped start out the Complex decade in soccer when, along with super OG Ronaldo, he helped Brazil win the '02 World Cup. Since then he's been tearing defenses apart with his patented elastico flip flap move and other breathtaking displays of foot skill. Before Messi, Ronaldhino was the man on Barcelona as he won two championships and a couple FIFA player of the year awards.
