Julio Cesar makes history


Inter keeper surpasses Taffarel, setting new invincibility record for a Brazil goalkeeper

RIO DE JANEIRO - With last night's goalless draw against Colombia, Inter's Julio Cesar has set a new invincibility record for a Brazil goalkeeper. He has kept clean sheets in his last five outings against Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela and Colombia, bringing his invincibility to 492 minutes and surpassing the previous record of 401 minutes, held by ex-Parma keeper Taffarel.

"I don't worry about setting records. The main thing is to win, with or without conceding goals," Julio Cesar said after Wednesday's World Cup qualifying clash at the Maracana. "But I'm still proud to have overtaken Taffarel, one of my idols when I was a kid."
