Another Brazilian forward in our countdown is Robinho. Even when the world didn’t fully recognize the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Robinho was expected to become the next big player after Adriano had disappointed the nation. He played for some great teams like Real Madrid and AC Milan but he simply couldn’t reach his true potential. He was inconsistent in the pitch and there would be times when Robinho would seem as if he just started to learn playing football. It would be controversial to say that his career was an underachieving one, but after seeing the flashes of brilliance of this footballer, it would be appropriate to tag him under this category.
