The Seleção Brasileira) -Brazil national football team- represents Brazil in international men's football.  Brazil is made by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), the governing body for football in Brazil. They are a member of the FIFA since 1923 and also a member of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) since 1916. Brazil is the most successful national football team in the history of the FIFA World Cup, with five championships. Brazil are the only national team to have played in every World Cup.

Brazil is the only team to have won the championship in four different continents; once in Europe (1958 Sweden), once in South America (1962 Chile), twice in North America (1970 Mexico and 1994 United States) and once in Asia (2002 Korea/Japan).

A common quip about football is: "Os ingleses o inventaram, os brasileiros o aperfeiçoaram" (The English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it).
