Marcos Roberto Silveira Reis (born on August 4, 1973, in Oriente, São Paulo), known simply as Marcos, or yet, São Marcos, is a Brazilian football goalkeeper who won the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He currently plays for Palmeiras.


Club career

He has been playing for Brazilian professional club Palmeiras since 1992 and is the first goalkeeper since 1999 after a injury of Velloso, the first-choice goalkeeper at the time. With outstanding performances in the Copa Libertadores 1999 he helped the team achieve the title, passing through the Palmeiras' arch rivals Corinthians in the penalty shoot-outs in the quarter-final. In 2000 once again he faced Corinthians in the Libertadores, this time at the semi-final level, and again eliminated the rivals in a penalty competition.

In 2002 after a fantastic World Cup participation with Brazil's team he received a proposal from the English team Arsenal, but the deal never occurred. In 2002 he got the first of a series of injuries that affected his career.

In 2003 he was the star of Palmeiras in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B and helped the team got back to the first division.

In 2008 he helped Palmeiras win the Campeonato Paulista 2008. Marcos played his 400th match for Palmeiras on September 21, 2008 in a Campeonato Brasileiro Série A match between his club and Vasco.[1]

He also received a special shirt for playing his 400th match. The number 400 is printed on the back, with his name and the writings "O melhor goleiro do Brasil" (The best goalkeeper in Brazil). In the front, all the titles that he has won along with Palmeiras and Brazil's national team are printed.[2]

International career

Marcos debuted for Brazil in a match against Spain on November 13, 1999. Previously, he was included in Brazil's squad for Copa América 1999 and 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup as a second-choice goalkeeper. He remained as Brazil's backup goalkeeper as Dida and Rogério Ceni was preferred ahead of him. He became Brazil's starting goalkeeper in Copa América 2001 and retained that position after the tournament, relegating Dida to the bench.

He was subsequently included in Brazil's squad for 2002 FIFA World Cup as the first-choice goalkeeper. He started every game in the tournament and played every minutes of Brazil's match in the tournament. He had four clean sheets and only conceded four goals in seven matches and was elected the fourth-best goalkeeper in the tournament, as Brazil won the World Cup for the record fifth time.

However, Marcos lost his place in the team after the World Cup. He made only four more international appearances after the World Cup and was left out of Brazil's squad for 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup and Copa América 2004. In 2005, he was recalled and included in the squad for the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup. He made one appearances in the tournament, starting in a 2–2 draw against Japan during the group stage, which turn out to be his last appearances for Brazil.

On October 6, 2006, Marcos announced his retirement from international football, while still continue playing for Palmeiras, the only team he has played in his career.
