Club career

Early career

Lúcio played for youth teams Planaltina EC and CR Guará before signing for his first professional club, Internacional, in 1997.

Germany

In January 2001, he moved to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of €8.5 million. The following season was bittersweet for Leverkusen as the club surrendered a five point lead atop the Bundesliga by losing two of its last three matches while Borussia Dortmund swept ahead with three consecutive victories in the final matches to finish a point ahead of Leverkusen. They also experienced defeat in the DFB Pokal final, losing 4–2 to Schalke, and in the 2002 UEFA Champions League Final against Real Madrid, in which Lúcio cancelled out Raúl's 8th minute goal just five minutes later with a header only for Zinedine Zidane to give Real a 2–1 win with a sublime volley just before half-time. Despite the disappointing end to the season, Lúcio's impressive individual displays drew the attention of several of Europe's top clubs.

In 2004, he joined Bayern Munich on a six-year contract. Following Oliver Kahn's retirement in 2008, Dutchman Mark van Bommel was named club captain with Lúcio as vice-captain.

Internazionale

On 16 July 2009, Lúcio moved to Italian club Internazionale, signing a three-year contract with the Serie A champions.[1] He scored his first goal with Inter on 23 September 2009 against Napoli with a header from a corner kick. Lúcio also scored an own goal in the UEFA Championship in the group stages against Dynamo Kyiv, resulting in a draw. However, he redeemed himself with his contribution to the team's defence.

International career

In the 2002 FIFA World Cup quarter-final match against England, Lúcio made a mistake that allowed Michael Owen to score the opening goal. Luiz Felipe Scolari defended him, stating that he had made no other mistakes. In the final against Germany, Lúcio bore the full brunt of a free-kick, but managed to stay on his feet to complete playing all 630 minutes of the tournament. He was one of three players to do so along with goalkeeper Marcos and right back captain Cafu.

At junior level, he played for Brazil in the football tournament in the 2000 Olympics.

In the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he set a FIFA record by playing 386 consecutive minutes without committing a foul, a streak which was finally broken in Brazil's 1–0 quarter-final loss to France.

In August 2006, Lúcio was appointed as captain by current Brazil manager Dunga.

On 28 June 2009, Lúcio scored the game-winning goal in the 84th minute for Brazil in the finals of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup against the United States. Lúcio converted on a header from an Elano corner-kick which beat American goalkeeper Tim Howard.[2]

Personal life

Lúcio is married to Dione, with whom he has three children: Victoria, João Vítor, and Valentinna.[3]

Lucio is an evangelical Christian, and frequently talks about the way his faith sustains his life in professional football.[4]
