DIDA (#1)

Image

Nélson de Jesus Silva, better known simply as Dida (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈdʒidɐ]), is a Brazilian football goalkeeper. After starting his senior club career in Brazil in the early 1990s with Esporte Clube Vitória, he later established his reputation as a penalty kick-saving specialist with Cruzeiro EC and SC Corinthians. He is perhaps best remembered for his successful and often tumultuous ten-year stint with A.C. Milan from 2000 to 2010, with whom he won multiple trophies and individual awards but became equally known for errors as his excellent gameplay, in addition to gaining media attention for being hit by a lit flare in a 2005 match against crosstown rival F.C. Internazionale. He won one Serie A title (Scudetto) and twice the UEFA Champions League with Milan, with the first of those victories coming after he saved three penalties against Juventus. One of four Rossoneri goalies with over 300 total career appearances, Dida was inducted into Milan's Hall of Fame in 2014, and has joined other former club players for various off-pitch events and exhibition matches following his 2010 departure. After a two-year absence from playing, he returned to Brazil in 2012, suiting up for three teams—Portuguesa, Grêmio, and Internacional—in as many seasons. He is currently a free agent after his contract with Internacional expired in December 2015.
