  • Career Highlights: One of three over-age players on the Brazilian Olympic team, the aptly-named Hulk is a dynamic scorer with incredible strength combined with speed. His athleticism and quickness on the ball are reasons he's capable of playing on the wing or underneath another forward. He's become a regular member of Brazil's full national team, scoring three goals in 13 games, including two in a 3-1 friendly win over Denmark on May 26. Hulk's ability to find the net has been evident with FC Porto in Portugal's Primeira Liga, totaling 52 goals in 96 games over four seasons. He led the league with 23 goals in 2010-11, and led Porto to a Treble with titles in the league, Portuguese Cup and Europa League. He followed that up with 16 more goals as Porto went on to win back-to-back domestic titles. A lack of discipline has been an issue for Hulk, as he's been given seven yellow cards in each of the last two seasons and was involved in a brawl in December 2009. He missed 13 games. Still, Hulk is one of the most sought after players in the world, and helping Brazil to its first Olympic gold medal may only increase his value.
