Namesakes: Alex

There are at least five famous players with this name. The best of them is legendary playmaker Alexsandro de Souza from Coritiba, who made Cruzeiro champion in 2003 and got Bola de Oro for that. Now he pulls Fenerbahce on his shoulders in the Champions League. The tall and mighty fullback Alex Rodrigo Dias da Costa managed to play for Santos, PSV and Chelsea already, and is regularly called to Brazilian national team. A couple of months ago there have been rumours that Barcelna expresses interest to Internacional's polifunctional midfielder Alex Meschini, which automatically promotes him to the group of outstanding Alexes too. Sao Paulo had an Alex of their own, fullback Alex Bruno Costa Fernandes. Now he is in Botafogo. And finally, the last famous Alex - Alexander Pereira Cardoso, another Bola de Oro's holder (2001) is known better as Alex Mineiro.
