The Brazilian national football team is the national football team of Brazil. As of this writing, it is the most successful national football team in the world, with five FIFA World Cup victories, including the most recent tournament in 2002. A common quip about football is: "The English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it."

Brazilians refer to the national football team as the "Seleção," which literally means "selection" and can be translated "the selected".
