    He played on ten different teams during his playing career.
    He had a longstanding feud with Romario, prior to the 1994 World Cup.
    He was notorious for whining to the officials when calls didn't go in his favor.
    This distinction prompted Romario to give him the nickname 'Choroa', which translated into crybaby as a result.
    His performance in the 1994 World Cup was remembered for him pretending to rock a newborn baby as part of his goal scoring celebration in Brazil's quarterfinal victory over The Netherlands.
    He sought political office following the end of his playing career.
    He was a member of five different championship teams in FIFA tournaments.
    His baby rocking celebration was in honor of his newborn son, who was born days before the matchup against the Netherlands.
    He made amends with Romario, and together the duo formed a solid striker partnership to help Brazil win the World Cup (1994).
    The Brazil National Football Team went undefeated with him and Romario on the same team.
    He was considered an opportunistic player who used his agility and vision to his advantage.
