What happens when three Cruzeiro supporters reunite over beer, grilled meats and music? If they are Weiller Mello, Júnior Caramelo and Gustavo Balaio, you form a pagoda band and call yourselves “Os Camisa 10.” In soccer, the player who wears the number 10 jersey is considered the best on the team. Legends from Pelé to Ronaldinho to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have donned the number for their respective clubs.

It is with the same comparison that the trio of friends named their band The Jersey Number 10. They wanted to send the message that they always want to be the best.

We will be highlighting Os Camisa 10 along with nine other Brazilian musicians in our free download, Pelé 10: Singing Soccer which will be available in the lead up to World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
