Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Danilo Alvim Faria was a Brazilian footballer. He was a member of the ill-fated Brazilian 1950 World Cup team. Danilo Alvim was an amateur playing with Am rica when Fl vio Costa's Rio de Janeiro squad practiced against them in 1941. He was asked to fill in for one of the injured players and so impressed the famous coach that he was asked to join the squad. At first he thought it was a joke, but when he realized it was true he went out to celebrate. On his way back home he was hit by a car and had his leg broken. In 1942 he came back to Am rica and was cut by the manager to save costs. Rather than cutting him outright the team's directors sent him to Canto do Rio where he led the team to a Rio de Janeiro championship.show more
