Like a bawdy Pom making his annual winter pilgrimage to Malaga, the A-League too has its favourite foreign hotspots to get a bit of...culture.
BRAZIL - 38
The A-League's favourite foreign destination are the mighty Selecao, with a huge 38 players to have graced the A-League with their indomitable football presence over the years.
They've boasted some of the biggest drawcard power in A-League history - Romario for Pete's sake - but also some of the greatest surprises...and a few rip-offs of course (seriously, Jardel sucked)
They've made our capital cities their stomping grounds, from the shining Melbourne lights like Fred and Gui Finkler to the pint-sized Juninho and the towering Bobo.
They've amazed and frustrated in equal measure, like the enigmatic Vitor Saba. But, like the Slippery Fish Henrique, they've still managed to win our hearts.
Highlight: Henrique's Grand Final goal against the Wanderers
