Click through the gallery above to see 10 players who have won both the Champions League and Copa Libertadores, according to World Football Index.

The Champions League and Copa Libertadores, which are the biggest continental club tournaments in Europe and South America, respectively, have been home to some of the best talents in world football over the years, but only a handful of players have got their hands on both titles. 

Former Brazil international goalkeeper Dida is one of many stars from the South American superpower to have won both crowns. The 2002 FIFA World Cup winner won the Copa Libertadores with Cruzeiro in 1997, before lifting the Champions League with AC Milan on two separate occasions.

Dida's countryman Cafu was also present in Milan's trophy-winning squad of 2006/07, which came 15 years after he helped boyhood club Sao Paulo to the first of two consecutive Copa Libertadores titles in the early 1990s.

Fellow Brazilians who have won both titles during their careers include Roque Junior and Danilo, as well as global superstars Ronaldinho and Neymar Jr. They are joined by three of their Argentine rivals, including former Inter Milan and Juventus defenders Walter Samuel and Juan Pablo Sorin, and ex-Manchester United star Carlos Tevez.
