The title of the national tournament had already escaped twice, in 2003 and 2004, not to mention that in 2006 it was against its biggest rival, Vasco.

Even if it had its merits, the team did not have the best campaign, managing to qualify in the first phase in fourth place.

World Cup – 1981

At that time, since Santos, in 1963, Brazil had not had a world champion, however, this story changed the course of the competition in 1981. With a more mature generation already in place, the conquest was a kind of coronation to one of the most victorious seasons of the history of Flamengo.
