1 Coupe De La Ligue, 1 Paulista Championship, and 1 Copa Do Nordeste comprise the total number of 43 major trophies Alves has won in his lengthy yet highly successful professional career at the club and country level.

If the Brazil captain continues his career with the national team and aims for the last shot to add the holy grail of football, i.e. the FIFA World Cup trophy to his collection in Qatar 2022, remains to be seen. However, he has set an example yet again by leading a young Brazilian team to glory at the Tokyo Olympics in Japan.
