Zózimo Alves Calazães, best known as Zózimo (19 June 1932 – 17 July 1977) was a Brazilian footballer whose career as a defender and midfielder lasted from 1948 to 1967.

Born in Plataforma, a bairro of Salvador, the capital of Bahia, Zózimo played for Brazil's São Cristóvão, Bangu, Flamengo, Portuguesa and Esportiva de Guarantinguetá, as well as Peru's Sporting Cristal in Lima and El Salvador's Club Deportivo Águila in San Miguel. He won one Rio de Janeiro State Championship in 1965 and was a two-time winner for the Brazilian team at the FIFA World Cup in 1958 and 1962. In his 19-year career he earned a reputation as one of Brazil's most highly skilled players.

Four weeks after his 45th birthday, Zózimo died in a road accident in Rio de Janeiro.[1]
