Lucimar Ferreira da Silva (born May 8, 1978 in Brasília) more commonly known as Lúcio, is a Brazilian football defender who plays for Bayern Munich and is the captain of the Brazilian national team.

He is known for being a part of the 2002 World Cup winning Brazilian national team. He is married to Dione with whom he has three children: Victoria, João Victor, and Valentinna. [cite web

He is widely considered as Brazil's best central defender and a key member of the Brazilian squad's defense. He also contributes in attack, frequently making runs into the opponent's half using his technique and aerial ability to full effect.

In the 2002 World Cup quarterfinal match against England, Lúcio made a mistake that allowed Michael Owen to score the opening goal. Scolari defended him, stating that he had made no other mistakes. In the final against Germany, Lúcio bore the full brunt of a free-kick, but managed to stay on his feet to complete playing all 630 minutes of the tournament. He was one of three players to do so along with goalkeeper Marcos and right back captain, Cafu.

In the junior level, he played for Brazil in the football tournament in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. His position in that team was that of a striker.

In the 2006 World Cup, he set a FIFA record by playing 386 consecutive minutes without committing a foul, a streak which was finally broken in Brazil's 1-0 quarterfinal loss to France.

In August 2006, Lúcio was appointed as captain by current Brazil coach Dunga.
