CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DEBUT: 2004
TEAM(S): AC Milan
Kaka's 2007 Champions League campaign was dominant. In a bit of Brazilian one-upmanship, the kid from the capital city piggybacked on Ronaldinho's standout run the previous season with an MVP and cup-winning effort of his own. His 10 goals led the tournament, which he highlighted with three against Manchester United in the semifinals. His set-up of Filippo Inzaghi's second goal in the '07 final against Liverpool sealed the game for Milan and his first and only FIFA World Player of the Year award. Some might say Kaka has been "caca" since then, but his 2007 CL run will easily go down as one of the best ever.
