Djalma Pereira Dias dos Santos known simply as Djalma Santos (also spelled Dejalma Santos, born 27 February 1929 in São Paulo, Brazil) is a Brazilian former football player who started for the Brazil national team in four World Cups, winning two, in 1958 and 1962. Santos is one of the greatest defensive backs that have played for Brazil. While primarily known for his defensive skills, he found time to raid down the right flank and was steadfast in support of the attacking game.

He played in the World Cups of 1954, 1958, 1962, and 1966, the last one aged 37. Santos helped create the final goal of the 1962 Final for Brazil. Noting that the Czech goalkeeper Schroiff was somewhat off his line, Santos lofted a long, massive, high arcing ball, into the goalmouth aided by the glare of the afternoon sun. Schroiff mishandled the cross, and Brazilian striker Vava hammered the ball into goal.

He was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.
